NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Hundreds of people assembled in close proximity in Manhattan Friday night in the East Village, disregarding social distancing guidelines and not wearing face coverings - and drawing a social-media rebuke from the governor.
The gathering happened along a stretch of St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue in the East Village.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reacted to the incident via Twitter.
New York City bars and restaurants are set to reopen outdoor dining in Phase 2, which is likely several weeks away.
