Letter from the east village.
I lived in on the street level floor of a 4 or 5-story walk up in the East Village in Manhattan.
The front door opened to a small vestibule, then the 2nd door kept locked. I got in, and was about to put the key into my own door when a black entered the vestibule holding a large laundry bag and asked me to let him in for a delivery. I stupidly went against my instincts, not wanting to appear “racist”. This was back in the early 80’s.
I opened the vestibule door. He entered and before I knew it, he had a knife against my throat and told me to walk up the flight of stairs going to the 2nd floor. My instinct told me he intended to take me to the roof.
Now when I reached the 2nd floor, by some miracle there was an apartment door that was slightly ajar. Neither of us knew whether anyone was inside. That was my only chance.
I told him I wasn’t going any further. He threatened me again with the knife. I said no. He then decided it wasn’t worth the chance of possibly me starting yelling and someone coming out of that apartment with the open door. He told me to sit down, and at that point I knew he was planning on leaving, so I sat down. He warned me not to yell, I nodded, then he took off down the stairs and out of the building.
I then went back down to my apartment on the ground floor and called the police. I couldn’t give a good description because mostly they all look alike and I was a bit rattled by that close encounter of the Black kind.
