A possibly fatal stabbing on the north side of Stanton St. between Attorney and Ridge on the Lower East Side of Manhattan may have cost the life of a male victim. It’s unclear if he survived after sustaining multiple stab wounds.
The incident took place at approximately 3:30 am and the constant sound of a police helicopter with it’s search lights on full blast looking for the perpetrator(s) could be heard for almost an hour in the surrounding neighborhood.
It’s unclear what precipitated the attack or if any suspect is now in custody. Ofc. Allen of the NYPD remarked: “I don’t think he’s going to make it”
The attack happened in the exact same block where 3 people were shot last fall (2010).

As part of his EYEBEAM residency in NYC, Aram Bartholl created “Dead Drops,” an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space where USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space.
This is an interesting project that is the intersection of street art and technology, using public space as a way to communicate in a specific way with others.
Bartholl goes on to say “Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation. If you want to install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures.”
TRENTON — New Jersey’s governor is expected to take at least another day before announcing whether the nation’s largest public works project will continue or die.
Gov. Chris Christie is considering whether to restart a Hudson River rail tunnel project that he killed because of escalating costs. However, the nation’s transportation secretary pressed Christie to reconsider.
The governor objects to the state being on the hook for potential cost overruns and wants someone else to help pick up the tab. The federal government and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are each contributing $3 billion.
New Jersey’s share is $2.7 billion plus the overruns. If Christie kills the project, he could use some of the money to replenish the state’s broke Transportation Trust Fund.
