While the Cat Was Away…

…a punk being chased by our friendly neighborhood gang members broke into our apartment.

Well folks…it looks like living on the corner of Gentrification and Ghetto has finally caught up to us….

After a gruellingly long flight to JFK last night I turned my phone back on and it exploded with texts and missed calls. The first one I heard was from my coworker and friend Michelle telling me that my house had been broken into, but everything was ok – nothing was taken and they caught the guy. They saw her number on the fridge and called her. Luckily she only lives two blocks away (maybe that’s unlucky for her given the new crime statistics for the neighborhood). She came and helped to “secure the domicile,” along with our neighbor Andrew who snapped this picture in a moment of sheer photographic genius.


According to the voice mail from the officer, turns out he wasn’t a burglar…just a gang member being chased by other gang members.

I don’t know if I feel better or worse.
