Clouds nys2

Yesterday afternoon’s cloud cover was a beautiful sight— albeit a very brief one. I took a moment to capture it. I’m glad I did!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: What Happened On Dupont Street

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I have had this brought to my attention by a number of people, including a Dupont Street resident who sent me the above photo. She writes on December 29th at 10:11 p.m.:

About 30 minutes ago, Dupont & Manhattan was lit up like a Christmas tree. Ambulances, squad cars, the works. The word on the street is that a young man was stabbed to death. I hope it isn’t true.

Unfortunately, it is true. Per the NYPD via an anonymous tipster:

On Monday, December 29, 2014 at approximately 2037 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a male assaulted at 131 Dupont Street within the confines of the 94th Precinct. Upon arrival, police observed a 37 year-old conscious male with a stab wound to the torso. Upon investigation, it was determined that the victim had a dispute with another male in the vestibule of the location when the victim was stabbed. EMS transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital and he was pronounced DOA. The are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

*****UPDATE 12/30/14 LT A*****

The deceased has been identified as:

Truszkowski, Zbigniew
37-year-old male
131 Dupont Street
Brooklyn, NY
