    This is just steps from my condo, as well as right in the same alley as The Dabney and The Columbia Room. Though I’m thrilled at the development in Blagden Alley, we all need to realize that it’s still an alley, and that you shouldn’t walk it (or any other alley!) late at night by yourself. I hope the victim is OK, and that the cops catch the bastard who assaulted the victim. PS: .I’m not at all happy about the fact that the police did not send out an alert to local residents, and that we first hear about it days later via Popville. (Though I truly appreciate you Dan for spreading the news…)
