A question on the extra lights and police presence along Avenue D



Photos and email from an EVG reader...

Any word on the reason for the heavy police presence along Avenue D & FDR Drive as well as the assemblage of generator lighting throughout Jacob Riis Houses?

Because it's Avenue D and it's dark out. Do you really need a more of an explanation than that ?

I asked one of the police officers that are always out on 8th and D - they said it is set up as a deterrent, and that they do not know of any specific incident.

It's shining into my apartment and I really hope it will be shut off soon.

It's not just Jacob Riis.. These lights are out up in different projects.. Saw them in Harlem and a friend saw them in two other projects
