Sunset Park People in the News

Our library, and its Young Adult Librarian, are highlighted in The Daily News.

A Swiss choreographer and sometime Sunset resident gets some NY Metro attention prior to his weekend presentation.

And to save the scrolling down the Crime Page, here is our pride and joy, spotlighted in The NY Post's NYPD Blotter:


Two men allegedly wrecked a Sunset Park grocery store because they though the price of beer was too high. Digenes Perez, 30, and Hugo Roses, 28, argued with employees over the prices at the shop on Fifth Avenue at 39th Street Sunday night. They allegedly flipped over display cases and struck one of the employees with a beer bottle. They were arrested for assault, menacing and harassment.

I doubt the price was anywhere near the recent WNYC Brian Lehrer findings for a 6-Pack of Budweiser. $13 at Garden of Eden? The Sunset Park results ran about $5.59, give or take 10 cents.
