hi miss heather,

wasn’t sure where to send a note to you… as im still sleepy on this sunday morning. but i was wondering if you have heard anything about the supposed (said my cabby) shooting on bedford and n. 6th last night? the street was blocked off and it looked pretty serious, but of course nobody knew anything …. and of course, i cant find anything online.

thanks for your help- and thanks for your awesome blog!!!


Anyone out there have the scoop? If so please share via comments. This is some scary stuff— especially now that they’ve brought back the pedestrian mall and this street is teeming with even more people.

Miss Heather

UPDATE 6:38 p.m.: It would appear there was a bomb threat (see comments). Well, that’s a relief!

P.S.: For the record I was in Long Island City last night and have an air-tight alibi. 😉

  2. I heard it was a bomb scare—but no bomb. My friend lives on the block and he couldn’t get home.

  6. As I remember, a young medical student was shot on N6th somewhere btw Berry & Kent 3-5 years ago?
