Not a street known for it murderous activity or any activity whatsoever.

This explains why Becket Street was cut off at Gallivan Boulevard at 7:15 last night.

If this person walked from the shooting to the Carney, JFC. Poor guy.

I grew up around the corner. I kind of know the area.

Van Winkle has about as much pedestrian traffic as the Beaconsfield T stop on a Sunday.
