ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A New York lawmaker has asked the state’s attorney general to investigate the permit process for pop-up parties, citing a Halloween gathering at a Superfund site in Brooklyn where all the contaminants haven’t even been identified yet.

Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, a Brooklyn Democrat, says he’s written to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman asking him to find out how that happened.

He says the pop-up party promotion company Cityfox was able to get New York City Department of Buildings and State Liquor Authority permits in just a few days for a Halloween bash with 3,500 people at the former Nuhart Plastic Manufacturing Plant.

He says the cleanup process hasn’t begun yet at this state Superfund site, and parties like this are common in Brooklyn because of its abandoned industrial buildings.
