Brooklyn street artist Judith Supine climbed on top of the Queensboro Bridge to install one of his pieces over the weekend.

Police are investigating after a YouTube video was posted over the weekend of a Brooklyn street artist scaling the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge to install one of his pieces.

The video shows Judith Supine as he makes his way across the bridge before his nighttime climb, then cuts to the artist perched on top of the span with views of the city skyline before he installs his work.

The NYPD said it is reviewing the footage and no charges have been filed yet.

Supine’s trek up the East River bridge coincides with the March 29 opening of his show at the Mecka Gallery in  East Williamsburg.

This isn’t the first time Supine has pulled a daring stunt in the name of art.

In 2009, he placed a piece on top of the Wiliamsburg Bridge and two years earlier he lowered one from the Manhattan Bridge.

This weekend’s incident raises more concerns over security in the city following recent breaches at the World Trade Center.
