For those keeping score at home: the West Village crime spree appears to be over, an East Village iPhone jacker was chased down by patrons and an owner at Mama's Bar, and the Central Park West/Manhattan Valley terorrizers are still on the loose. Do these isolated incidents have a larger meaning? One West 101st Street residents tell the Post: "I will not walk by myself near the park after dark. It makes me sick to hear this. It seems foreboding - like this will be another downturn in New York." [Gothamist, NYP]
