6. 21st Police Precinct

One thing that’s a little off is that Nasir gets brought to the 21st Police Precinct, a defunct precinct that was located at 327 East 22nd Street. We previously went inside for a street art show in the building in Gramercy and can assure you that it’s definitely not the one in the show. For the neighborhood, Nasir would have been likely brought to the 20th Precinct at 120 West 82nd Street. We’ve been in that one too, for something unrelated to this publication, and the interior and exterior are different than what’s in the show. The first precinct that Nasir’s parents go to, the 12th or the One Two, as the police refer to it, also does not exist.
