711 East 51st, To-day
I hope Bill Baker and pals appreciate the effort it took for their robbers to dress like police officers. Y’know, people just don’t put that sort of thought into their robbery outfits anymore, and we at 47p applaud these lucre-lifting louts for respecting their prey enough to put on a good show. (As Larry has pointed out in a previous post, you didn’t need a black-and-white to pull off convincing cop masquerade.) Perhaps, post Hallowe’en, these gents still had a few days’ rental on the outfits and figured they’d put ‘em to good use…besides, 2g’s in 47, adjusted via the consumer price index, would equal $16,484 today…not bad for a night’s work.
