Lovick was arrested at his home on Fulton St. the next day and charged with attempted murder.
He was held on $300,000 bail. He suggested to police that he didnâ€™t mean to shoot Giuliani and that the gun â€œwent offâ€ during the struggle, court papers say. Lovick has about a dozen arrests, police said, for charges including gun possession, robbery and grand larceny.
I love the area where Fulton meets Lafayette. Pequena, Havana Outpost, new bookstore & the G Train. Dekalb avenue has a lot of restaurants and bars, too. Also, the closer to the Atlantic Ave stop the better, since almost every subway in NY runs through that station.
As far as safety, This is how I feel: I wouldn't live on or near Myrtle Ave. There are bunch of shady projects up there.
However, From Fulton up to Dekalb or Willoughby, from Flatbush to Washington, is beautiful. It's like sesame street. Very diverse, safe, neighborhoodly, great shopping & restaurants, Amazing transportation, beautiful houses. I would have no problem with my sister or cousins walking home from the subway at night.
As you may know, in recent years, Fort Greene has undergone lots of changes and many of the newer residents middle to upper income homeowners. That having been said, even desireable areas such as Fort Greene are subject to crime. I would keep your eyes open for neighborhood news online. Try, outsidein.com, nyc.everyblock.com and gothamist.com to start.
As far as prime streets, depending on what you consider prime, I typically see a lot of interest in South Portland, South Oxford, Lafayette...all good choices.
