Concerned neighbors recently met with Sin Sin management to discuss problems they were experiencing "as a result of Sin Sin's method of operation, ranging from people partying in their cars, to crowds on the street, trash and waste deposited by patrons, violence from patrons."
[Updated] Patrick Hedlund at DNAinfo has a follow-up on my report from this morning:
A man is in critical condition after being shot twice on a busy stretch of Second Avenue early Sunday morning, police said.
The unnamed victim, 43, was shot in the chest and arm at the corner of East Fifth Street at about 4 a.m., NYPD sources said.
He was transported to Bellevue Hospital and remains in critical condition, police said.
The club's owner, Philip Quilter, told DNA that he "didn't believe the people involved were inside the place at any point."
