Day 475

Road closed

April 18th, 2013

Just a few days after the Boston Marathon bombings, paranoia is running high. Someone called 911 to report a "suspicious package" at the intersection of Farragut Road and East 105th Street. In Canarsie. On the corner of a vacant lot. The cop did a serviceable job of sounding serious when he told me that's why I couldn't pass through. "Hey, if someone calls 911, we can't just kick it into the gutter", he said with a smile. I had to circle back around later in the day, after the bomb scare was over, to pick up this block.

    Matt, sounds like you did better with this guy than the line of recruits on motorcycles a while back. Maybe word to be wary hadn’t filtered to this guy yet.
