sends this first-person account of the scene on Ludlow Street between Stanton and Rivington on the Lower East Side on Wednesday night. This is what New Year's Eve on the LES in 2014 looks like, people:

Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, somebody started DJ'ing through a big stereo in the middle of Ludlow Street at max-volume. So, you know, no sleep for me. Or anyone else on the block. Around 1 a.m. the cops show up and shut it down. There's about twenty drunk people and they start screaming things like "Fuck the police," "NYPD, KKK, how many children did you kill today?" and "I CAN'T BREATHE!" Then one guy stands in front of the cop car, and the video above shows the rest.

More video is below.
