    Watch out if you go into any of the restaurants or stores on Roosevelt near the 52nd Street subway station – some of them do not have security cameras and they have crazies hanging out looking for people to rob.

    The perpetrator is black. He doesn’t look remotely Mexican.

    Well the thief certainly knows where to find the money. Our neighborhood is full of churches that pay no tax and yet receive every service from the city on our dime. All denominations, no discrimination, just look at the cars in the parking lots of our “religious institutions” If we tax churches and dogs we’ll be rich and prosperous.

    Obviously sunnyside is being targeted by certain people who find it an easy prey. I would hope that one of these bastards get into the wrong house and get shot in the nuts so they can be the easy prey down in rikers.

    Also, why are there ipads and computers left unattended in a church? How does this guy know where to find those devices? Is there some sort of information network where these animals share data and then send another animal like this guy out to do the pickup?

    With a clear picture like this, if NYPD does not catch this guy SHAME ON THEM.

    Isn’t there an app for making a confession via iPad?

    Speaking of churches, the Greek church on 48th ave and 44th has shut down. I believe some Korean denomination will be taking over the premises.

    The Greek church shut down? I am surprised. I thought that the priest had bought the building.

    Stores do have cameras around 52 street. Cops have actually asked the stores to point the cameras at the 52 street station to see if they can catch anything

    I never knew this website until recently and ive been living in Sunnyside for 10 years not knowing the details to things happening around me. When i saw this post i was shocked because i think this is the man who tries to rob my church in 45th street (korean presbyterian church) by walking in our front door not knowing that there was a man in the buliding. Not to be mean or racist but the man inside the church told him “there are no black people attending this church so can you get out” because the suspect made an excuse saying that he was looking for his brother. Im hoping that this person is arrested or is away from Sunnyside… churches are the biggest target for robbery;; God surely did not create man to be like this.
