Flatiron BID Speaker Series to Feature NYPD Captain Brendan Timoney
In the latest installment of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership’s Speaker Series, Captain Brendan Timoney, Commanding Officer of the New York City Police Department’s 13th Precinct will discuss law enforcement in the Flatiron District, Chelsea and Gramercy neighborhoods, with a focus on how the NYPD meets the safety and security needs of the community. The free event, to be held at 950 Broadway, will draw local businesses as well as residents and is an excellent networking opportunity. The event, originally scheduled for May 8th, has been postponed, as Timoney will be attending the funeral of recently-slain officer Brian Moore on that day. The Flatiron BID will announce a new date shortly.
Flatiron residents and business representatives may recall 13th District Commander David Ehrenberg’s informative speech on a similar topic at last year’s Flatiron Speaker event. It will be interesting to see how safety and security issues have evolved in the 13th Precinct since 2014, as well as what new law enforcement efforts are underway. Perhaps Captain Timoney will give us some idea, directly or indirectly, of how he plans to make his mark on the 13th Precinct and how he plans to approach the job.
