A landmarked police station building in Sunset Park, Brooklyn has become a magnet for crime in the neighborhood. Cops moved out in 1970 after opening a new station house on 29th Street, and the deteriorating landmark now attracts unsavory characters, cockroaches, and building violations. One neighbor said, "It's a beautiful building that's falling apart. I just want to see it put back to use. I don’t want to see it fall down." [DNAinfo]
