Last Gasp: Officer Shot On Bushwick Avenue

I have received a number of inquiries about the serious—and I mean SERIOUS: we’re talking no less than two helicopters— police activity currently transpiring on Bushwick Avenue. Here is how the scene was described to me by a resident/tipster:

Lots of SUVs
They come from both directions on grand and head south on either bushwick or Humboldt
One copter is circling low the other its hovering high up
People on the street are watching the copters and wondering why they’re there
I saw cops come from the north on both bush wick and Humboldt now

Unfortunately, I strongly suspect the above incident (as found on NYScanner)  is what precipitated this. I undoubtedly speak for many reading this (quite frankly shocking) news when I write that I hope this officer makes a full recovery and my heartfelt support goes out to his family and loved ones. I’m shocked. Just shocked.

UPDATE, 11:04 p.m.: Here’s a brief article from the New York Times outlining what happened.

UPDATE, February 2, 2012: I have received word the officer has had the bullet removed and will be okay!

What happens in your apartment… stays in your apartment

Not when one’s “indoor sports” are being advertised (illegally?) on Bushwick Avenue for all to savor! I cannot help but wonder what the residents of senior’s housing complex across the street think of this.

Spotted On Bushwick Avenue: Coming Soon

My curiousity was when I saw this long-vacant store front on Bushwick Avenue so I asked one of hte owners, the woman in the above photograph what gives. She told me they going to open up an “eating and drinking establishment” serving American fare which will be sourced out to local businesses. Intriguing.

In any case, she and her partner currently operate a watering hole on the Southside, East River, and this serves as a good a reason as any to remind everyone that the social event of the season— that being this month’s Public Safety Committee Meeting— will come to pass tonight (Cinco de Mayo!) at Greenpoint’s very own Polish National Home. If the proceedings (NOTE: the proposed “moratorium” on liquor licenses is slated to be discussed) are anywhere near as acrimonious lively as this week’s Parks & Waterfront meeting I’d say north Brooklyn is in for a memorable evening.

Community Board 1 Public Safety Committee Meeting
May 5, 2011 starting at 6:30 p.m.
Polish National Home (AKA: The Warsaw)
