NYPD Chief Offers Press Center in Lieu of Cop ShackS

Yesterday we reported that the NYPD was booting the New York media out of One Police Plaza. Last night, commissioner Ray Kelly relented, telling papers they can have a filing center in the building.

Newspapers will still have to be out of their current space at headquarters by July 31, but will be able to use the press room—usually reserved for press conferences and meetings—as a filing center. The NYPD will try to have permanent office space for reporters within two years, as opposed to the 2013 date floated in Kelly's earlier memo.
