And Now This Word From Our State Assemblyman

Assemblyman Lentol Calls on Attorney General to Investigate Pop-Up _Rave_ Parties Plaguing Brooklyn_Page_1nys

So there have you. You can view this letter in its entirety by clicking here or here. Thanks Joe Lentol! That said, I have to wonder where our State Senator, Martin Malave Dilan, stands on this matter? Anyone care to ask him?

As promised, NAG got their hands on the permits regarding Cityfox’s kiboshed Halloween party at 20 Clay Street (AKA: the NuHart Plastics Factory) and have made them public.  I have to say my eyebrow was raised more than once by what I beheld. For starters a local (READ: Greenpoint) business, the One Stop Beer Shop, was the liquor license applicant. But even more interestingly (to me, anyway) was who handled the catering (!):

Those of you, gentle readers, who may be wondering why I find this noteworthy can/should take a moment out of your day and do the following:

You have my personal guarantee what awaits you is worth it. In closing, I will leave you with a few thoughts I tendered via email to various concerned citizens, neighborhood organizations, elected officials and what not. Enjoy!

In any case (and it is not my intent to sideline the environmental concerns here)…

If I understand what (excised) wrote correctly by law all liquor licenses, including those for events, should be run by the Community Board. However, this was not/is not the case. Had proper protocol been followed, this would have been on our radar well before the Thursday or Friday before the event. E.g.; it would have been placed on the agenda/list for the SLA committee, the agenda would be made public and someone, noting the address, would have caught it, contacted the authorities, etc.

In a nutshell, I want to know if we are going to start following the rules here. Otherwise this can and probably will happen again elsewhere. It is not like we’re lacking in similar such large commercial/industrial spaces…
