On what marks the fourteenth anniversary of 9/11, the hordes flocking to Ground Zero to commemorate the tragic event have, unfortunately, also included a pack of Bushwickians who went to “have an excuse to get wasted ’cause we’re, like, mourning or whatever.”
The “person in charge” of the group, a 33-year-old matronly type named Jasmine Quintana got sidetracked by an attractive man selling drugs on the nearby corner at Greenwich and Vesey Street. Her dalliance with him led to the rest of the rowdy crew, which consisted of a pack of 20-22 year olds, wandering into the building unsupervised.
When she finally realized they had found their way onto the 101st floor, where dining and drinks are available (as if that’s not in poor taste in and of itself), it was too late–they were completely and utterly blotto among those trying to have their own vigil for those lost on 9/11. Needless to say, their ribald behavior got them kicked out, and further solidified Bushwick as a place where giant babies with no tact live.
