The NYPD continues to expand its presence in Tompkins Square Park following the Post and the Observer's recent reports citing anecdotal evidence that there's an influx of homeless people and drug users in the park.
This afternoon, the NYPD brought in a patrol tower (SkyWatch) to sit right in the middle of the park.
