While residents in his hometown of Nanuet, NY, were hunkering down to avoid corona, 21-year-old Matt Levine and his friends from Springfield College in Massachusetts hit up spring break in South Padre Island, Texas — and stayed there against the advice of his father, Peter Levine.
“I spoke with him every day and told him that maybe they should come home,” Peter, 52, told The Post.
“I was aggravated. The news here was getting worse and worse. Matt sent me pictures of him and his friends congregating outdoors and listening to live music. It’s the scene you would not want to be in.”
Finally, Peter told Matt and his buddies that they could not stay at the family home after the trip, as they’d planned.
“His grandparents live here and there is no need to expose them to god knows what he had been exposed to!”, Peter explained.
When the entourage arrived in New York, Peter refused to pick them up — “No chance!” he said — leaving the group to find a car service that would drive them to Nanuet. Once they arrived, Dad met them at the door, and blocked them from coming in.
“I love my son, but they were not sleeping here.”
I said: ‘If any of you have to pee, we have some bushes.”
