A man was stabbed to death in a fight following Summer Family Day on 114th St. between FDB and 7th. As usual, no-one saw what happened.

A boy from Palisades Park in Bergen County was stabbed to death in a Harlem apartment early this morning, New York City Police said.
Anthony Maldonado had been visiting his uncle, the boy’s mother, Dolores Beatriz Juelas, said today as she wept inside the Palisades Park apartment she shared with her son.
Juelas, 35, said the boy’s uncle had been renting a room from a woman in Harlem who had three sons who were living with her, ages 17, 20 and 24.
Anthony was playing a skateboarding video game with the three brothers when the 17-and 20-year-old left to get food, she said. The brothers told Anthony to stay in the apartment because it was cold outside, Juelas said.
