Does anyone know what’s happening? There’s a low flying chopper hovering over 78th St. by 35th Ave.

The helicopter remains hovering. A speeding police/ambulance came up 78th St and turned right on 35th. There is one flashing light vehicle on 35th and 79th and ambulances going back and forth on 35th. I have no idea what it is about but the helicopter remains in place as I write.

Citizen app says that police are responding to a robbery. I don’t know how accurate that is though.

Whatever it's doing, that particular helicopter appears to have flown here directly from the protests at Union Square:
