Greenwood Park Beer Garden Has Neighbors Pissed

Ted Mann’s gigantic Greenwood Heights beer garden, Greenwood Park, has been realizing neighbors’ worst fears since it opened last month, writes Brooklyn Paper. On weekends, when the all-day drinkers show up for bocce and boozing, scandalized locals report that the noisy streets smell like "a mix of pee, cigarettes, and throw-up," and that people are making out in doorways and engaging in car sex, "especially on a secluded stretch of 19th Street near Eighth Avenue." The dead at nearby Greenwood Cemetery are no doubt rolling over — but not so living residents, who are demanding Mann install Porta-Potties. Because that wouldn’t stink up the neighborhood.
