Carnival or Chaos

Carnival or Chaos

Dear Editor;

I was informed by a friend that the NYC Parks Department has approved a permit for the annual carnival on Beach 17th Street. After last year's fiasco, the carnival should not be allowed to take place due to the fact that all it does is create chaos for a couple of weeks.

Last year, teenagers ran rampant all over the streets stopping traffic. They were fighting, throwing bottles, and the police could only catch a few. I viewed all of this from my window. If there isn't going to be an enormous amount of police presence then the carnival shouldn't be allowed here.
