NYPD adds a portable tower on 13th Street


EV Grieve correspondent Bobby Williams notes the arrival of a portable NYPD watch tower on 13th Street between Avenue B and Avenue C in the Campos Plaza... Not sure just yet why this has been added...

This is NYPD making sure all the people in the public housing understand NYPD is lording it over them in the total surveillance state.

I think the watch tower is a good idea. I just moved to alphabet city and it is the biggest mistake of my life. I'm a student and um I wish someone could have guided me through the whole apartment hunting process. Might end my lease early. I'm sick of the drama I hear on the streets late at night when I'm SLEEEEEPING. Creepy men keep staring at me. I HATE IT. IT'S USELESS BEING STARED AT AND HARASSED OMG. LIFE SUCKS RIGHT NOW.

@Bob Arihood--is it true--gangs and a current murder or is it a snide remark??

@Lindsay, sorry you about your experience but did you spend anytime in the neighborhood at all before moving in? I'm not talking about Saturday night bar hopping with friends but on a weeknight? The neighborhood is better than it once was but the scale is tipping back a little to the bad old days. I know lots of posters on this blog are looking forward to the crime but I'm not one of them. Seriously, if you feel unsafe just break your lease. Two months rent is worth peace of mind.
