Muggers to start targeting Gryson bags in Fort Greene?

No longer the sanctum of the "non-for-profit sector" (see 2:26PM comment) workers who found Fort Greene to once be very liveable and affordable, this Brooklyn Eagle crime blotter listing proves it.

To quote, "An purse-snatcher grabbed a woman’s handbag as she was heading home early on Feb. 2.

The 31-year-old victim was walking along Carlton Avenue, near Lafayette Avenue, at around 1 am, when a man wearing a dark blue jacket asked for her help. The woman, rightly suspicious, said she couldn’t help him and kept walking. The criminal decided to eschew tricking her, and simply ran behind her and grabbed her bag from her arm as he went past.

There were credit cards, a monthly Metrocard, and ID cards inside the purse, but the most valuable thing was the bag itself — it was a Gryson bag, worth $715, cops said."

For those, like me, who dont' know what a Gryson bag looks like, see picture to the left, grabbed from the Neiman Marcus website.
