The Day | An Alert for Delivery Workers

Phillip Kalantzis Cope

Good morning, East Village.

As if dodging traffic and occasionally getting stiffed weren’t enough of a hazard, now East Village delivery workers have to also worry about getting mugged. According to NY1, police are hunting for three men suspected of robbing delivery workers in the East Village in two separate incidents.  Both robberies took place on the 13th floor of 108 Avenue D and in each case the workers were caught off guard by the man who approached them, then were struck and wrestled to the ground.

Community Board 3’s May agenda is now available. The board will hear pleas from no fewer than 29 establishments seeking liquor licenses —more than a few located on Avenue B.

The board will also hear a proposal for landmark protections of two East Village study areas. According to NearSay, the Landmarks Preservation Commission recently revealed that areas on Tompkins Square North and Second Avenue have already passed preliminary considerations and have been scheduled for a public hearing before Community Board 3’s Landmark Subcommittee on May 12.
