Dumbo's Drug Supply Drying Up?

The crowd that hangs out in front of Washington Street deli Peas & Pickles has long been a sore subject for Dumbo residents old and new. But now, according to a commenter on this morning's Dock Street renderings post, the scene may be changing: "The pair in front of peas n pickles is either working with NYPD, or under NYPD surveillance. 'A friend' gave him a buck the other day, and two blocks away got approached by plain clothes NYPD detectives, who searched for drugs, and claimed to have witnessed my purchase. Luckily they didn't find anything, but sucks that they're getting shut down. They are my favorite part of dumbo. It's one-stop shopping!" ['Dumbo's Dock Street, G-Rated Version']
