    Was it on Java or India Street? This post says Java but the URL & twitter link say India.

    This is really shocking, disappointing and, well almost unbelievable, this is Greenpoint, not knife point.

    I think the key is vigilance and sharing this via twitter/fb etc to make as many of our community aware as we can.

    you have to wonder whether it’s connected to the newish men’s shelter at 400 McGuinness. The first feared repercussions?
