Washington Avenue Armory events on hold again

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The Washington Avenue Armory has lost its permission to host dance parties for the second time.

The cease and desist order was immediate, causing an event scheduled for Friday to be called off at the last minute.

The armory tells NEWS10 the order says they are violating a November agreement that allowed the parties to continue.

The agreement came in November after events at the armory had been on hold after a large crowd at a form party in October turned unruly leading to three officers sustaining injures and seven people being arrested. 

Following that incident, the armory's spokesman Michael Corts explained they'd changed ticketing procedures and entry policies.

"What happened last Thursday happened, and that's why we're addressing those safety issues by implementing our changes and taking it seriously," said Corts in a previous interview with NEWS10.
