Report: 92% of Restaurants in NYC Could Not Make Rent in December

A Fox Business report has noted 92 percent of New York City restaurants could not pay their rent in December. The pandemic’s strict lockdowns in the city have led to widespread business closures, with many remaining locations in desperate need of help.

The Barstool Fund set up by Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports has stepped in to provide some relief, recognizing the demoralizing effects of long-term closures across the country. To date the Barstool Fund has raised over $35 million for struggling restaurants. However, the most helpful change would be a change in policy, reopening dining for business leaders to once again earn a living.

When you can only have outdoor dining in subzero New York temperatures, the city cannot expect its businesses to survive. The Barstool Fund’s $35 million to help these struggling business owners and their employees, but not enough to sustain the needs of city numerous restaurants.

 

Maybe the situation would look different if Mayor Bill de Blasio or Governor Andrew Cuomo had to stop taking a salary until restaurants reopened. Then they would discover COVID-19 is only one of many problems facing citizens. They not only need health; they need help, starting with the immediate reopening of businesses without restrictions.

Check out this interview Portnoy did with Fox News on the dire state of  restaurants in places run by Democrat overlords like Cuomo.

  1. If you still live in NY and are still a democrat, please stay there! After the oppression brutally forced on citizens of NYS, it is shocking that you have not recalled or impeached virtually every democrat still in office. If you and citizens in other democrat oppressed states don’t act… the only thing you have to fear is yourselves. It is still the law of the land that THE PEOPLE CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT!! WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOT RULED BY THE GOVERNMENT, WE ARE A COUNTRY RULED BY LAW THAT THE democrat party EITHER IGNORES OR UNCONSTITUTIONALLY PASSES ILLEGAL NEW LAWS ABD IGNORES THE MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES OF GOVERNMENT, THE SAFETY AND WELFARE OF CITIZENS.

  2. GET THE MAYOR AND THE GOVERNOR OFF THE BOOKS AND THROWN OUT….THEY ARE DEMS AND STUPID AND HE HAS THE ORDASITY TO EVEN MENTION TRUMP AND WHAT TRUMP DID FOR HIM….
    GET OUTTTTT…..CUOMO YOUR TIME IS UP YOU ARE AS DUMB AS THEY GET…AND PULL YOUR MAYOR OUT WITH YOU

  3. As I feared when this “plandemic” started last spring, it was a golden opportunity for government to see just how far they could go in controlling “their” people. The Dems/Commies will happily destroy businesses and allow millions of unemployed illegals to enter the country. Their goal is to have a majority of the population that is dependent on the government and will vote for them to get their vital handouts
