Residents of Dumbo are worried that a plan to move a New York Police Department Brooklyn property clerk’s office from
Downtown Brooklyn into their neighborhood would bring convicts who pick up their belongings to the new Dock Street development that includes an 18-story condominium tower and  new middle school, the New York Daily News reported. While the current property
office is located within the 84th Precinct at 301 Gold Street,
the new location, at 11 Front Street in a former police garage, would have less protection,
community member say. Community Board 2 district manager Rob Perris
also pointed out that the area is a tourist attraction thanks
to the new Brooklyn Bridge Park opening nearby. The NYPD selected the new location due to its proximity to the Brooklyn courts. City
Council member Steve Levin said he will try to stop the move because the
community was not consulted ahead of time. [NYDN]
