The Post has a piece today titled The East "Pillage" (And the paper even acknowledges the original source -- Scoopy!)
Someone orchestrated a break-in at famed composer Philip Glass' home in the East Village, but got away only with a cellphone.
Magdalena Adorno, 41, faces charges of burglary and possession of stolen property in the July 17 incident at the property on East Third Street, cops said yesterday.
She was arrested within hours of the burglary, which has neighbors talking about how the area near the Bowery has lately become more crime-ridden.
Police didn't say what was taken, but a story in The Villager said the thief got away only with a cellphone.
Area residents and business people say the neighborhood has become a drunken party zone for noisy teens and 20-some- things who litter the streets with trash.
"All the junkies and prostitutes are gone, and replaced by drunken hooligans," said Claude Campbell, who for 20 years has owned the East Village Music Store.
"At least you could tell the junkies to go away," Campbell said.
