The Quincy is a contemporary housing complex targeted at the middle-class and working families. It is located off Route 18 on Neilson Street in downtown New Brunswick in New Jersey. It is managed by Alliance Residential, one of the largest privately-held property management firms in the country.
Recent developments at The Quincy have cast doubts as to whether the management is being honest about the target clientele and tenants. A number of incidents have raised security concerns at the complex. Consequently, the integrity of the tenants is in question as the activities are downright criminal. It is not clear if the aggressors are tenants or visitors. It is quickly becoming synonymous with criminal activity in downtown New Brunswick.
On May 7, 2013, three adult males robbed a pizza guy inside the compound at gunpoint. They took the pizza plus the delivery guy’s personal effects including his wallet. The three men are reported to have sped off in a dark van. The suspects are known delinquents in the neighborhood and their days of running away from the law are said to be numbered.
Parish Wood, also known by multiple other aliases, was tracked to the crime scene at the time using his cell phone data. It is believed he had made a habit of robbing pizza delivery guys in the area and has already been charged.
The prevalence of mobile devices in the digital age seems to be working in favor of the law enforcement in this case. The ongoing investigation is expected to net the whole criminal gang that has been terrorizing residents and visitors at the complex.
On October 7, 2015, residents at the complex called the police with reports of gunfire. One injured victim was picked up from the parking lot and hospitalized. They lived to describe the attacker. The attacker is said to have been a male wearing a hoodie. They disappeared in the direction of Neilson Street. There were bullet shells within the compound of the apartment complex.
The complex has experienced a wave of criminal activities with the police claiming numerous incident reports have been filed related to the apartment complex. Residents are afraid of ordering pizza. They are scared of strangers. There are over two hundred apartments in the high-rise complex. The apartments are marketed as luxury rentals with a myriad of amenities and designer finishes. They are fitted with modern kitchens and bathrooms, exquisite finishes, sleek flooring, and offer scenic views.
