Two illegal Halloween parties attended by hundreds of revellers drinking and dancing inside warehouses were broken up by New York City authorities in Brooklyn and in the Bronx over consecutive nights this weekend.

Twenty-one people were arrested and more than 550 people were ordered to leave an illegal gathering at 1420 Seabury Avenue in the Bronx early Sunday morning.

Sheriff Joseph Fucito and his deputies were conducting surveillance outside the warehouse, located near Westchester Square, after receiving a tip and watched as dozens of people dressed in costumes entered the building through a rear entrance. 

The officers heard loud music coming from inside the warehouse and moved in to bust the gathering at 1:30am.

Once inside, they say they found at least 557 attendees – many of whom were not wearing face coverings – crowded together and drinking.

Additionally, the event had two live DJs, a large ‘walk up’ bar, multiple bathrooms, and a food truck that had been set up in the loading dock.

Photos from inside the party match the sheriff’s office’s description of the event, with hundreds of revellers packed tightly together on the dance floor, in violation of social distancing protocol.

Deputies also found large amounts of alcohol at the bar and in a number of storage locations. The location was not licensed by the New York State Liquor Authority to serve or store any type of alcoholic beverages, officials said.

Police arrested 21 people who they say are responsible for organizing the event. They were charged for violating Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s executive orders that restrict nonessential gatherings during the coronavirus.

Fines for these types of violations can go from $1,000 to $15,000.

The apparent organizers, who haven’t been named, were later released after receiving criminal court appearance tickets and civil summonses.

One business, Abe V. Systems, was also charged with failure to comply with the NYC Health Code, failure to protect health and safety, and various Alcoholic Beverage Control laws.

A spokesperson for the company told the New York Times that they had rented the building out for a virtual event but only recently found out about the party.

Less than 24 hours earlier, a party in with nearly 400 people was broken up by city sheriffs in a Warehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

When deputies arrived just after 1am, they discovered at least 387 people in attendance, which again violated the city’s large gatherings mandate.

Photos shared by the sheriff’s office showed guests standing shoulder-to-shoulder inside the warehouse, with only some wearing facemasks.

The event also featured Halloween decorations, a D.J. and three bars inside, the sheriff’s office said. Eight people and one business, Norman Kingsland LLC, face charges
