From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part III: What’s Up At 373 Graham Avenue?
Filed under: 11211, Criminal Activity, East Williamsburg, East Williamsburg Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Many of the people reading this site are familiar with the phenomenon that is 373 Graham Avenue. For those of you who are not in the know you can get up to speed by clicking here, here and here. Suffice it to say something very, VERY strange is going on there.
A sign has been posted by the ostensible owner of this establishment extolling upon the pleasurable experience that is “central booking”. And if what I have received this correspondence evening is any indication, the author of this tome has gained firsthand experience of just this. Tonight. An anonymous tipster writes:
Hey — you know that weirdo who has that weird storefront with all the weird posters and garbage on the street on Graham Avenue and Skillman? This guy?
The cops just arrested him a few minutes ago. The showed up outside his place around 6:50 and were talking calmly to him for about 20 minutes. Then they handcuffed him and continued talking, until he got quietly in the back of their car. Couldn’t really make out anything they were saying, but as a couple who lives nearby, we were pretty stoked to see this. That guy is a creep.
Per the head of the 94th Precinct, D.I. Hurson, the author of this tome was arrested for menacing someone with a knife. Can I honestly say I am surprised by this? No, not really. This situation has been building critical mass for some time. Yikes!
