A large group of men broke out fighting in front of St. Marks Market on St. Marks Place (btw 2nd and 3rd Ave) early Sunday morning. It was a loud and violent scene. A passerby who recorded the altercation doesn't know what caused the fight, but believes it began after one man made advances on the girlfriend of another. Seems about right, and fits with New York City's rich history of street fighting.
The person who recorded the video (seen below) told NYC The Blog that two individuals were hurt badly: "One had his face completely swollen and purple, while the second had a nasty gash on the side of his head and was bleeding a lot." Police and ambulance did not arrive, and the fight was eventually broken up by friends and bystanders.
