Also, Roosevelt Island resident Francine Lange reported today:
I want to post a warning for folks walking alone to the Tram in Manhattan at night. Last night, I was walking on the south side of 60th St. toward Second Ave. and got attacked by a homeless guy sitting near one of the closed stores. No comment. After I passed him, he ran up behind me and kicked me. I did call 911 and the NYPD came quickly but didn't arrest him because I was not hurt. Please be careful - this guy apparently hangs out near the Tram.
