Unfortunately our local Councilman invited people on probation from prison to clean the neighborhood. We also have two high schools nearby. Tough kids who thieve try all doors. We all have to toughen up now. Wouldn’t want to get back from lunch break to walk in on an intruder.


I really can’t understand how videos like this don’t implicate suspects 100% of the time.


Crime is down isn’t it Mr. DumBlasio. LIC seems to be seeing more and more burglaries.


Gentrification. When you see a neighborhood where people are paying at least $3000 per month for a studio, it’s assumed that’s where the money is. The divide between the rich and poor is so great now- didn’t DeBlahsio promise to fix that? He’s only helped to make it worse.
