Quality of Life & Public Safety:  Robberies and felony assaults have increased significantly in the past month in the 13th Precinct

Public Safety: Be a Good Neighbor. Help the Police Fight Crime with Building Video Surveillance Systems

In recent months, there have been a series of crimes around Gramercy Park including an attempted robbery at knifepoint on the south side, robbery at gunpoint on the west side, assaults on the north and east sides, and a scam operation a few days ago on the east side.

Although most Gramercy Park buildings have video surveillance systems, we are asking that you make sure your systems are operational, and technology is up to date.

To be a good neighbor, please make sure your building's surveillance system includes what the NYPD calls "eyes on the street." Cameras focused from the building out onto the sidewalks are the most valuable tool in identifying suspects and fighting crime. It is also helpful in case there is an accident or any other incident in front of your building.

After researching and exploring systems of several of our Gramercy Park buildings, we have learned a lot about this. If you'd like more information or a recommendation, please email me at or call me at 212-260-3875.
