Our Clean Team and Public Safety Officers (PSOs) are working outside in the neighborhood seven days a week, supporting our organization's mission to keep Lincoln Square clean and safe. Daily, our PSOs report issues to 311 or 911, assist the public with information, and more, while our Clean Team sweeps the sidewalks, empties trash bins, sweeps ponded water from crosswalks, and more.
Last week, a 13-year veteran officer of our Public Safety Team observed an act of vandalism being carried out near the Columbus Circle Subway Station. Our officer's quick thinking led to a prompt arrest after he alerted officers from NYPD's Transit District 1 (located inside the 59th Street Columbus Circle train station) about the crime in progress. Earlier this week, a Clean Team member stopped his cleaning routine to help an elderly woman navigate the crosswalk at Broadway and 62nd Street. We appreciate our long-standing team members' dedication to helping us make Lincoln Square--a great neighborhood--even better.
