CROWN HEIGHTS - Clinton Green, of the Nostrand Merchants Association, says there has been an increased police presence on Nostrand Avenue following a drug bust in April.

Six businesses were busted then for allegedly selling drugs. One business has reopened under a new name and the rest of the accused businesses remain closed.

Even with the improvement, Councilwoman Letitia James says the problem is not 100-percent solved and is still asking for surveillance of Nostrand Avenue.
