Last year things got too rowdy, so the city attempted to dissuade possible mooners, broadcasting that the city was "saying 'NO' to crack". The moonings have continued unabated, and have their own official website, http://www.moonamtrak.org/, which is officially SFW and includes train times for your convenience.
