Nearly a decade after they first arrived in Greenport, the Guardian Angels will once again maintain a regular presence in the village, this time hoping to deter gang violence.
The organization’s founder told a crowd of more than 40 at St. Agnes R.C. Church that walking the streets of Greenport will be the first step in the red berets’ return to the community.
“The patrols will be here,” Guardian Angels CEO Curtis Sliwa said Tuesday night. “That’s one major step in the right direction.”
