There were multiple incidents on Saturday in New York’s West Village. I can’t talk about matters under investigation. But I can talk about the outrageous invasion of Morton Streetthat took place Saturday night and into Sunday morning and which takes place routinely: Drunken/drugged careening mobs on foot trashing the neighborhood, and wilding gangs in vehicles both parked and passing through blasting residents out of their apartments with seriously damaging levels of music/noise.
This has got to stop. I suggest gating highly residential streets of the West Village every night from 10P to 6A. Like Washington Mews is. Divert traffic to the main thoroughfares.
Who will stand up for the community? If local police can’t or won’t address this egregious violation of human rights, outside law enforcement must assist. What is now being allowed to happen is unconscionable.

More than a dozen of my stories related to the Rome antiquities conspiracy trial were featured in Harvard Law School's Art Law Syllabus 2008.
I've covered the wars: Colombian Drug War, Gulf War, Sudan, and Kashmir (from both the Indian and Pakistani sides of the conflict).
And I’ve been a guest on Charlie Rose, McLaughlin and various Fox Television News programs talking about those crises and others.
For some years along the way, I was a runway fashion model for legends Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Giorgio Sant' Angelo and so many more.
