EAST FISHKILL, N.Y. -- The East Fishkill Police Department has designated a space in its lower level visitor parking lot as a safe location to exchange property with others when conducting online purchases and sales with strangers.
The space is marked by a sign.
The popularity of Craigslist and other on-line sale sites often leave people meeting the buyer or seller in unprotected locations like mall parking lots.
The goal is for this location to lead to safer transactions between the people who meet to make these exchanges.
