QUEENS, NY — Four organizers were charged after authorities shut down an illegal party in Cunningham Park early Sunday that boasted more than 110 attendees, a DJ, food service and so-called “hookah attendants,” according to the New York City Sheriff’s Office.

A team of deputy sheriffs busted the party about 2 a.m. Sunday after spotting the event on social media and tracking down its location inside the Eastern Queens park, according to officials and news reports.

Revelers had been driven to the secret location, which was decorated with torches and strings of lights and featured DJ booths, open bars and hookah lounges, as per report.
