New York Daily News 1970s New York City: The dangerous & gritty streets during a decade of decline Gritty New York City in the 1970s With pimps and prostitutes populating the streets, an economic collapse and a crime filled subway system, the streets of Manhattan in the 1970s were a gritty and dark place.
Cops will be looking to wake up snoozing subway riders a€” all in the name of their own safety a€” as the NYPD battles soaring crime concerns on the rails, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said Wednesday. People who sleep on the subway are more at risk of becoming victims of sexual assault and pickpocketing, Bratton explained.
Some straphangers feared the no-sleep for the subway initiative was simply a new version of stop-and-frisk. Bulaa€™s son Anthony Atkinson, 29, lost $400 on the train when a thief cut open his pants pocket as he slept on an A train, but still wouldna€™t want a cop to shake him from his slumber a€” even if it could save him from becoming a victim. On Wednesday night, Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa opened his show with the ditty a€” then went on to bash Bratton for being out of touch with everyday train riders.
Cops will be using their discretion when waking riders and remind them that they should better secure their property and surroundings, a police source with knowledge of the new directive said.
Cops will also be waking commuters a€?as non-confrontationally as possible,a€? the source said. According to MTA rules, it is not illegal to sleep on the subway unless someone is taking up more than one seat, interferes with train operation or disrupts another passenger's comfort.
Cops used a similar tactic to combat a spike in subway crime in March 2012, with transit officers on the midnight tour going car-to-car and waking sleeping passengers before a€?subway creepersa€? could cut open their pockets and take their valuables.
Police think hea€™s the same man who tried to rob a straphanger on a northbound C train in Harlem Sunday night.
Cops are well within their rights to wake up rail users, according to Eugene Oa€™Donnell, a former cop who is now a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The NYPD said it has seen a 36% increase in crime on the rails in January a€” from 151 in 2015 to 206.

The uptick in crimes includes a 32% jump in grand larcenies, which include the pickpocketing of high-priced electronics like cellphones. There was also a major uptick in assaults brought on by a rash of slashings and stabbings from 12 in January 2015 to 37 last month, officials said. The jump in crime was in sharp contrast to citywide crime, which saw a 10% drop overall and a 45% drop in murders in January, officials said. Gene Russianoff, attorney for the Straphangers Campaign, said Brattona€™s anti-snooze plan would only have a€?a very modest effecta€? on fighting crime. The Patrolmena€™s Benevolent Association, the citya€™s largest police union, balked at the plan.

Urena Morel Frankellym (pictured), 23, was verbally and physically attacked on a Manhattan subway by 5 women and 1 man as fellow travelers stood by and did absolutely nothing, reports the NY Daily News.
Frankellym and his partner were eating when a female passenger began snapping pictures of them. An argument erupted, and the two women, joined by three others plus a man, attacked Frankelly, police said.
The pair managed to get off the train at the next stop, West 96th St., and police were called. The couple has been interviewed by the Hate Crime Task Force, but no arrests have been made at this time. An unruly rider got into a clash with a 25-year-old man and 27-year-old woman on the F train, and threatened them with a glass bottle, police said.
Two subway conductors were assaulted in Brooklyn and Manhattan on Tuesday following a spate of attacks on three motormen over the weekend, officials said.

When an L train was at the Broadway Junction station in Brooklyn, two riders got off and attacked a conductor with a water bottle and coffee cup, according to transit documents.
The MTA said the conductor was given medical attention, but not hospitalized.Service was disrupted on three trains due to the assault. Three train operators were attacked by riders within three hours on Saturday -- including a J train motorman punched in the face and a G train motorman that was spat on. On Friday, an unruly rider got into a clash with a man, 25, and woman, 27, on the F train, and threatened them with a glass bottle. He then then broke the conductor's window by smashing the bottle into it.Cops said that assailant, pictured, is 5-foot-10.
He tried to restrain the crook but got a punch in the face before the assailant ran out of the 51st St.
After he asked why she was taking the pictures, the situation swiftly escalated from homophobic slurs to physical violence.
A 37-year-old man sleeping on a northbound 4 train awoke to a tug on his pants and found another man looming over him, razor blade in hand. Subway riders frequently experienced many unsafe conditions, including constant mechanical issues.
