Loud, drunken crowd this week

One issue, as raised in an 11/20/12 complaint (after a college hoops tourney) to Atlantic Yards Watch:
Approximately 30 minutes of nonstop top-of-lungs yelling & screaming from constant stream of people leaving event. Crowds spilling over into 5th Avenue causing noise from honking cars. Some additional noise is to be expected from the arena crowds, but this is ridiculous.
