The Quincy is an apartment building complex located in New Brunswick, New Jersey. It offers a variety of apartments to potential renters. However, events in recent years have New Jersey locals asking if the Quincy is a safe place to live. This comes after a widely publicized pizza robbery in 2013 and a shooting in 2015. Some call the apartment complex building a hotspot for crime, while others claim it is safe.
The robbery occurred on May 7, 2013.
When a pizza delivery driver was called to a residence at The Quincy, the occupant told him that he had not ordered a pizza. On the way back to his car, three young men told him that the pizza was theirs. When he went back to his car to retrieve it, a gun was pointed at him. The suspects demanded money and made off with his wallet and the pizza. In the days that followed, the South Brunswick Police were able to track down the leader of the trio and make an arrest. Chief Raymond Hayducka is quoted as saying the rate of violent crime is low in the New Brunswick, New Jersey community.
And the shooting happened on October 7, 2015.
Three or four shots rang out early in the night. Shortly afterward, a gunshot victim showed up at the emergency room at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital with a non-lethal gunshot wound. Police went back to the apartment buildings the next day to investigate when bullet casings were discovered.
From these events described, it is up to potential renters and local New Jersey citizens to decide if they feel the Quincy is still a safe place.
