Said one reader: "They had an megaphone earlier and were chatting with pedestrians. (Highlight from 10:30 AM: 'Attention New York: I am day drunk.'")

I know we shouldn't assume the worst, but what do you think- long time residents or frat rats?

This blog is now infested with frat types. They treat the buildings like dorms and have zero respect for the neighbors. I am kind of thrilled that the police showed up in this instance and did something about what was happening.
