MTV VMA cast is on private stoop without property owner's permission and a light is pointed in their direction

Location: 
Dean Street near 6th Avenue
When: 
August 25, 2013 - 8:52pm

The MTV VMA cast stood on the stoop of a house near 6th Avenue in order to get a better view.   A light is set up in the uplink parking lot and pointed directly toward the stoop.  (see attached photos).
 
A few of the people on the stoop were neighbors who had the permission of the property owner.  The remaining group were all teenagers who the property owner wanted to leave.  I spoke to several from New Jersey and Queens.  They said they had come to be part of the cast for the VMAs.  One explained she was "wait-listed," apparently meaning she wasn't paid but was still let onto the block for event.
 
On behalf of the property owner I called the VMA hotline and left a message.  No one came to clear the stoop out.
