movie Across the country, increasingly militarized police departments have caused widespread consternation. According to the documentary Peace Officer, there has been a 15,000% increase in SWAT team raids in the U.S. since the late '70s.

You'll find it at 1414 6th [58th] 212.703.2007, part of the 1 Hotel. The design is by AvroKo. Yes, there's the Jams chicken.
