No. I remember 1950 - Mom Sylvia throwing a light bulb out the window late at night to make the people on the sidewalks below shut up. It sounded like a gun going off when it hit the ground and yes they took off. (815 Pelham Parkway just before we moved to Nonna's at 615 PPkway) We always locked our doors. There were enough nutsos out there even back then. Even the kids were problematic -- Mom came out one day to find two kids shooting BB's at her new car. She called the cops
