Say Good-Bye To Some of New York’s Most Beloved Restaurants

Say Good-Bye To Some of New York’s Most Beloved Restaurants

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he was “very concerned” about the “devastating” crime wave sweeping the Big Apple. He should be concern about the restaurants that have to close due to his restriction. With his three strike rule for restaurants and bars, I expect more to close. The sad part is there is no end in sight. No date has been given for a full reopening.

More than 100,000 small businesses in New York have closed permanently, yet our Mayor and Governor seem to care more about the protestors and their rights. After all they can march over bridges, set fires and distroy property and that seems to be ok. Not to mention the no social distancing!
