Being Interviewed on the TV News

One day in 1996 I was walking from my house toward the Flushing subway station and passed by the 109th Police Precinct.  A reporter from NY1 news, Kristen Shaugnessy stopped me and interviewed me about stolen cars in Flushing.  I said that this area was a good target for thieves since it was right off the highway so the stolen car could be driven away easily.  I also mentioned that I keep my car in a garage since I use it exclusively on weekends.  I was a little nervous, but I think I did OK.  I did not sing the Car 54 Theme Song :)  I do have a tape of my interview, but I haven't looked at it in years.  One acquaintance of mine saw the story on TV.

I bring this up today since I saw a NY1 news van at that same spot by the precinct.  I think they were doing a story about a woman who abandoned her new born baby.
