Greenwood residents say beer hall is a neighborhood nuisance

Following the opening of the 700-seat beer hall Greenwood Park in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn last month, neighborhood residents are complaining that patrons are behaving badly — having sex in public, urinating on public property, driving drunk from the premises and making excessive noise late into the night. The problems reportedly get worse on the weekends.

According to the Brooklyn Paper, a group of residents want the bar’s owners to hire extra security personnel, hang signs to remind customers to leave the premises quietly and to set up some portable toilets outside.

Greenwood Park owner Ted Mann, who is the son of musician Ted Nugent, told the Brooklyn Paper that he does his part to keep the neighborhood clean and quiet. “Our security has grown from two to eight individuals walking the space both inside and out,” he was quoted as saying.

He added that he is now in talks with local residents and the community board to discuss concerns and solutions. [Brooklyn Paper] — Zachary Kussin
