Video from the scene shows large groups of partygoers engaged in fistfights and hair-pulling battles, tackling each other to the ground. Crowds gathered to watch the chaos unfold, with many pulling out their phones to record the Lower Manhattan showdowns.

Shards of smashed glass littered the ground where people walked barefoot after losing their shoes during the altercations.

Before the violence overshadowed the celebrations, separate footage captured multiple women twerking on top of a vehicle and one person grinding against a light pole. As night fell, the NYPD played a loudspeaker recording declaring Washington Square Park’s closure, ordering revelers to leave the site and causing further tensions between police and partygoers.

It was not immediately clear if any arrests were made as a result of the fighting.
