In other news, NYPD continues to do nothing about the little gangsters on 79 and Roosevelt running lookouts from 8am till night. FYI they have expanded and now have lookouts on 78 and Roosevelt either near the tattoo shop or the 99 cent store across the street. They always have their phone ear piece in.
