A bar fight on the Lower East Side is pitting business owners against neighborhood residents.

No fists were flying, but plenty of angry words were exchanged Monday Night at a Community Board Three meeting over liquor licenses.

Residents fed up with noise want the board to limit bars in the area.

One neighborhood blog, LESdwellers.org, even posted pictures of drunken late night crowds.

Community boards can make recommendations, but the state has the final say.
