Icon Realty's 205 Avenue A has a bit of a reputation for its rooftop ragers, which in the past attracted the attention of the neighbors, the police and the media. (Brokers did once dub this an "East Village frat house" in a listing.)
Haven't heard too much from the address this past summer ... until an EVG reader who lives nearby noted that there was a sizable party with maybe 100 guests between the rooftop and backyard area on Friday evening.
Per the reader:
Most interestingly was what was going on in the backyard. There was a DJ, and lots of lights, but the noise was minimal. It took me a minute to piece it together, but all of the lights were coming from headphones that everyone was wearing — they literally set up a silent disco in their backyard.
I don't really want to pan these guys cause it's definitely progress from last year and I guess I appreciate them coming up with a creative way to keep the noise down (even if the thought process almost certainly was more about not having the cops called than thinking about their neighbors).
