How would someone rob that branch? The glass wall in front of each teller is more than an inch thick. The branch is consistently crowded.

Before the Chase was closed a few months ago, at 67 Avenue, they were robbed at least twice. With some many people on Queens Blvd. and 71st how is this so brazen.
