Just remember – according to the mainstream media, Andrew Cuomo is the smart governor.
Nearly 90% of New York bars and restaurants didn’t make their rent last month:
Eighty-seven percent of bars, restaurants, nightclubs and event spaces in the five boroughs could not pay their full August rent, according to data from 457 businesses surveyed between Aug. 25 and Sept. 11, in a new study released Monday by the nonprofit NYC Hospitality Alliance.
It’s a 7 percentage-point increase from June and a four-point jump from July, darkening the dire picture for eateries desperately seeking relief following six months of partial — and in some cases total — closure due to COVID-19 shutdowns.
Some 34 percent of this group said they could not pay rent at all last month, and only 12.9 percent were able to meet full payments.
With winter coming up, and an administration of Karens running things, NYC’s restaurant and night life scene may just start looking like the proverbial “cold Omaha”.
Although Omaha is faring much better these days.
