Party boats and their clientele have been a long-time nuisance for many neighbors along Emmons Avenue, with complaints that patrons treat the area like a dump, urinate on lawns, leave behind broken bottles, and incite violent brawls.

Less than a week after Assembly member Steven Cymbrowitz announced a new parks enforcement detail to address quality-of-life issues surrounding Sheepshead Bay party boats , a large brawl broke out in the early hours of Sunday, August 6. Video of the event neighbor Aram Dzhamgarian took around 4:00am and posted on Facebook has gone viral with more than 100k views.

In its first weekend, the Parks enforcement patrol was scheduled to enforce the party boats and piers Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4:30pm – 1:00am, according to a statement on Cymbrowitz’s Facebook page. The new enforcement effort is in coordination with the 61st precinct, which is responsible for handling safety on the street, according to the statement.
