One thought on “Police Watch: Men arrested for separate robberies at Albano Playground, Second Ave.

  1. Ah, the beautiful Albano Playground. Supposedly, designated exclusively for use by “children and their caregivers.” Instead, however, like every other public park/playground in NYC, it is overrun with vermin (both 2- and 4-legged) 24/7. For those with short memories, Vincent Albano was a Republican Party Clubhouse Boss, and ‘King of STPCV’ in the Fifties and Sixties. Every week, he got featured/pictured on the front page of T&V, since Hagedorn Sr. considered all Democrats–even back then–“Communists.”
    Good riddance to Albano; a playground should never have been named after that thug.
