Brooklyn residents are riled over a performance artist who's been delivering bags of fake crack. The Daily News says Nate Hill makes the deliveries dressed in a white tuxedo and a dolphin headpiece. He shows up between 10 p.m.

and 2 a.m., like a real drug pusher.

Enrica Serrero says she ordered the "candy crack" at a Williamsburg party last Sunday. Says the 21-year-old: "I'd definitely do it again."

Hill calls it "amusing theater."

Ismael Torres, who's president of a tenant association, is not amused. Says Torres: "I've seen too many cemeteries, too many hospitals, too many funeral parlors."

Kevin Wadalavage of Outreach Project, which treats substance abusers, says he is "dumbfounded."
