Hey Heather,

Last night at around 4:30 am my girlfriend and I heard someone run screaming down the street. I looked out my bathroom window in time to hear a girl talking to the cops up by Kim’s. She was telling them that a man wearing a tie-dye shirt and jeans broke into her apt at 210 Powers Street (by Humboldt) and had put a bunch of her stuff out on the street when she came home and caught him. She chased him down Powers I guess and onto Graham but lost him there. Do you know anything more about this/whether they caught the guy? Hoping you can also alert the rest of upper Graham Avenue so they can stay vigilant.
Wow, that’s some scary stuff! I do not know any more details about this incident (but I am asking around). If anyone reading this knows more about what happened this morning on Powers Street please share via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Thanks— and like Samantha says: be vigilant folks!

Yes, gentle Greenpoint readers, this would appear to be the case! Per NYC.gov:

We’re #1 at processing (and publicizing) #2! I know where I am taking my mother when she visits our fair city this spring. How about you?

P.S.: Special thanks go out to Laura Hofmann for bringing this to my attention!

 

 

 

 

 

Greenpoint Feral Furniture Watch: Humboldt Street Mattress Slalom?

Today has been a busy one for yours truly. If the copious emails I have received are any indication, I’d say the snow— which has been the basis for most of the aforementioned missives— has obstructed sidewalks and thoroughfares hereabouts, but our information super highway is functioning quite well! What’s more, someone has seen fit to have fun with the white stuff. Bedbugs be damned. CASE IN POINT:

Sherry writes (in regards to this post):

I passed by three mattresses and a box spring this morning on my way to work. One mattress, which was out for trash *in the street* at Humboldt and Norman made its way down the block (toward Nassau), which is when my mom snapped this picture. I’m thinking someone used it as a sled.

NICE.
