A kickball league in the Lower East Side of Manhattan now has stadium lighting, swelling crowds, and games that can run 'till 11pm on summer nights. Sounds fun? Not to one resident who's working to end it.
"I have lived in the neighborhood when there were gangs running around, heroin, but this is one of the most annoying, obnoxious things,” said Gehres, a resident for more than 30 years. "It is a very frat-house behavior. I don't want to insult children and say it is childish."
