QUICKLINKS: A Couple Of Items From The New York Daily News

NYDNsc

 

  • A take on the recent “crime wave” in Greenpoint. Interesting quote/teaser:
    “We always have these waves (of crime),” said Community Affairs Officer Steve Truglio of the 94th Precinct. 

    Truglio declined to discuss if the precinct is altering its tactics to combat the crime increase. But he did say criminals are attracted to the neighborhood for the same reason as Willie Sutton robbed banks — that’s where the money is.

  • A run-down of the pistol-whipping which came to pass this weekend.

 

From The New York Shitty Inbox: An Update Regarding The Home Invasions/Sexual Assaults Came To Pass This Weekend…

From the 94th Precinct via an anonymous tipster:

1. On Monday, August 12, 2013 at approximately 2000 hours the suspect knocked on the door of an apartment in the confines of the 94 Precinct. The victim, F/A/27 opened the door and the suspect struck her in the face knocking her unconscious. When the victim awakened the suspect was on top of her sexually assaulting her. The victim began to fight off the suspect and screamed causing him to flee with her cell phone and laptop. The victim was removed to Woodhull Hospital for treatment and evaluation.

2. At approximately 2145 hours, the suspect entered an unlocked door of an apartment in the vicinity of Russell Street and Driggs Avenue, in the confines of the 94 Precinct and forced the victim, F/H/40 onto the couch.  The victim’s screams alerted her husband who fought the suspect off her.  He subsequently fled the apartment with her cell phone. No serious injuries were sustained from this incident.

3.  At approximately 2205 hours, as the victim, F/W/44  was securing her bicycle to a pole at Kingsland Avenue and Nassau Avenue, in the confines of the 94 Precinct, the suspect approached her, struck her in the face with a bag and sexually assaulted her.  No serious injuries were sustained from this incident.

4. At 2223 hours the suspect entered an unlocked door of an apartment located in the vicinity of Norman Avenue and Kingsland Avenue, in the confines of the 94 Precinct. Once inside, the suspect forced the victim, F/W/37 onto the couch.  The victim’s screams alerted her roommate who fought the suspect off her.  He subsequently fled the apartment in unknown direction with a cell phone and laptop computer. No serious injuries were sustained from this incident.

Additional Impact officers were requested to conduct a canvass of the suspect described as M/B or M/H 20-22, short hair, strong cheek bones and tan shorts. At approximately 0130 hours on August 13, 2013 two Impact officers were approached by a female who stated there was a homeless male sleeping on the 3rd floor of 161 Nassau St. Officers entered the location and observed the homeless male sleeping who also fit the description of the suspect wanted in the previous incidents.  The suspect taken into custody. Property believed to be that of the victims were found on the suspect. The investigation ongoing.

The list of charges against this suspect (whose identity I have chosen NOT to make public) are as follows:

  • Charges

New York Shitty Day Ender: Live From The 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting

(Or: Welcome to the 94th, Commanding Officer Ryan!)

Given all the recent hoopla regarding the respite shelter at the Greenpoint Reformed Church* and a murder at Cooper Parks Houses, tonight’s meeting was, well, quite calm. Nonetheless we got to meet our new commanding officer and he got to meet us. More specifically: he got to meet a stalwart attendee of these convocations. I write of no one other than Phyllis. So help me, but I suspect she likes him— but you can draw your own conclusions, gentle readers. Without further ado, here we go!

  • He likes Greenooint and North Williamsburg. Love it!

  • Some more information about the stabbing/homicide at the Cooper Park Houses.
  • Phyllis speaks!

  • Rolfe Carle inquires about a woman who was hit by a car on Milton Street (skip to 1:48) January 24th. C.O. Ryan, promised to follow up on this
  • A citizen complains about graffiti.

Otherwise, here’s some (more) news you can use:

commcouncilcalendar2013
1. The calendar for the 94th Precinct Community Council meetings for (the rest of) 2013.

ASP rules large

2. The alternate side parking “suspension” calendar for (the rest of 2013).

And that’s all she wrote!

*Which will be relocated to the Church of the Ascension’s Hall on Java Street. This is where tonight’s meeting came to pass. Follows is an announcement from the Church of the Ascension’s website:

For those of you who are not in the know, this was the original location for this facility. Reverend Merz is a very caring, sensitive fellow and I have no doubt he will run it well. Regardless of the “controversy” surrounding this issue (and believe you me, there was a lot), I am simply happy to know ten of our “local” homeless will be provided a safe, warm place to sleep. They are our neighbors.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Word From The 94th Precinct

On Friday, February 1, 2013 at approximately 9:00 p.m. a male victim, 39 years old was stabbed in the upper thigh by an unknown perpretrator in front of 275 Jackson Street, Brooklyn (Cooper Park Houses Development). The victim was transported to Woodhull Medical Center. On Sunday, February 3, 2013 the victim died from his injuries. This occurrence is currently being investigated by the 94th Precinct Detective Squad.

If you should have any questions regarding the above notification please contact P.O. Adamo or P.O. Truglio (94th Precinct Community Affairs) at (718) 383-5298.

