Hey Miss Heather,
Early this a.m. (2:30?) my husband and I were awakened to commotion and yelling outside our house, which is mid block India St.between Franklin & Manhattan. My husband looked out and saw cops restraining a young man on the asphalt between 2 parked cars. A total of three police cars were converged on the scene, 2 having come down India St. the wrong way. The young man was strenuously restrained and loaded into a police car. After which police officers searched the gutters and snow mounds with flashlights. The police left about 3:30. This scene was a lot like the gunfire incident on our block last year. And it seems like gunplay is getting to be a recurring theme here in the point. Have you heard anything about this incident? Your blog was the first place I looked for information. Yes you’re that much of a neighborhood resource!! For which I say thanks.
First off, thanks for the nice words S. They are appreciated! Secondly, I have not heard anything about this incident. I have spent most of today enjoying the beautiful weather!
