Would you eat at a restaurant where both the garbage and the food received daily for all restaurants were in the very same place?
I will let some of the photos tell the story:
And they have taken him up on that. (I will address the blocking of the fire escapes in another post although to those of you who live in the rear of both #143 and #2020 you can see by these photos that your legal right to a second egress out of the building in the event of a fire has been compromised).
On any given day the alley is full of open food crates, left unattended for hours; or restaurant workers shifting through their restaurant laundry (this gives the term “dirty laundry" an entirely new meaning); or even nastier yet: open food pallets.
