  1. I wonder if this is the same person that every so often has also been firing his gun on or around Avenue X between East 2nd & East 3rd. Every so often we’ve her a gun being fired in this area but it stops in a few minutes and is usually late at night. At first I thought it was fireworks but my sister and a neighbor who lives on East 2nd have also heard it too.

  2. 12th ave and 66 st. is not considered dyker heights, but i wouldn’t say they are lower class robert

  3. 66th and 12th is definitely Dyker Heights. Dyker runs the length of 14th from the shore to 61st, then up to 9th, back over to 65th, then along the BQE to 86th, then along 7th to the Fort.

    And definitely not lower class.

  4. I was being facetious, of course they are not lower class people. Just describing in a comedic way the difference in real estate and house hold income from homes in the upper 80’s compared to 60’s.
