there are several motels and hotels located in walking distance to this gas station (look across the street where a woman was kidnapped and the men force her into prostitution) most of these places are slowly being turned into shelters without the public even knowing about it. I would not be surprised if this person will be found in these places. And the mayor wants to close rikers island and bring the criminals closer to our homes. Vote him out next year.

Wrong picture of the BP. That’s the one by the BQE that was demolished and is currently under reconstruction.

They didn’t demolish the store part as that was recently remodeled. They’re replacing the fuel tanks.

@Anonymous when exactly was any district in NYC ever crime free? Why are you so hung up on what sounds like a petty theft? If this is all you got to go up against JVB you’re not going to get very far. You sound like a complete tool, an imbecile.

Little petty thefts lead to bigger crimes in most neighborhoods! I am sure if it was you, your loved ones or your business that was robbed you might relate to peoples concerns a little differently.
