Elmont Online

The person taking the video may have bee

The person taking the video may have been more effective if they confronted the two. I know, this can be dangerous, but if there was support from other neighbors then this would have been effective. I have lived in Elmont for only two years. During that time I have had to go to neighbors having very loud parties late at night to ask them to tone it down 5 times. I also called the police on 3 occasions when I did not get any results. One night I went for a short drive and encountered 5 loud parties that could be heard blocks away, going on after midnight. Additionally, there would frequently be cars parked outside my house with people sitting in them for hours at a time. Once, when it was obvious that they were smoking pot I approached them. One of them pointed down the block and said it’s OK because he lives down there. I politely suggested that if he wants to continue what he is doing then it would be more OK if he would do it there and not in the street. Well, first we all need to recognize that these types of behavior are not acceptable. The residents of Elmont should realize that they should not be having loud parties late at night which infringe on the rights of everyone else in the neighborhood. Smoking, drinking in public and other assorted behaviors are not something they are entitled to do at their whim. The neighbors do need to come out and support one another and let these people know that Elmont is not the place to behave this way. If anyone needs support to confront these people, I am willing to stand with you at any time.
