In the recent months, it wasn't evident anything significant happened on this corner. There are many corners in Bed-Stuy like this. Few get similar attention, if any. Most are unmarked.
This summer, one spot on my street had a prayer candle out for a few nights after the shooting and a NYPD flyer promising a reward for information for a day before wind blew it away. It wasn't replaced. The scene returned to be just a public sidewalk.
There weren't as many flowers out here yesterday. That a cop was shot in Philly a day before dredged memories of the two NYPD officers who died in a similar attack at this corner, Thompkins at Myrtle, last December. I think that prompted the placement of fresh bouquets.
