It's 6 a.m. Do you know where your neighbors are?

In case you haven't seen this viral video that got its start on TikTok (since removed, it seems). However, it has been shared by multiple sites and sources, garnering millions of views in the process. (Thank you to the EVG readers who shared this starting back on Saturday.) 

Not sure when or where this was filmed — an undisclosed East Village building. Anyway, per the clip, it's 6 a.m., and three people are on the fire escape doing whatever they're doing and wooing ... soon, a resident starts yelling "shut the fuck up" and "hey asshole." 

The male fire escapee then tells the neighbor to "relax." (😬) Then some other neighbors join in — "shut the fuck up" ... and you can see the rest in the clip (sound on!) via @Complex ...

I am telling you! We are living in a GTA simulation or variation thereof!

93 East 7th Street. Above the old Luke’s Lobster.

Does anyone know the address of this building? I would love for the landlord to see it. Sure, they want to make money off these kids, but they don't want to be sued when one of them topples off the fire escape. I can't believe they would lean over that janky old railing like that.

These people are the worst. I'd be yelling at them too.

How do people like this have zero empathy for anyone else? Where do they come from and why do they seem to all come here??

Judging by the Con Ed tower in the background, I'm guessing this could be somewhere around 12th & A?

This is the result of the hood becoming an oasis during the pandemic, now the oasis has been trashed and is evolved into a cesspool.

The address is above. It’s in the old Luke’s Lobster building on 7th.

Has anybody sent this video to Carlina Rivera? Isn't Carlina Rivera running to be re-elected? Let's see if she addresses this issue at hand. Carlina sure wanted everybody to know she was running for re-election by have the gigantic poster board near the voting locations!!!

Entitled little Assholes.

This is the result of entitled adults who know nothing will happen to them. And they probably love this kind of attention.

These people are clearly tourists. No one in the neighborhood pulls stuff like this, regardless of having a long night out

Last night I saw something similar on the fire escape of the building on A where a girl tragically fell to her death a number of weeks ago. The same building! SMH

Right On! see a tiny bit of encouragement in this clip! the neighbors plural are actually telling them to STFU rather than passively except their aberrant behaviour, too often these last couple of years it's been no one or one/two people saying turn it or yourself down/off stop wooing etc.. and getting laughed at or worse
Rise Up & Unite Neighbors! seriously if these peoples parents didn't raise them right it's unfortunately up to us, this and heavy profit killing fines for Landlords that allow tenants to disturb others quiet enjoyment of their homes

This would never happen in Beacon!

I just walked by there. The railings on fire escapes are low. One bump from her careless friends and the girl in the black top could have flipped right over. These kids from the burbs don't get it. It's one thing to sit on the fire escape. But they are all dancing on them. I have seen six, seven, eight of them all crowded on the fire escapes. The tenants should send this video to the fire department. Maybe there is a fine or the fire department could at least visit the building to tell these idiots why what they are doing is dangerous.

Keep in mind, we're only seeing the lady from below yelling when they're on the fire escape. There's a good chance they were being incredibly loud (whether vocally, or with moving/stomping/scraping) inside the apartment for awhile before 6 AM.

Jeez. It's like no one here was ever young and got drunk and had fun. I remember being drunk and loud and annoying when I was young and I wasn't entitled. It was fun. And getting yelled at by people trying to sleep was fun. Why do you live in the East Village if you can't deal with some noise once in a while?

@6:09pm. I was just telling someone about getting drunk in the hood and sometimes stumbling home, but unlike you I wasn't loud and obnoxious. Frankly I was slightly embarrassed about being so drunk that I tried to get home as quickly and quietly as possible. Maybe it's because I was raised to be considerate of others even when I was having fun or too much fun. I recently had to do the same thing at 4am on a Tuesday morning. My neighbors got the message and took their noise inside.

@6:09pm: If you behaved like that when you were young, you certainly WERE entitled, and you sound like you still are both juvenile and entitled.

Please explain what's "fun" about being drunk and partying on a rickety-looking fire escape at 6 AM on a WEEKDAY. I'll wait.

I sincerely wish YOU all the noise you find to be "fun"! I hope you'll always have lots of such noise no matter where you live, and that it will continue well into your retirement years. Surely you'll remember how VERY much "fun" it all was, and you won't be bothered by it at all!

Do what I do when these loud college kids party all night long. Ring their bell early in the morning or in the middle of the night. We’ve all experienced that middle of the night door bell ring by drunk people who lost their keys. Thinking they can get into the building and think they can get into their apartments with out their keys.

The poster at 6:09 p.m. does not live in the East Village because if they did they would know it's not once in a while. It's nonstop.

"Why do you live in the East Village if you can't deal with some noise once in a while?"

A variation of the "If you don't like____,move to____" line said by a "supposedly" EV regular. Anyway, as already noted at the Grieve roof top party thread:

"You can't really control it, because every time you get some tiny grip on the situation, there's a whole bunch of new residents," says Nicholas Peate, who lives on East 7th Street. Both Peate and [Robert] La Force are so fed up with the constant loud parties, they are thinking of moving out.

