A retractable 20-foot-tall watchtower originally designed to help with border protection and then adapted for use during parades in NYC, is now increasingly making its way into various neighborhoods like Crown Heights, Harlem, and even into a relatively low crime area in DUMBO back in March. Now, a new Sky Watch has popped up on Graham Avenue and Moore Street in the Bushwickish section of Williamsburg to keep a watchful eye on criminals and law abiders alike. According to one of the flatfoots on the ground, there’s been a recent rash of robberies in the area and it will be a permanent fixture throughout the summer.
