If you're trying to avoid the frigid weather by having a pizza delivered, don't be surprised if you get a lukewarm response when you call. From the Lake Effect News:
"Twenty-third District police have reached out to Uptown restaurants telling them to be alert of possible street robberies after two food deliverymen were robbed within the span of a few hours on Dec. 27. In both instances, three males donning ski masks jumped and robbed the victims as they were delivering food orders to the 800 blocks of West Agatite and Sunnyside. Residents in nearby apartments heard the victims’ cries for help and summoned police."
