Police are investigating the death of a man who was found unconscious on 18th Street in Astoria early today.

Police responded to a 911 call at 12:48 a.m. about an unconscious man, 48, lying in front of 20-16 18th St.  Emergency responders found the man unresponsive, with evidence of trauma on his face. 

The man was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner has yet to determine the cause of the man’s death. Police said that the examiner will make a determination as to whether or not it will be ruled a homicide.

No one has been arrested in regard to the incident, and the investigation is ongoing.

The man’s identity has not been released as it is pending family notification.

The good people of this apartment complex and all of our neighborhood should maybe considered starting a block watch association and work with our local police in doing so. Our 114 police has a website and this site lists what is called Build the Block and they have neighborhood safety meetings
.
https://www1.nyc.gov/site/nypd/bureaus/patrol/buildtheblock.page

I took this from 114’s website –
“Build the Block” Neighborhood Safety Meetings
Neighborhood policing seeks to close the divide between cops and community. But it can only succeed with your support.

That’s why the NYPD has been holding a series of local meetings. These “Build the Block” neighborhood safety meetings are strategy sessions between local police officers and the people they serve. The meetings have two simple goals: identify the public safety challenges of a specific neighborhood and discuss potential solutions.

The department is taking another important step towards improving trust, collaboration, and safety through neighborhood policing. But we can’t do it without you.

Join the discussion about issues in your community. This is your opportunity to have your voice heard about specific safety and policing challenges in your own neighborhood. To locate a meeting in your neighborhood, go to buildtheblock.nyc.

The lady that was interviewed on your news link who lived in Astoria for 40 years is saying what most of us know and experiencing. There was a time when we were unified as residents of Astoria and looked out for one and other that is no longer the case with how the neighborhood has changed. Its the working class and the elderly that I am most concerned about. The young middle class will just find a place with a doorman and security or just move out.

Oh Fran stop the pearl clutching.

People still look out for each other. There was crime years ago too.
The guy that shot his ex-wife, wife and child obviously had issues.

This location is at the new Marine Terrace Housing Development which also houses homeless Veterans. For those of you they do not know, I urge you to google it or drive around there before living in the Ditmars area. There are new apartments being built perhaps some of you would like to apply for Project-Based Rental Assistance.