"They market [these apartments] as a sort of a luxury frat house, that's the issue," Peate says. "So basically, they say, 'You're here, you're entitled, you're wealthy, you're white, and you can just do whatever the fuck you want.'"

I often watch apartment videos on Youtube where a young adult just graduated gets their first NYC apt, a small studio with a fire escape and they think it is such a cool idea to go out on the fire escape. They love the idea. UGH!!!!

I'm the 6:09 guy above. I do live in the East Village. And my block is really loud, especially on the weekends. I had these assholes downstairs who used to have parties every weekend outside that always had some drunk girls shouting. There are crowds outside the bars, which are starting to come back after the pandemic. By the way, the pandemic made the neighborhood seriously quiet.

Someone asked what was fun about getting drunk and making noise. Look at that video and you can see they are having fun. Yeah, they're abnoxious. So what? I'm glad you were all model drunken citizens when you were twenty, but that's not how I remember my twenties. I don't feel like getting drunk and loud is entitled, but that word gets thrown around a lot these days. No one old has ever liked rowdy, angry, drunk kids with an attitude. So call them entitled and forget that you used to do things that thumbed their nose at authority and piss your parents off.

I've lived here a long time. I don't love how the neighborhood changed from being a cheap, diverse neighborhood to a frat party vibe. I'm not sure I miss being robbed by crack addicts. Did all the bridge and tunnel kids just move here? I have my complaints, but it's New York. And we just went through a pandemic. People want to have fun again. Feel free to yell at them to shut up. That's part of New York too. But this is a fun, young neighborhood now, like it or not. And it's the city that never sleeps!

My new neighbor had a couple dozen of his closest friends over the other night. They were talking and screaming in the hallway as if no one else lives in the building. The landlord doesn’t care. If people like me move he can turn my apartment into another party pad to be occupied by bros.

@12:05pm: I guess you think everyone was young, drunk & obnoxious when they were young. You're WRONG, completely wrong about that. But maybe you only used to hang out with people who were that way.

I NEVER behaved that way, b/c I had too much self-respect (and didn't need to be drunk and/or obnoxious to have "fun") and I also had too much respect for my neighbors. I have lived here a hell of a long time, so I know that the kind of behavior this video shows is NOT normal, and it should never be accepted as normal.

Do you think these "fun" people are quiet when they're inside their apartment?

This video shows behavior that absolutely IS about being ENTITLED, as in: entitled to whatever you want, whenever you feel like it, without ever considering anyone else, nor considering that you are part of society or a neighborhood. There is no other word for the what's shown in that video other than ENTITLED.

You say "So call them entitled and forget that you used to do things that thumbed their nose at authority and piss your parents off." Well I didn't do that, either, b/c I was raised in a way that didn't leave me hostile to "authority" nor to my parents.

I have only one question for you: How happy would you be if what's shown on this video happened every day & YOU were the person who lived directly below these "fun" people?

The difference was that it was traditionally the counter culture around here. This is now the mainstream culture that people wanted to get away from. It was never like this, sorry. As**o*es.

Probably not evil people. Maybe thoughtless and in need of house training. Guy shouting relax was not overtly hostile. Young woman struck a theatrical and charming pose I thought. You can be annoyed and forgiving at the same time neighbors.

Anyone who gets waken up at an unduly time can react annoyed, especially when it is not a rare one time occurrence but part of a larger pattern. The young adults on the fire-escape behave clearly inconsiderate to their neighbors. Alcohol might have impaired their judgement at that particular time, which they may feel ashamed of when sober. Their neighbor might forgive kindly when they apologize. This is good heart in this city.

What is worrisome, however, is the pattern that buildings owners tend to care only for their profits and look the other way when egregious behavior warrants action.
Young adults are in the process of forming their moral compass. Many, if not most, have good intentions to become a responsible person who cares for neighbors. Though we have also witnessed--and increasing over the past few years--behaviors of mistaken entitlement and utter disregard for others.

This community has unfortunately come under siege lately by such types. We need proper and swift enforcement of existing noise codes, strengthened noise codes, more then just a smoke sceen of pre-election involvement by elected official, and given the fact that a substantial portion of the transient newcomers are students, active support from the educational institutions, especially NYU.

Just another typical night/morning in the EV. The EV is a free spirited hood, but these idiots either just moved out of Mommy's basement or were raised in circus. They have no clue about how to behave in the real world. A good verbal spanking is just what they deserve.....that plus the landlord should evict them for creating a nuisance in the building.

Seems pretty standard. I would also yell STFU at the annoying drunk kids upstairs, but it’s manhattan. For all the people on here who sound like an old man yelling at the kids to get off their lawn… I’m sorry you squandered your youth without ever being drunk and obnoxious. I too am sad to see rich frat kids doing this in LES, but I sure loved it when it was me and my punk friends having loud bands playing all night and being drunk immature jerks. 🤷🏻‍♂️
