Residents at Moore Houses say an expensive program aimed to increase safety through the use of closed circuit cameras is burning a hole in taxpayers’ pockets.
Federal and local law enforcement have brought down a gang accused of terrorizing tenants of the Moore Houses on East 149th St. at the northern edge of St. Mary’s Park in Mott Haven.
Mayor Bloomberg came to National Night Out at St. Mary’s Park in Mott Haven on Aug. 7 to praise police from the 40th Precinct for their efforts to bring down local crime rates.
Neighborhood leadership takes many forms. From organizing farmers’ markets to advocating tenants’ rights, Mott Haven has many residents who work hard to make the their neighborhood a better place to live.
