From The New York Shitty Inbox: Police Activity On Clifford Place?

A lady we’ll call “L” writes:

Hello, I’m a Greenpointer and follow your blog. Since you are always in the know I’d thought I’d reach out to you. I think something bad happened on last night on our street. cops all over the street and one was sitting outside the bldg across the street. 11 Clifford. Do you know anything about this?

No, I do not know anything about this incident— but YIKES! On a (somewhat) related note, yesterday I was asked about an incident on Manhattan Avenue and India Street culminating in this:

Apparently these was a car chase pursuit between New York’s Finest and a “perp” Saturday night around 11:30 p.m. Many police cars (including one which jumped the curb, took out a stop sign and damaged the above call box) were noted. That’s all I know. If anyone knows what happened here or at 11 Clifford do share via comments or via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!

UPDATE, 3:40 p.m.: I have been told that the incident on Clifford Street came to pass between 2:00 and 5:30 a.m., and although drugs and blood were found, there was no body. No body = no murder, folks.

UPDATE, 9:20 p.m.: Now I am being told there is a body. A tipster writes:

So now I’m told via my next door neighbor who talked to the owner of the building on Clifford that there WAS a body. I guess the guy was beat up on his stoop around 9pm, in front of a lot of witnesses. He made it into his house, where the landlady heard a big crash around 1:30 or 2, and then called the cops to check on him. That’s when they found him dead. He was a guy in his early 30s who owned two dogs. No one has wanted to ID any of his attackers for fear of retaliation.

  2. Rumor on the block is that it was a drug-related murder. Apparently, neighbors saw blood all over the stoop after a guy got the life kicked out of him both inside and outside of the building. Then bags of “green stuff” were seen being carried out by detectives when they came to investigate.

    There was police tape on both ends of the block between Calyer/Meserole early this morning. A cop is still stationed outside the building as of 1pm today.

    My upstairs neighbor Betty is the nice lady who presided over the recent Precinct 94 community meeting. She was going to put a call in to her contacts to find out how many of the above details are actually correct….

  4. Everyone needs to take the drama down a notch.
    Re: “So now I’m told via my next door neighbor who talked to the owner of the building on Clifford that there WAS a body…” I live at 11 Clifford and the owner of the building was in ASIA until a few days ago. I have spoken with him and all it simply was was a bad fight and there was some recreational marijuana found. People were drunk and that is why it was hard rounding up the answers. Everything is fine, no one is dead or has any serious injuries and no one is in jail. Take a knee Clifford place neighbors/greenpoint and keep this sleepy street as is. 11 Clifford is a great apt and the landlord and super are wonderful.

Tell me what you're thinking...
