This Horrifying Clown Is Haunting Staten Island
New York Observer ^

Posted on 03/25/2014 10:57:26 AM PDT by Gamecock

We at the Observer would advise skipping this story if you plan on sleeping without horrific nightmares ever again.

If social media is to be believed, there is a man dressed as a clown wandering around Staten Island at night. Witnesses describe him as bald, wearing a trademark blue and yellow clown suit, holding balloons and OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS PICTURE.

The clown, which has reportedly been spotted hanging around the Grasmere and Richmond Valley train stations according to the SI Advance, has been snapped three times and uploaded to Twitter and Instagram, providing both internet buzz and nightmare fuel.

“He was just kinda standing there waving like he is in the picture,” Westerleigh resident Vincent Innocente told the paper of his experience meeting the poor-man’s Pennywise on Sunday.

Burn down the Verrazano, burn it now please.

I saw a program last night on the Biography Channel. It was about serial killer John Wayne Gacy. He, too, liked to dress up as a clown.

Personally I find the clown who is occupying Gracie Mansion to be a lot scarier.  photo DeBlasio_zps83e17ded.jpg

You had it right the first time. Staten Island is New York in name only.

The clown from “It” is by far the scariest damn thing I’ve ever seen on the screen. This guy needs to be institutionalized.

“A candy colored clown they call the sandman”. She wore blue velvet.

A movie I saw two nights ago tho there actually were not any clowns in it. Still I think it was the most surreal thing I have ever seen.

I think any clown talking to you from a sewer / street run-off is bad.

Maybe I’m being overly-cautious.

Is it a real clown or just somebody dressed up like a clown?

Clown is about five feet tall judging by visual cues in the photo.

Honestly, I was chuckling to myself this morning driving to work, thinking: If this moron dressed like a clown would pop up to scare people in Texas, someone would just blow him away without a second thought. No clown to “haunt” or “terrorize” anyone any more.
