STREET HARASSMENT: I WAS WALKING DOWN SKILLMAN AVENUE
I was walking down Skillman Avenue in Sunnyside New York today around 2pm in the afternoon when a vehicle slowed down next to me and started to pass vulgar comments (close to 32nd place). He continued to do this for about a minute until he could no longer follow me as the street is one way after a certain point. This street was almost empty when this happened and I was not sure what to do. I felt threatened, angry and disgusted. I use the same street when I go on my evening walks. There is this one building and there is another man at the gate who says “hey mama” when I walk by. Same thing again happens near court square near a construction site. Is there anything I could do to stop these?
