Live From The 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting
Filed under: 11211, 11222, Criminal Activity, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
All in all the proceedings at last night’s convocation were pretty subdued. However there were a few points of interest, among them:
- A bevy of guest speakers, including a trio of wonderfully charming participants of the NYPD’s Explorers program speak.
- A pair of gentleman who were burglarizing our local watering holes in the wee hours of the morning have been apprehended!
- Phyllis, a stalwart attendee of these proceedings, tenders her two cents (and then some) regarding what I presume to be a meter maid.
Without further ado, here we go!
Part I: Roll Call & a Review of Minutes From the Previous Meeting
Part II: Minutes are accepted, the new date for Community Council meetings is announced; a representative from the NYPD’s Community Affairs Office speaks
Part III: A Presentation by the Explorer’s Program
- You can view the brochure for this program by clicking here.
Part IV: A citizen lauds these youths for cleaning Jerzy Popieluzko Square (this is pretty awesome)
Part V: A representative from the Youth Court speaks & D.I. Hurson gives a rundown of recent crime trends
- Crime was up for the month of February. Mr. Hurson attributes this to unseasonably warm weather.
- Burglaries are still a problem. He states that two men responsible for a string of burglaries at bars in his precinct have been identified/apprehended. Simply put, these two men were breaking into bars after hours. One was caught at Bellwether on Union Avenue.
- Street robberies (for electronics) is still a concern. Recently a rash of these came to pass on Roebling Street between North 8 and North 4 Street. The perpetrators are between the ages of 14 and 18 years of age and one young woman has been arrested.
- Car break-ins are still a concern as well.
Part VI: The Q & A Session Continues
- Phyllis tenders some remarks regarding one Officer Brown and truck drivers. Among other things she asserts Ms. Brown is overweight. D.I. Hurson begs to differ.
- Concerns about the Production Lounge are raised (again).
Part VII: Q & A Session, Continued
- Concerns about registered sex offenders (and posting flyers of them) are raised.
- D.I. Hurson notes that many hail from 300 Skillman Avenue (a homeless shelter located on the premises of the Greenpoint Hospital) and 66-68 Clay Street (a three quarter house)
And that’s all she wrote!
