Stabbing at Fulton Mall

Police are at 374 Fulton Street, near Smith Street, where a person has reportedly been stabbed. A suspect is in custody, and units are searching the storm drains for a possible weapon. No word on the victim’s condition.

    No surprise to me. The last time I was at that godforsaken dump; the police sealed the entire place off while they “searched for suspects” in an armed robbery. Of course that meant we were trapped inside with some armed robbers running amok… Needless to say I shan’t return.

    I keep reading about how the Fulton Mall faces a more upscale future – with the Shake Shack, H&M, a possible Apple Store at some point – but it seems like it has a long ways to go. Worse than Fulton Street itself are a lot of the nearby side streets. I remember walking down Hoyt (?) recently and encountering a half-eaten box of fried chicken scattered across the sidewalk.

    Fulton Mall is what it is. It is not changing any time soon because the businesses that are there are making good money.
    I do find it a shame that the upper floors of most of the buildings there are vacant. Especially with housing in short supply.

    Sorry I just realized I was referring to the Albee Square Mall, not the whole Fulton Mall… Although, the description of “godforsaken dump” does apply to the whole.

    Wow, Eddy, you really haven’t been back in a while – the Albee Square mall was torn down completely in 2007!

    the entire place is a dump! where are the cops when you need them.

    Babs, LOL your right, I completely forgot… and yes I haven’t been down that way in many years. The incident I mentioned happened in the late 90’s. Macy’s is as far as I walk up fulton…

    Did you feel unsafe around the fried chicken?

    There’s a good reason to go beyond Macy’s now – the Dekalb Market, on part of the Albee Square Mall site – it’s a collection of shipping containers that have been converted into mini-stores, featuring local merchants and food shops, including Robicelli’s cupcakes! There are picnic tables and free wifi – it’s a great place to hang out. It’s actually on the Flatbush Ave Extension, just by one of the entrances to the Dekalb Ave subway stop (so if you really want to avoid Fulton St. you can just take the R train from Court St.)
