Stabbing at The Metropolitan

2/11/2008 10:31:00 AM
Well this is rather depressing. The Metropolitan was one of the candidates of where I was considering moving this upcoming fall. I suppose crime is everywhere, so I shouldn't be surprised.

A 27-year-old man was stabbed to death yesterday in a gleaming 3-year-old Chinatown high-rise residential building, police said.

Officer James Kenneally, a department spokesman, said Chambers was arrested soon after the killing in the vicinity of the crime scene, but he would not elaborate. Investigators believe Chambers and the victim knew each other, said a person familiar with the investigation.

Well I guess it's slightly more reassuring that the suspect and victim knew eachother - at least that means there's no random acts of violence springing up in that building. The doorman can't keep danger out if you invite it into your home.

I find it slightly amusing that the Metro described the Metropolitan as a "building filled with pricey condominiums and penthouses." How can a building be filled with penthouses? That makes no sense.

    Sounds like one homeless guy stabbed another homeless guy in an apartment at which both were guests. My question is why is anyone inviting a bunch of homeless people up into their room at the ritzy Metropolitan. Seems sketchy...
