Warning! Don’t be drinkin’ in the hard streets of Cobble Hill or you’ll get a summons! This just in from a local tipster:
Walking to dinner last night, I was stopped by the lovely folks of the 76th precinct to inquire what I was drinking in my red solo cup. Of course it was whiskey, and of course I was issued a ticket for open container. The three officers were nice guys (they even let me finish my drink) – and informed me that the precinct is cracking down on quality of life offenses, including drinking, spitting, urination, bikes on sidewalks, hanging out in the park after dark, and having your dog off a leash. While I was bummed that I received a ticket, it made me realize what a safe neighborhood we live in – when 3 officers highest priority is busting public drinking.
