New York City Restaurants Suffer 60 Percent Loss Thanks to de Blasio's COVID Rules

Restaurants in New York City have suffered up to 60 percent loss due to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s harsh COVID restrictions.

Many restaurant owners now say that at this point they won’t survive even if the restrictions are lifted, according to the PostMillennial.

“We don’t have the money here to survive without the help of our landlord, [who] has been very supportive and has been giving us breaks on the rent, but without our landlord, we would not be in business,” commented Fergal Burke, the owner of an Irish pub and restaurant in the Times Square area.

“Our business is definitely down 50. I’m going to say 60 percent. There are just no people coming into the restaurant. They have a fear of being asked for vaccines,” continued Burke, adding that many potential customers blame his business instead of the government for the vaccine mandates, according to The Epoch Times.

“They’re being refused, and they get a resentment against us. They don’t get a resentment against Bill de Blasio or Biden or whoever is mandating us to check for this. It comes as a personal rejection.”

“We don’t want this mandate, [and] we want nothing to do with this. I mean, how is that fair in New York City that the trains are jammed with people with a silly mask on? They’re not being mandated to show anything, and yet they’re coming against the heart of the city.

De Blasio has just about wiped out New York’s once famous restaurant industry.

And, no, it wasn’t the virus that did it. It was de Blasio’s left-wing, autocratic rules.
