The Day | Shooting Adds to a Trying Week

Good morning, East Village.

We start today with a glance below Houston where a report by Bowery Boogie of three people injured in a shooting on Stanton Street adds to the week’s bad news, although the injuries are described as “non-life-threatening.” The New York Times called the location of the incident, “a corner where luxury developments and turn-of-the-century tenements meet.”

The Daily News briefly covers the arraignment of Jairo Pastoressa, the 25 year old accused of fatally stabbing Christopher Jusko in an East 7th Street apartment building on Monday morning.

The mobile police command center established near Tompkins Square Park seems to have been busy already. EV Grieve has a tip that police appeared “in numbers” to arrest an alleged cellphone snatcher yesterday evening.

Our last word today – you can’t keep a good blogger down. Brooks of Sheffield announced in June. “I am ending Lost City. Most of the City is lost after all—the good parts, anyway—so you could say the course of history has put me out of a job.” But there was a stray post here and there, and then the stray posts kept coming – six in October. Lost City is a great citywide history source, and we hope Brooks keeps adding to it.
