No relief is in sight for New York City restauranteurs. Governor Cuomo adamently refuses to lift the ban on indoor dining. This will likely sound the death knell for thousands of struggling establishments. Ironically the Governor’s own statistics show that restaurant dining is responsible for less than 2 percent of covid cases. The great majority comes from inhome gatherings. This is further evidence of his arbitrary rule. King Andrew dictates from on high. No thought is given to the adverse consequences of his mandates. The dining culture is an integral part of the New York experience. It is being decimated by Cuomo’s actions. Mom and Pop operators face financial ruin. Hundreds of thousands of restaurant workers have been laid off. As voters they will long remember the Governor’s heartlessness.
