Residents of Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood say their community has become overrun by drugs, sex and violence.
Some New York residents are complaining their once chic and upscale neighborhood has been overwhelmed by an influx of drugs and other obscenities that law enforcement has been unable to control, according to a report.
In Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, once known for its voguish condominiums and ritzy restaurants, drug users have begun openly using syringes in the streets, which are also permeated with violence, nudity, smoking and even sex dens, Fox 5 of New York reports.
"What's worse is it's not just at night — it's during the day," said Vivek Batra, a co-op owner in the neighborhood told Fox 5. "You can see people over here shooting up, smoking. I find pipes. I find needles in the street and kids are playing right here."
