New York Businesses Fear Metallica

A group of business owners think that there will be riots when the metal legends play Yankee Stadium

The NY Post reports that the Bronx based business group took note of riots that ensued in Columbia and Chile last year when fans who couldn't get into sold out shows wreaked havoc in the streets.


161st Street BID Executive Director Cary Goodman says that he has put forward a potential solution to the problem.

"When I read about disturbances and riots, I thought, 'Why don't we think proactively and put up a big screen in Macombs Dam Park?'" he said.
The anxious leader reached out to the band's management this month, but said he still hasn't heard back.

In the meantime, he has already requested a heightened police presence, and arranged to double the number of sanitation crews from two to four, he said.
