Guard Tower at Campos Plaza
The placement of this tower at Campos Plaza was brought to our attention by http://www.evgrieve.com/ . A guard tower usually reminds of a prison yard with inmates , yet here one stands , 24/7 , in the commons area of a NYC housing project .We've been to this commons area at Campos Plaza several times to cover stories such as :
According to police dept. personnel this tower is a deterrent . Indeed we were told that the commons area has been clear of gang activity since the tower has been in place . But the tower will only be at Campos for a total of 30 days .Then the tower will be relocated to another project for another 30 days for the same purpose , as a deterrent .
Just a couple of weeks before the tower was put in place at Campos , a slashing occurred not far from where this tower now stands.
@Bob Arihood: Ha ha ha! I have to go to YouTube now and watch some F Troop, one of my favorite shows as a kid. Along with Hogan's Heroes. Who knew Nazi war camps were so much fun? Hooogan!Post a Comment
