First this mornings email from a reader:
Was wondering if you’ve been able to find any info on the shooting around 4am last night on Greenpoint Ave near Manhattan (assuming it’s Club Exit). Around that time, I was woken up by a string of gunshots, screaming, and people running. Haven’t had any luck finding news about it yet.
wow! i get to be the first one to post about this one too!
okay so last night i had locked myself out of my apartment and at around one or so i was walking back from my friends house with her copy of my keys. i noticed that there were a lot of sort of thugged out dudes and women wearing, like, just a strip of leather across their boobs. walking up and down the street, and i just remember thinking, oh good, i have a set of keys now and don’t have to be stuck out here. “crazy club exit”….
but then at 3 i was lying in bed half asleep and i heard a series of three loud shots, followed by screaming and general noise. i saw a few heads looking out of windows, and i looked outside too, but made eye contact with some scary looking dude and quickly shut the window again. no cops were showing up, and i was PRETTY sure it had been gunfire i’d heard, so i called the cops. i don’t know if they ever showed up or what, i fell asleep.
at 4 or so (i think) i heard another shot. more screaming. and this time the cops showed up immediately. lots of yelling. i was trying to sleep, because i have to work early today… so it’s sort of like it was a dream. i’d like to know if anyone knows what happened. this club is totally out of control. obviously.
No word on anyone being shot or hurt, but gunfire twice in six months at this club is a little ridiculous. I know it’s not really Club Exit’s fault that the entertainment they book brings with it a gun-toting type of clientele but something needs to really be done before someone gets killed at this joint.
Ya know, a bunch of people won’t shut up or stop bitching about Studio B and it’s construction and licensing issues. They’re all up in arms over the loud, litter-producing hipsters that spill out of the place (oh the horror!), but here is a club where the cops REALLY need to be, for safety reasons and of course that’s just not nearly as important as whether Studio B’s cabaret license is up to date.
Has anyone heard anything else about this shooting?
