Orange bags of garbage are piled high in a subway car. The MTA has been using passenger cars to transport garbage between stations late at night.


THE COMMUTE: The nice clean train you are riding on today could have been hauling garbage last night.  That’s what straphangers recently learned after a transit worker tipped off the Daily News last week. Bags of smelly garbage collected by track workers were placed aboard a passenger transit car for two stops between 59th Street and 42nd Street on the Number 6 line because there was inadequate storage space at 59th Street, according to the MTA.

The agency stated that this practice, which routinely occurs, was “not agency practice,” is against MTA policy, and was done without the knowledge of a senior manager.  They stated that the supervisor responsible will be disciplined, but declined to indicate how.  It is not known if the MTA had been previously aware of passengers sharing their trains with garbage, but Marvin Holland of TWU Local 100 has seen it before, agrees it is a health risk and has remained silent about it. The question is why, if the union cares so much about the passengers as they claim whenever the MTA wants to cut service.

A few things about this story do not quite jive. Keep reading for Rosen’s take.

Officials are looking to question the husband of a woman – and step-father to her daughter – after the women were found stabbed to death late last night, the Daily News is reporting.

Police have alerted airports to be on the lookout for the man, who authorities hope will have more information regarding the fatal stabbings of his step-daughter Larisa Prikhodko, 27, and his wife Tatyana Prikhodko, 56, in their apartment at 2299 East 13th Street, just off of Gravesend Neck Road.

Authorities released the identities of the two victims shortly after 10:00 a.m.

Police stumbled upon the grisly murder scene of a mother and daughter late last night, both having suffered multiple stab wounds to the face and torso.

Early reports of the incident say officers were following up on a report of a missing 27-year-old woman on Sunday, and they discovered the double homicide when they visited her home. Both Larisa Prikhodko, 27, and her mom Tatyana Prikhodko, 56, lay slain in the apartment at 2299 East 13th Street, just off of Gravesend Neck Road. One of the victims was found near the front door, and the other in a bedroom, the Daily News reports.

Police cordoned off the apartment and began canvassing the area. One neighbor told the New York Post that, shortly after midnight, the superintendant knocked on her door and told her to stay in her apartment.

“I see so many policemen and detectives here,” the woman told the Post. “It must be something bad.”

Although it’s not clear how long the two have been dead, the missing persons report appears to have come from someone who was supposed to meet the younger woman Sunday evening. She didn’t show up, leading to the report, according to the Daily News.

Larisa had a 2-year-old son and worked as a nurse or nurse’s assistant.

“She was living with her mom and they weren’t sending the son to day care because they took turns caring for him,” a neighbor told the Daily News. “They always went to the playground. The baby was well taken care of.”

Police have not yet made any indication that they have a suspect in the case, and noted that there was no sign of forced entry.

These account for the fifth and sixth murders in the first four months of 2011, up from zero last year.

We’re hearing that a sailboat snapped free of its moorings and drifted out towards the Ocean Avenue footbridge, where it’s now stuck. Firemen are on the scene. We’re trying to get you a photo, and will let you know if any damage was caused to the historic footbridge.

This is a breaking news report and is subject to change as more information becomes available.

We couldn’t make it to this week’s 61st Precinct Community Council meeting, but luckily Sheepshead Bites has a number of spies among its readership. Nolastname attended and captured this video for us of Deputy Inspector Georgios Mastrokostas giving his report to the council.

Among the topics the precinct’s commanding officer addressed is that the crime rates appear to have leveled off overall. But in what seemed to be a response to Sheepshead Bites’ report that violent crime is on the rise, Mastrokostas acknowledged that there has been an increase in felonious assaults. But the deputy inspector noted, as did our report, the stats don’t necessarily tell the whole story.
