NYPD to Install Surveillance Camera Outside Hot 97

hot97logo.jpgIn response to last week’s shooting of Brooklyn rapper Gravy, the NYPD will install a camera outside the West Village studios of New York radio station Hot 97. “We’ll keep it in place until Hot 97 is evicted or cleans up its act,” a police source told New York’s Daily News. The camera, which bears the NYPD logo, is among the first in a $9 million plan to install 500 video cameras around the city. The cameras have zoom lenses and can be monitored in real time at remote locations. While most cameras will watch high-crime areas or potential terrorist targets, Hot 97’s studios are located in a generally safe neighborhood, meaning the camera’s intended to capture rapper-related violence. The Gravy shooting is the third case of gunfire to erupt outside the studio in the last five years. Hot 97’s landlord announced last week that they are beginning an eviction process.
