Today’s news:


After receiving a generous donation from a concerned Morris Park resident, the 49th Precinct is developing yet another tool in its ongoing crackdown on graffiti vandalism.

Thanks to a $1,000 contribution from Joseph McManus, chairman of the Land Use Committee of Community Board 11, local officers will have enough funds to purchase sophisticated graffiti-removal equipment and team up with business owners in the district to rid the area of the mess one gate and wall at a time.

Community Affairs Police Officer Vic DiPierro said he is delighted to be able to purchase the anti-graffiti gear with the guidance of William Pedone, owner of Van Nest True Value Hardware and a leader of the new Morris Park Merchants Association.
