Skip to comments.Cuomo signs NYC restaurants' death warrant: Governor says he won't allow city to reopen indoor dining because it 'doubles amount of bars and there's no one to enforce the rules' - so how come other major cities are managing?

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday said he would not reopen indoor dining in New York City despite the infection rate being less than one percent for weeks in a row now because, he said, it would double the number of bars currently open and there is no one to enforce social distancing standards.
The reasoning came after a conglomerate of bar and restaurant owners sued the state for $2billion in damages, claiming they were being unfairly shackled and stopped from making money.
New York City - which has more bars and restaurants than any other city in the US - remains the only metropolis in the world that is yet to resume indoor dining.

Vote stupid, pay the price.
The employees that work in these restaurants are THOUSANDS and I will bet many will be voting a whole lot differently this year!! GEEZE where the hell is AOC after all she would have been jobless but NOW I guess she doesnt give a damn!!!
My wife and I went out to dinner for our anniversary Saturday night in Sugar Land, TX. I’m glad we didn’t have some local dictator telling us what we can or cannot do as the Noo Yawkas do.
I know people in NYC that don’t even cook or have the ability to cook at their place. How or what are all these people eating?
Frank Sinatra be spinning like a centrifuge.
Even Wuhan has fully reopened. No masks, no social distancing.
I don’t think NYC will ever be the same.
This really is madness.
There has to be many more than one set of NY state bars run by - certain organizations.
Perhaps these organizations have considered making the corrupt *ss governor an offer he can’t refuse.
We promise to look the other way.
And to give those bars BIG BUSINESS.
Yeah, wouldn't want the prole's running around without enforcers to keep an eye on them. [eyeroll] Who works for whom again?
Thank the Mayor for the wonderful job he is doing and oh yes politics
And Cuomo thought Trump was killing New York, You can’t fix Stupid and some people just need killin.
Who is he favouring? Somebody is getting rich off this.
did not realize that the Nursing-Home-Killer Kuomo
had already run out of elderly to kill by forced infection.
By tomorrow it will be Trump’s fault.
This is the modern equivalent of prohibition.
New Yorkers are _very_ resourceful, and I would expect to see hundreds of black market restaurants/bars in the basements of buildings during the winter.
Word of mouth will get the customers, and organized crime will give “protection” and pay off the cops.
Cold sandwiches from the Pret A Manger.
They are ubiquitous in NYC.
Anyone find the fact that NYC doesn’t have ‘enforcers’ funny?? LOL
That being said, sounds like to me that restaurants ought to go ahead and reopen; Cuomo just admitted the city doesn’t have the manpower to shut it down!
Does he really think this will gain votes for Democrats?
Is he really this stupid, or is he just evil, or is he both?
Keep this up and Trump might win NY!
