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.
