HARLEM — Neighborhood shops are making it clear that customers wearing hooded sweatshirts or masks are not welcome.
“DO NOT ENTER WITH HOODIE OR MASK” read signs posted on three businesses along Frederick Douglass Boulevard, between 126th and 129th streets, warning “IF SO YOU ARE NOW TRESPASSING.”
While businesses see them as a way to stop shoplifting, some residents say the signs are offensive.
“I’m tired of people of color being viewed as criminals for wearing hoodies,” said Andrew Padilla, who noticed signs around 160th Street and Amsterdam in Washington Heights. “If wearing a hoodie makes you a criminal I should’ve been locked up years ago.”

On Tuesday night, a group of young men in oversized winter coats crowded close to the windows of El Nuevo Caridad, a restaurant in Washington Heights. Inside, there was a baseball game on television and the customers were watching and cheering as if it were the World Series.
In a way, it was. American baseball fans may still be in hibernation waiting for spring training, but pennant fever is raging in the Dominican neighborhoods in Upper Manhattan, where El Nuevo Caridad is a mecca for “beisbol” as it is played in the Dominican winter league.
“This place is the heart of baseball in Washington Heights,” said Jonathan Paez, 15, who strained to watch the game and avoid the waitresses ferrying trays loaded with steaming Dominican dishes and cold bottles of Presidente beer to tables of raucous fans.
In the championship series in the Dominican Republic, Los Tigres del Licey are taking on their archrival, Las Aguilas Cibaeñas.
“Las Aguilas are from Santiago, the town of my family,” said Jonathan, who prefers watching Dominican baseball to American. “There is more action in Dominican baseball. Every inning there’s a commotion.”
The two teams are longtime powerhouses from the two largest Dominican cities, with Licey representing Santo Domingo. The winner of the best-of-9 series goes to the Caribbean championships.
“For Dominican baseball fans, this is like the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry,” said Francis Castro, 25.
