East Brooklyn residents are urged to join this week’s livestream discussion about Public Safety issues and solutions relating to increased violence on New York City subways and buses. In the most recent attack on the subway in East New York, a woman was stabbed in the back on the Pennsylvania Ave stop on the 3 line after bumping into a man by accident. The woman apologized but the man repeatedly stabbed her. The fear of riding the subways is real.
