45. Because If Crime Creeps Back Up, It’ll Have Jorge to Contend With

ShareThis

This past May, Jorge Ortiz, a Park Avenue super, tackled and held a burglar who’d snuck into his building. He’s worked there for 21 years—starting at age 18 as a doorman—and has, in fact, established something of a record of volunteer law enforcement: He’d previously been attacked with a screwdriver by a car thief he was (successfully) trying to apprehend around the corner from his building on 95th Street. When interviewed by CBS news about his latest citizen-arrest, Ortiz said, “I think that he came to the wrong building to try to do his thing.”
