  • UGLY VIOLENCE IN CHELSEA BAR

    There is something you should know: the doorman at The View Bar (232 Eighth Ave.) assaulted a patron outside the bar on Friday evening. The patron was leaving with a beer, the doorman, a gay man who is tall, muscular man with salt-and-pepper goatee, grabbed for the bottle, no problem, but then knocked the patron to the ground and kicked him three times, as if it were The Holy Grail. The victim sustained a gash to the forehead plus a sprained ankle and injuries to his side. The Anti-Violence Project has been consulted and will pursue the case further as soon as possible. The police were called but were, of course, in such gay/lesbian cases, useless. This needs to be known within the gay/lesbian community: The View Bar is potentially dangerous to their clientele. We will be pursuing legal action against them in every way possible. I believe it you should know the hazards of The View Bar and what people might reasonably expect when frequenting it. There are many drug dealers and male prostitutes in this place. I saw three men, including one of the bartenders, snorting something in the bathroom. I suspect the doorman who beat the patron was also high on drugs, too. This place is UNSAFE.

    This is a very sad dreadful story that seems to be playing out more and more here. Man's inhumanity to man is out of control. I think it is probably as you describe, hard core drug related. I've also seen lots of angry young for want of a better way to describe them, bridge and tunnel crowds screaming inflamatory things at Chelsea residents they percieve as gay as if they can come into this neighborhood and decide who has a right to be here. What are we going to do? Too much anger around. God help us !
