At a time when it seems like a lot of people are rallying against SantaCon, the annual event received a thumbs up from Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
"This is an event we support. It's what makes New York, New York. There has been some rowdy activity by a small handful of people," Kelly said.
This reminds me of that scene from "Jaws," where Mayor Vaughn says to a reporter, "I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers."
Anyway! Is SantaCon, which happens this year on Dec. 14, really what makes "New York, New York"?
Meanwhile, here's a SantaCon report from Friday evening on WABC.
