It was an absolute mob scene late on Thursday night in Greenwich Village.
“Fashion’s Night Out” turned ugly and spiraled into chaos at the corner of Broadway and Bleecker Street when the driver of an Audi apparently exchanged words with a bicyclist.
The man’s car then became an instant punching bag.
“People were surrounding this car,” freelance photographer Jika Gonzalez told 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg. “They were running across it, jumping on it and dancing on it. It honestly seemed like they were just kids having fun, which is a little scary. It was definitely out of control, and I don’t think they were really considering their actions.”
Gonzalez witnessed the melee as the crowd smashed the motorist’s windows.
The driver was unharmed in the incident.
