Dealing with Dealers


I live in a gentrifying neighborhood. Someone on the block is dealing drugs that, I recently learned, are less benign than I’d assumed; he’s dealing crystal meth. I believe that the drug laws are overly punitive, and I’ve never had a problem with the dealer. But I would like to see the block cleaned up and the drug traffic gone. What’s the morality of narcking on the neighbors?
Anonymous, Brooklyn

So … where in Brooklyn exactly? I hear Red Hook is gentrifying these days (“Cobble Hill West” my arse). Is it Red Hook? Whereabouts? That shady bricked-up brownstone on Van Brunt?
