Park Slope’s increase in crime has been met with a dedicated citizen. Thanks to Gotham’s Batman, women in the area feel a little safer getting home at night. Jay “Rocket” Ruiz is the caped crusader (without the cape and costume) that is responsible for getting over 30 women home safely at night. BrooklynEagle.com reports, “Ruiz began standing outside Park Slope subway stations holding a sign with his name, phone number and e-mail address.” Now ‘Batman’ is serving over 30 women in getting home safe.
The neighborhood is rallying around Ruiz to help keep the Slope streets safe. Ruiz keeps a regular conversation going on Brooklynian.com. Join the conversation and maybe join the bike patrol too!
