I am very interested in knowing exactly what happened to this guy. I am in that exact spot very often and would love to know if this was criminal.


Idk about this incident but if your curious about crimes in the area the NYCPD published an online map that shows where, when, and what happened throughout the city. It’s interesting to see all the things that happen on seemingly quiet streets.
