Hey Heather! In response to the 4th of July sentinels, a/k/a the NYPD helicopters, I was chilling on our rooftop last night and lo and behold a VERY low flying NYPD sentinel was spied by mine eyes. This fella was extremely low. We are on a 4th floor walk up and he was parallel to the height of our building. There was also a lot of activity on the streets in the form of four-wheeled sentinels heading to the shit tits. But, the air-born sentinel was circling the area west of McGuinness, but eventually he was hovering over the shit tits. It seemed quite odd as the copter was so low I could have probably thrown one of our poorly formed tomatoes at it. Here is a shot. Sorry for it being rotated. The vantage point does not do the picture justice as the helicopter was literally 40 feet above the highest rooftop which is a mere 5 stories high.
I myself heard this myself. It was pretty jarring, to say the least. In regards to the increased police presence on July 4th, I have heard, but have yet to receive confirmation, that a police officer was shot. If/when I hear something from the 94th I will add it here. Otherwise (and closing with an interesting fact), the Shit Tits (as they are lovingly called hereabouts) are considered by the powers-that-be to be a viable terrorist target. While it is not my intent to revel in/encourage the apocalyptic, one has to admit Greenpoint being hit with a tsunami of shit is, well, interesting to say the least.
