Brooklyn Stoop Drinkers

New, 19 comments

The latest brownstone Brooklyn tempest in a teapot is...stoop drinking. This is because someone was busted for quaffing a cold Sierra Nevada on his stoop in Prospect Heights after watching Joe Biden speak at the Democratic Convention, got a $25 ticket and raised the whole issue of whether it's legal or not to drink on one's own stoop. The cops say no. The drinkers say get lost and go arrest some criminals. [NYT]
