More bad news out of Greenpoint: a bodega at 560 Morgan Avenue was robbed last night at 11:10 p.m., according to the police. Two men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered the Mini-Mart at the corner of Morgan and Driggs, displayed a firearm and took off with about $700, the police said. No one was hurt, but the suspects are still at large.
Last night’s incident was the latest in what has become a significant number of crimes, some violent, in the normally tranquil neighborhood. Next Tuesday, the Greenpoint Neighborhood Watch will meet to discuss the spike with local police officers.
