Two burglars stole cash and cigarettes from a newsstand on York Avenue. At 7:04 PM on Sunday, July 21, a 20-year-old man entered the store and displayed a firearm, while another 20-year-old man went behind the counter and took $1,000 plus two cartons of Marlboro cigarettes valued at $230. One of the robbers also asked the store clerk, a 54-year-old man, to hand over his wallet and took the cash from the wallet. The dastardly duo then fled northbound on York and eastbound on East 73rd street before entering a black van and speeding off eastbound towards the FDR Drive.
