NEW YORK - Social distancing has been an issue at college campuses across the country, including at New York University.
The event was eventually broken up by the NYPD, but this isn't the first time the park has attracted large crowds violating social distancing regulations.
Earlier this week, NYU suspended at least 20 students for violating coronavirus rules after Governor Andrew Cuomo called out the university for not breaking up the same type of gathering in the same park last weekend.
Despite the crowds, some NYU students say that they don't agree with others who are out partying.
"I'm here from outside the U.S. and my country closed its borders, so if NYU closes down, I can't go back home so I'm hoping people are respectful," one student told FOX 5 NY.
