Less than five years ago this was probably one of the quietest stations in all of NYC. Now in less than one month we have a slashing, a stabbing and a shooting. We need a changing of the guard here since the Community Board and elected officials are asleep at the wheel.

Putting transit officers in the stations like they have in the past along with placing homeless shelters and prisons in other areas instead of residential areas. You know the way Mayors of yester-year have done.
