 Looks like it's going to be a long, hot summer at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Another evacuation of the park by police took place on Wednesday, May 11, after hundreds of young people gathered at Pier 2 and a brawl broke out, the Brooklyn Eagle reported.

This is the fourth rumble in the park at Pier 2, and the pier -- where the basketball courts are located -- has been shut down by cops several times. The community is up in arms.

The Brooklyn Heights Association told the Eagle that the 84th Precinct now has 16 additional police officers assigned to the park.

BHA urged community members to attend the Tuesday, May 17th meeting of the 84th Precinct Community Council at 7 p.m., at 160 Schermerhorn Street, to discuss the problems.
