Occupants of downtown Lincoln Building party on nearby roof
In spite of it being the last weekend UMass is still in session and picture perfect weather throughout, overall the weekend went well from a pubic safety perspective: lots of fender benders, numerous noise complaints -- but relatively few arrests -- and only one DUI, but it was a doozy.
On Sunday afternoon (only minutes after someone sent me the above photo) police responded to a complaint about a large gathering of college aged youths from Lincoln Building apartment #201 on the adjoining roof of Bueno Y Sanyo. Police told the 30 or so perps to shut off the radio and get inside.
Which they did. Quickly.
Police broke up a party at 202 College Street early Sunday morning leaving each of the two responsible tenants with $300 civil violation tickets for both "noise" and "nuisance" or a cool $600 each. Probably could also have issued them tickets for littering.

And of course our young exuberant friends at the rowdy house located on well traveled North Pleasant Street (#800) were out during the day Saturday with the "You Honk We Drink" sign.
Not a lot of honks, but they drank anyway

"Eyesores" days are numbered.
