October 23, 2013- DNAinfo is reporting that a 50-year old homeless man stabbed a man at 212 North End Avenue, which is the front entrance to Asphalt Green and a high-rent apartment building. However, no one at Asphalt Green was even aware that the crime took place.
The article states, “A man was stabbed four times with a pair of scissors as he walked through Battery Park City at 3:45 a.m. last week, police said. The 33-year-old Staten Island man was jabbed in his back, chest and both arms after encountering a homeless man near 212 North End Ave. last Thursday, according to police reports. The cuts were deep, but not life-threatening, police said.”
The homeless man could have been coming from Teadrop Park across the street. Increases in crime have been a topic of discussion and a new PEP office was opened nearby. However, the auxiliary PEP office on North End Avenue closes at 7:00 PM.

On a related note, I witnessed a teenager snatch an iphone from someone and make a run for it at the BPC ballfields a few weeks ago. There are some very fast adults, one of whom was the Downtown Soccer President, who caught up to and grabbed the culprit and pulled him by force out of view from my window. Was surprised I didn’t see anything on this in local news.
Was it Bill Bialosky?
Yes, Bill B.. Very fast guy. Saw the whole thing. He caught up to the teen in a flash.
To Bill, if you are watching, I challenge you to a sprint between too old ex-athletes from the Midwest
Ok, I will take the challenge.
