Authorities said on Tuesday that hundreds of people showed up at a rental house known as the backdrop of MTV’s “Jersey Shore”, prompting police to disband the gathering that violated the state’s health code.
YouTube personality Nelk Boys was watching Monday night at a rental property at 1209 Boardwalk in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
The house is known as the stars of JWoww, Sweetheart, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, Ronnie and Snooki, “Jersey Shore,” which ran for six seasons between 2009 and 2012.

At the height of the Mande’s Gateway, more than a thousand people were out of the jam, thanks to the lamp of Anthony Vaz, Mayor of Seaside, who is already taking advantage of the hard-working reputation, resulting in his “Jersey Shore” Community developed. “
“We will not tolerate this or such things that will disrupt an image that we are trying to correct,” Vaz told NBC News on Tuesday. “It was shocking to me.”
On Monday night, Nelluck Boys was using the house to celebrate the launch of a website that sells the group’s branded apparel.
The group posted Instagram footage of the incident and opened the front door to show police lights and hundreds of people outside, most of whom appeared to be tightly packed and wearing masks.
The owner of the house, Daniel Merck, was in the background of that video and appeared to tell his tenants that the party was to end.
“Go get your s —, get out of here guys,” Merck said. “time to go.”
Merck told NBC News on Tuesday that he had rented his house to YouTube celebrities believing it was only to be used for a small gathering to launch the group’s site.
“He has a lot of passionate fans and he follows them,” Merck said. “I wasn’t ready for it, the city wasn’t ready for it.”
No one was arrested or cited immediately, but Merck said he hoped some sort of civil penalty would come his way.
“There’s definitely going to be a panacea out there,” he said. “I’m definitely going to be in trouble for this.”
Vaz said that Mark may have his license to rent property drawn during Monday night’s incident, and the mayor promised to cover police costs by the Nelluck Boys.
Representatives for the New Jersey Governor’s Office, the state’s Department of Health and the Nelk Boys could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
