BRONX NEWS: Two people found dead floating in waters in NYC


Police are investigating the deaths of two people found floating dead in the waters around the city hours apart, police said on Sunday.


The NYPD’s Harbor Unit found a woman in her 30s drifting in the Spuyten Duyvil Creek, which runs between Manhattan and the Bronx, near W. 225th St. and Adrian Ave. at about 11:40 p.m. Saturday, police said.


She was taken to the Peter Jay Sharp Boat House in Washington Heights, but paramedics were unable to revive her.


Earlier that day, the body of a man believed to have leapt from a bridge earlier this month was found floating in the Ambrose Channel off of Breezy Point, Queens.


A small boat navigating the shipping channel spotted him at about 3:30 p.m., police said.


The unidentified man, who had two tattoos on his forearms, was wearing a black shirt and black shorts when he was lifted from the water and at the Kingsborough College Pier in Manhattan Beach.


The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death in both cases.

BRONX NEWS: CARIBBEAT: Broad push for J’Ouvert safety


It’s been a long, hard year for family and friends of Carey Gabay, the son of Jamaican immigrants who went to enjoy Brooklyn’s 2015 predawn J’Ouvert Caribbean parade and was fatally shot in a gun battle between rival gangs.


And Gabay – a high-ranking aide to Gov. Cuomo who embraced his Caribbean culture – has also been on the minds of the city officials and police brass, who last week announced #WeAreJOuvert, a comprehensive, multi-agency initiative to keep revelers and area residents safe during the annual procession, which winds through Crown Heights and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.


“We owe it to Carey Gabay, his loved ones, and all Caribbean New Yorkers to celebrate our rich heritage safely,” said Community Affairs Unit Commissioner Marco Carrión Carrión of the mayor’s office. “I want to thank (Brooklyn) Borough President (Eric) Adams for leading the #WeAreJOuvert campaign so that we may put forth a message of peace collectively. I look forward to working with him and all of our partners to make this year’s celebration one the entire family can enjoy.”



Yvette Rennie, president of J’Ouvert City International, which presents the popular Labor Day weekend event, was joined by Adams, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and a number of elected officials, who’ve worked hard to prevent the cultural event from being marred by gang violence and other crimes.


The #WeAreJOuvert campaign includes installing 200 light towers along the route of the parade and doubling last year’s NYPD deployment – and placing 2,000 officers on patrol at the event.
