Security Checkpoint on Delancey

Posted on: August 23rd, 2011 at 6:18 am by

In case you were curious about the excessive honking on Delancey last night at around 11 pm, it wasn’t just ordinary New York City road rage. Rather, it was much ado about security.  The eastbound lanes were completely backed up, reportedly due to a checkpoint established by the NYPD.  A dozen or so police vehicles were parked near the Williamsburg Bridge approach at Suffolk Street, with cops sidelining motorists at random for inspection.

All the “tertiary” offshoot streets were clogged as well.
