For the last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been shaking his fist at restaurants and bars that continue to break the state’s COVID-19 guidelines, particularly after videos went viral last weekend showing people partying on Steinway Street in Astoria.
Earlier this week, four businesses in the NYC area have had their liquor licenses suspended. And today, Cuomo announced that 37 violations were given out to businesses in the city this week, and six more bars and restaurants have had their liquor licenses suspended as a result.
During a press conference on Friday, Cuomo said that the State Liquor Authority, in conjunction with the State Police, went out Thursday night “primarily” on the Lower East Side, as well as Astoria and Long Island, to check on places and give out violations.
Among the latest to lose their license is the uber-posh Cipriani Downtown. The full list is at the link.
