    Seconded. It’s gross incompetence that NYPD allows this to happen. It will lead to a death and massive lawsuit because they allowed it to fester. We don’t have to live this way.

    The Drug Dealing from WSQ Park and West 4th St Station between 8th & Waverley Pl is fueling the increasing Crime in GV. Attracting Sketchy people to the Neighborhood. Almost every day someone is assaulted or robbed near the W 4th Street Station. The Police are not arresting the addicts shooting up or smoking crack now extending to 9th & 10th st between 5th & 6th Aves….amazing! You see human waste all over the neighborhood disgusting & a health risk. Police…Please stop the Daily Flow of Drugs into the Park. Every morning between 7 & 8 AM DRUGS arrive by couriers on bikes, scooters or small motorcycles…it is so obvious they make a beeline to the Holley monument for the Zombies making their trek to the park early morning. Then the couriers go to 6th Ave where dealers openly show wads of $$$ to purchase the resupply. PLEASE HELP!!!
