Increased NYPD Presence in Response to Recent Thefts


A neighbor wrote this week to ask us about the increased nighttime police presence around the Pavilion Theatre, and on 7th Avenue. Although our phone call to the 78th Precinct has not yet been returned, a patrolman spotted on 5th Avenue and 11th Street let us know that, given the holiday season and recent neighborhood robberies, it’s all precautionary.

We’ll keep you posted on any new information we receive.

  1. huh, so, if the police believe that their foot patrols help prevent crime from happening in the first place why don’t they employ this tactic all year long? guess that would take all the fun out of being the reactive force they have come to be.
