7th Precinct Nightlife Crackdown

Are Days Numbered for The DL Nightclub on Delancey Street?

Looks like The DL – that five-year-old scourge of the Lower East Side – might be on some shaky ground. And on the defensive. Its liquor license is in a state of purgatory, having (technically) expired on September 30. Pending charges against the owners have temporarily blocked the renewal efforts. The club remains operational, though, […]

The weekly Hell Square horse patrols are finally winding down after a hefty four-year existence, as we first reported. No equestrian units were spotted last weekend.

No More Horses in Hell Square; Equestrian Brigade Headed Back to the Stable

Posted October 13, 2015 at 5:00 am

No more horse shit. Seriously. If you have the displeasure of walking through Hell Square during prime party hours, seek refuge in the forthcoming change of the guard. Or, rather, removal. Almost five years trampled underfoot, and with piles of manure to boot (or step in), the 7th Precinct is finally ending the practice of late-night horse […]

It’s not much, but something; a passive threat that will likely prove ineffective – “underage drinking will not be tolerated.” This is one way the NYPD thinks it can battle […]

NYPD Horse Shit in Hell Square Keeps Piling Up

Posted April 28, 2015 at 5:14 am

Shit outta luck. The past four years, residents of Hell Square (and one block below Delancey) have been categorically dumped on. Quite literally. The mounds of manure from the weekend horse patrols are relentless. It’s a near 100% guarantee that the neighborhood will wake up Saturday and Sunday mornings to a heaping pile. That’s in addition […]
