Police Tower Now on Nostrand


Biking down Nostrand Avenue on Monday, we couldn't help but notice the police surveillance tower that had been set up at the corner of Lexington Avenue. A tweet from @FreshDotDaily yesterday reminded us that we'd snapped a photo. (The official name for the tower is Sky Watch. It was set up in Dumbo last year.) Anyone know when this was set up or why? Was there a particular incident recently that might have caused NYPD to take it up a notch on this corner?
