-neighbor Do a little fact checking lazy, you’re already on a computer. The closest subway stop to the old Pan American Hotel is the Grand Acenue Queens Blvd. stop the hotels address is 79-00 Queens Blvd. Elmhurst. According to google maps the old pan American is well over a mile from the scene of the incident. You sound as stupid as Irish Lassy.


Isn’t that the stop for the panama hotel?! Which is now a homeless shelter?!?! Check there it’s a walk to queens blvd but that’s the stop and from what I see he is walking to queens blvd.

oohh ohh oohh jamies cryin!

a few days ago SSP reported that 108 pct crime dropped like 50% in March/ April, now it looks like crime is back in full force, what happened in March qnd April that would keep these thugs home on the couch? could it be march madness?

This is awful. I think this is in the 114th not the 108th precinct but I could be wrong.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
