An ugly brawl on St. Mark's Place

NYC The Blog posted this footage today from an early Sunday morning fight on St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.... Per NYC The Blog: "A passerby who recorded the altercation doesn't know what caused the fight, but believes it began after one man made advances on the girlfriend of another. ... The person who recorded the video told NYC The Blog that two individuals were hurt badly: 'One had his face completely swollen and purple, while the second had a nasty gash on the side of his head and was bleeding a lot.' Police and ambulance did not arrive, and the fight was eventually broken up by friends and bystanders."

I like that you bolded "police did not arrive" as if that's unusual.

if they want the cops to arrive, someone ought to fall asleep by any of those ramen, sushi, froyo, baoguette, places.

I grew up on St. Marks and as a kid it was cool but now its such a hipster/douchbag place... filled with elitist assholes who think the world owes them EVERYTHING...

My mother still lives in the building I grew up in [betwixt ave. 2 & 3] and the way people act inside the building is a reflection of what the neighborhood is like outside...

And please don't bold out "the police didn't arrive fast enough" crap... the 9th pct has a lot more worse to handle than what happened to the savages on this video in the Projects next to the river
