My journal notes on The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
17th Precinct Headquarters, East Fifty-first Street, Manhattan
More importantly, inside a cell at the 17th Precinct Headquarters.
Present at this location is Setrakian, Gus and Gus’s unfortunate friend, Felix.
Amazingly, Abraham Setrakian has a history and a reputation in his community. Gangs and thieves know better than to try to steal from the pawnbrokers on 118th street, and it seems the old man is well known and respected.
Setrakian said, “The first week I took over the shop, someone broke my front window. I replaced it and then I watch, and I wait. Caught the next bunch who came to break it. I gave them something to think about, and something to tell their friends. That was more than thirty years ago. I haven’t had a problem with my glass since.”
They kind of trade stories, but Abraham cuts straight to the meat of the situation. The vampire that Gus and Felix fought with.
