The Daily News


Two recent articles in the Daily News caught my eye. The first, about gang violence, includes this quote from Brookyn DA Charles Hynes about the Red Hook Community Justice Center: “That court helped transform Red Hook from a place you wouldn’t enter without the 3rd Marines into one of the five safest neighborhoods in New York.”

The second, an op-ed about violence in Brownsville, cites our research into community attitudes about crime and highlights the efforts we are making to address gun violence in Crown Heights.
