Warm weather hasn’t even visited us yet, and already the large house parties have started to pop up.
A large house party on Howard Street last Saturday night disturbed neighbors and brought the police to the street twice.
Police responded to the party at 14 Howard St. around 11:30 p.m. and then cleared the scene. However, by 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, the party was a rockin’ again. Police responded once more.
The incident follows an allegedly out of control party on Beach Street two weeks ago in which four arrests were made and neighbors more than a block away could hear music from the party.
Large parties of this sort have become more prevalent in the last three years or so. In Boston, these sorts of parties have plagued communities and neighborhoods near colleges, prompting police there to add an anonymous ‘Party Line.’ Perhaps as the summer gets closer, and if these sorts of parties get more prevalent, the police could do a similar thing. Police can’t be expected to respond to every noise complaint in the city, but if one complains about a loud party and it is noted, then police can compile a list of problem party addresses. After all, where there’s one loud party, there’s sure to be another.
