The Day | More on the East 7th Suspect

LookingUpRachel Wise

Good morning, East Village.

Reporting by dnainfo on the arrest of Jairo Pastoressa as a suspect in the East 7th Street stabbing describes him as an assistant to well-known East Village muralist Antonio “Chico” Garcia. A video, “Termanology-Circulate,” posted on several websites including YouTube is described as a video showing Pastoressa working on a painting with Garcia.

Turning to robberies, EV Grieve has a story on a police command post established near Tompkins Square Park, apparently in a response to a recent spike in muggings.

Finally, knowing what it’s like to be editors, we sympathize with the author of this MTA poster whose grammatical error is posted up and down Second Avenue and reproduced here by Bowery Boogie.
