I'll be there for you?

A man, described in media reports as a homeless ex-convict, was caught with a brick in the backyard of the home linked to David Schwimmer on Sixth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

Per the News:

Police caught Eric Rosa, 29, lurking in the backyard of the actor’s E. Sixth Street home near First Ave. about 12:30 a.m., allegedly trying to break in with the brick.

It's not entirely clear if the actor still lives in this townhouse. The Post reported in 2017 that Schwimmer was house-hunting elsewhere in the neighborhood following the split from his wife.

I wonder how that person got into the back yard. My apt is near that backyard, and I believe the only way to get on that side of the row/block of buildings is by scaling down a fire escape from on of the neighboring buildings??

I am nowhere near that block, but 2 weeks ago a guy broke into a rooftop apartment of a brownstone on my block; fortunately police arrested the guy, but the question then was the same: how did he get onto the roof? Could be via fire escapes in adjacent buildings, etc.

Bottom line: Don't get complacent, people. In fact, the more you paid for your place, the more likely someone is to decide you have something worth stealing inside.
