In the News: Mugging at Greenwich and Harrison

••• “A woman was attacked by three teens wearing ski masks after she refused to give up her handbag, police said. The 21-year-old victim was walking along the corner of Harrison and Greenwich Streets at about 7:45 p.m. on Feb. 1.” —DNAinfo

Greg Grossman••• There’s a new restaurant, Lazy Point, in the Anchor Bar space at 310 Spring. “Cocktails get higher billing than the food, which is mostly small plates created by Greg Grossman [left], 19, a consultant,” says the New York Times. In other words, it’s the restaurant-masquerading-as-a-bar that had been planned for 27 Desbrosses, before Sandy hit. Amazingly, it’s the third Long Island–influenced establishment opening in the area this season.

  1. The police need to patrol Tribeca a lot more. Criminals have become much bolder, especially given the absence of police presence in this neighborhood.

  2. We need more police patrols in this neighborhood.

    • Yes, yes yes. Have not seen police in this area for a while. Perhaps stop, question and frisk was working. Shame on Deblasio.

  3. Theft is up. Just look at all the bike “skeletons” (frames & tires) that remain chained around the neighborhood.

  4. Lots more ‘street art’ as well. This admin is resembling Dinkens’ in that way. Hopefully we end up with more tennis courts again, but that’s likely the best we can hope for.
