    I just don’t understand where are the police are? It seems like every week it is the same areas being hit with crime. I hardly see any cops out on the streets at night let alone the daytime.
    They should be patrolling the areas more often.

    Exactly, @mtc!

    The theft of loose change from parked cars is OUT OF CONTROL!! We need the National Guard called in pronto!!!

    I mean, @mtc’s eagle-eyed observations about the prevalence of police patrols should have us all quaking in fear and locking ourselves in our houses!!!!

Sad. Let's hope that this is not its "Last Tango." One of the most beautiful and iconic buildings in town. Valentino, Garbo, Keaton must have played there.
