NYC residents want to force last call at high-end hotel over 'indecent' pool parties

Some New York City residents are calling for last call at a luxury Park Avenue hotel over what they call "indecent exposure" at its rooftop pool parties.

CBS New York reports neighbors are asking the New York State Liquor Authority to revoke the liquor license for the Gansevoort Park Hotel, where rooms often start at $400 a night, due to its patrons' alleged antics.

Neighbors say they have frequently witnessed hotel guests pulling their bathing suit tops and bottoms down at the hotel's rooftop pool, and are frequently kept awake due to drunken screaming. 

“They’re coming to the city to be wild. They don’t care who is living there,” 29th Street Neighborhood Association chairman Mario Messina told CBS New York. “It’s the wrong place and the wrong time to do something like that.”

The hotel's management has met with the neighborhood association, but residents say they still feel the hotel is not doing enough to address their concerns.

The liquor authority board tells CBS New York they have received photos of the antics at the hotel, and are looking into the matter.
