GREENWICH VILLAGE — The stiletto-wearing crowds that teeter home from Meatpacking District clubs may soon find themselves accessorizing with handcuffs if they don't quiet down.
Sixth Precinct police have picked up patrols in the area after a rise in complaints about noise, fights and public urination in the industrial zone turned nightlife destination. And they're promising to crackdown on quality of life crimes.
"If you're willing to attest that [clubs] are making unreasonable noise, we will issue them summonses," the commanding officer of the 6th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Brandon del Pozo, told half a dozen Meatpacking District residents who said they're losing sleep because of late-night rowdiness.
"The noise is interrupting my sleep two or three nights a week," he said.
Weinstein's neighbors said they feel the bass beat of area clubs in their homes every weekend and that drunken clubgoers fight, vomit and urinate outside their homes.
The precinct, which issues about three dozen summonses for public urination on Friday and Saturday nights each week, is considering arresting people for the offense as a possible deterrent.
"That's not out of the question," del Pozo said. "We'll see if it gets to that."
Provocateur — the $5 million 18 Ninth Ave. club whose proprietor suggested that women wear heels at least five inches high to try to make it past the club's velvet rope — did not immediately respond to an inquiry about their efforts to control noise.
