Stephen Levin is the New York City councilman from right here in beautiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn! I remember the fresh-faced, plucky young lad campaigning in the neighborhood just months ago. We Brooklynites show our appreciation to Levin by robbing him repeatedly.
A thief was caught breaking into Levin's office in downtown Brooklyn early Sunday morning, smashing a window and trying to steal his electronics. That was just the appetizer. The NY Post reports:
Levin was immediately notified of the burglary and left his Greenpoint apartment to head to his office — only to find that his car had been stolen.
Levin says the crimes are "coincidental," and he can just go right on thinking that as far as we're concerned.
