Cymbrowitz not on board with party boats
Assemblymember Steven Cymbrowitz is rocking the boat by introducing legislation that would ban certain “party boats” from docking and anchoring in Sheepshead Bay.
The boats, deemed a “longtime community nuisance associated with drunken patrons and noise” by Cymbrowitz’s office, have allegedly been “intruding” on the quality of life of surrounding neighbors.
“Look at the problem from a resident’s perspective,” said Cymbrowitz. “People drink and get rowdy even before they board the party boats. It’s one big party – but nobody who lives in this community is celebrating.”
The legislation, specific to Sheepshead Bay only, defines a “party boat” as a “vessel at least 14 feet long, operated by an owner or employee, and rented for a group recreational event of more than six passengers.”