A brief Op Ed from yours truly:

Whenever I read/hear about violence at the Cooper Houses I think of this young woman:

http://www.newyorkshitty.com/greenpoint-goodness/69799

Kayleigh deserves to live in just as safe a home as the kitten she entrusted to my care. I will never forget her compassion via doggedness in ensuring the kitten she found (or more accurately: found and “chose” her!) would have a happy, safe life. We, as a community, should be doing our damnedest to give her the same.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: And Now A Word From The 94th Precinct

hursonandtheladies

On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, Captain James Ryan was assigned as the new Commanding Officer of the 94th Precinct. Deputy Inspector Terence Hurson has been reassigned to Staten Island as the Commanding Officer of the new 121 Precinct, which is scheduled to open this spring. Should you have any questions contact 94th Precinct Community Affairs at (718) 383-5298..     

Speaking as a resident of the 94th, I feel compelled to state that Mr. Hurson (as seen above at left) was by far the best Commanding Officer this precinct has had in the 13 years I have lived here. Deputy Inspector Hurson’s sincere interest in community feedback and astonishing diligence responding to a manifold number of inquiries from yours truly (even while he was on vacation, I’ll note) during his tenure in our fair burgh was greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten.
Goodbye and good luck in your new precinct, Mr. Hurson. You will be missed!

It was all smiles at last night’s first Community Council meeting of the New Year. This is not to suggest that there were not serious topics discussed, however. There most certainly were! Among them:

  1. A general synopsis of crime statistics for 2012 (NOTE: a more detailed presentation will be given next month, so mark your calendars!). Yours truly found the rape statistics particularly sobering (12 versus 3 in 2011).
  2. A discussion of the homeless situation in Greenpoint. The good news: the ten bed respite center for our local homeless is up and running at the Greenpoint Reformed Church. The bad news: neighbors of this facility have already commenced complaining.
  3. The graffiti yours truly happened upon recently at Java Street Pop-Up Park. I’ll go into more detail on that in bit. Without further ado, here we go!

General Introduction/Preliminary Business

D.I. Hurson Gives The Rundown

  • Mr. Hurson recognizes two “Cops of The Month” who caught a sexual assault in progress.
  • Overall crime was up 14% over 2011. Foremost among them: burglary. D.I. Hurson cites new development as attracting burglars. There were 12 rapes versus three in 2011. There were three shootings.
  • A presentation of 2012 statistics will come to pass at next month’s meeting.
  • New Year’s Eve was lively. The foremost complaint, unsurprisingly, was noise.

Detective Komar Gives The Traffic Report/Question & Answer Session Commences

  • Pedestrian accidents were down: 55 in 2012 versus 75 in 2011.
  • Bicyclist accidents were up: 78 in 2012 versus 67 in 2011.
  • Truck accidents are down: 385 in 2012 versus 441 in 2011.
  • A concern about confusion arising as a result of the Nassau Avenue construction is raised by a member of the Community Council. Lincoln Restler promises to follow up with the MTA.
  • Public Safety Chair Tom Burrows queries D.I. Hurson about all-night party permits (there were 8 issued New Year’s Eve in the 94th) and advocated that the Community Board be notified moving forward.

On The Subject Of The “Swastika” Graffiti

  • It is posited by the 94th that the graffiti might be the handiwork of youths who frequented the waterfront a couple of years ago and therefore may be old.
  • Nonetheless, they have brought it to the attention of the Hate Crimes Unit and are attempting to contact the owner of the property so as to get all the graffiti removed.

POST-SCRIPT: While I readily conceded to Mr. Komar (and in fact, HOPED) they were correct that in their assessment this graffiti was a few years old and I simply missed it on previous forays this is not the case. After the meeting I remembered that I had documented the conditions at the India Street Pier and the surrounding environs back on August 29th, 2012. While I did not have any photographs of the section of wall in question, I did capture it on video. Follows is what I found:

videoscreencapNYS

As of August 29, 2012 it was not there.

swastikaANNO

Thus this graffiti is, at the very most, just shy of four months old. But don’t take my word for it: watch the footage for yourself.

I have since brought this to the 94th’s attention.

  • A question is raised about 400 McGuinness. More specifically: does it address Greenpoint’s homeless population.

Elizabeth Hulson, Community Council Headmistress Extraordinaire, Gets Well Deserved Props!

Councilman Levin Speaks

  • Mr. Levin gives a rundown about the new ten bed respite center for our local homeless. This is located at the Greenpoint Reformed Church and administered by Common Ground.
  • He clarifies 400 McGuinness is an assessment center. Upon entering an intake center men are sent to this facility, assessed and then sent to more permanent housing.
  • A question is raised by a citizen about panhandling. Mr. Levin posits that the men of which this lady speaks may be residents of either the Greenpoint Hotel (which is located at 1109 Manhattan Avenue, not 1155 as Mr. Levin states) or the 3/4 house located around the corner: 66-68 Clay Street. He outlines the history and deplorable conditions of these facilities. Those of you who have wondered what is going on thereabouts, please give this a listen.
  • Anyone in the Greenpoint community who experienced flooding as a result of Sandy is encouraged to apply for grants via FEMA.

And that’s all she wrote!
