Two NYPD detectives — including one decorated by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg — were arrested Thursday on accusations they fabricated seeing a man with a gun in Washington Heights and repeated the lie on a search warrant and before a grand jury.
Detectives Sasha Cordoba and Kevin Desormeau, both 33, arrested Jamal Choice, 38, for gun possession on Nov. 6, 2014, at a building on W. 175th St., sources said.
Choice, now 40, and who now lives in South Carolina, told the Daily News on Thursday that he couldn’t make the $75,000 bail in his case, so the officers’ lie cost him eight months on Rikers Island.
“But the D.A., bless her soul, looked at my case and knew something was wrong,” Choice said. “She said, ‘You can’t let them get away with this because if they did this to you how many others have they done it to?’”
A (long) love story
Story by Sherry Mazzocchi
Patience, faith, and chewing food slowly.
Those are what Eulalia García Figueroa says are the secrets to a long life.
She should know. She celebrated her 100th birthday with nearly 40 family members and close friends at Coogan’s this past Sat., Feb. 11th.
Figueroa was born in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico, on February 12, 1917. It is a small pastoral town close to a mountain the locals call “The Sleeping Giant.”
She came from a large family. Her mother, Marcelina, had eleven children, including two sets of twins. “My mother was a very strong person,” she said.
Attractive and stylish, García Figueroa made her own clothes and had lots of friends. They went to dances, wearing the pretty dresses they had made.
She had many suitors. It wasn’t long before Samuel García had caught her eye. He worked in a local shop. He was a few years older; confident, handsome, and hard to ignore.
They were different. She read books and wrote poetry. He was rather “earthy.” He was the youngest of four brothers and the family favorite. He was always well dressed, charming and persuasive.
“I think he bewitched me,” García Figueroa said of her husband.

At the northern tip of Manhattan island, the scenery is reminiscent of the Hudson River Valley at Fort Tryon and Inwood Hill parks. Thick forests, steep hills, and views of the Palisades across the Hudson River. The east side of Inwood on the Harlem River receives fewer visitors, but has a rich natural and human history of its own.
Sherman Creek and Swindler Cove offer a connection to the water’s edge, serving as examples of a waterfront restored to its natural appearance.
Where it is
Once a stream that originated further inland, Sherman Creek today is an indentation in the Harlem River at the northern terminus of the Harlem River Drive, where it continues in a northwest direction as Dyckman Street. To the cove’s south is Highbridge Park, which covers a forested ridge extending south to 155th Street. The cove is bound by Sherman Creek Park, Tenth Avenue, and Academy Street.
