Drug Dealers Drive Up, and Deliver 

Image description

The media is beginning to report on what residents of Harlem and Washington Heights have been noticing ever since OnPoint opened their two supervised injection sites.  Drug dealers in East Harlem setup shop in front of OnPoint, or in Washington Heights they just drive up to peddle their product out of a van — acting like Amazon for the heroin, crack, and fentanyl consumed in OnPoint's facilities.

In an investigative piece, The New York Post witnessed one woman with track marks on her hands make an exchange with the man in the van before bee-lining to the OnPoint NYC injection site three blocks away.

  • Ten minutes later, the woman was seen heading across the street to Highbridge Park with a friend.
  • Others who were seen leaving OnPoint that day also entered the park and shot up with fresh needles.

"Rodrigo Caballero, a former NYPD detective who covered Washington Heights for more than a decade, said that despite the safe injection sites’ efforts to “do good,” they are causing “an eroding effect” by drawing drug activity and accompanying lawlessness in the area that is beyond the staff’s control."
