Brooklyn malls restrict teen gatherings - But they require IDs of college students too.

NY Times article tells of Mall restriction on groups of teenagers.

"On Thursday, at an entrance on Flatbush Avenue, a guard asked Chaniece Faulkner, 20, of Canarsie, for identification. She handed over an ID from Monroe College, and her friend Sharivia Alford, 19, of Coney Island, showed one from Lehman College. Allowed to enter, they went straight to a McDonald’s.

Ms. Faulkner said she was not happy about having to show identification. Then again, she said, looking around the mall, “it’s calmer than usual.”
