The thief seems to have been quite confident. The location of the bank is about one street over from Police Hdqrs and only a few blocks from the usual police hangouts; in back of St. Paul's and at various parking lots. Does a black man, moving on 7th, street, not stand out. How did he get away? Walk? Run? Car?

I understand that crime is up on Long Island. But as a Garden City resident is anyone concerned that there were 14 burglaries in the past 2 1/2 months alone in Garden a City?
