Bushwick Bars Given Midnight Curfew on Sundays by Community Board

Suddenly, CB4 in Bushwick seems to going through a lot of the growing pains that CB1 went through 10 years ago or more. Around that time, CB1 tried to institute a moratorium on all new liquor licenses in the Northside (yes, nightlife was once primarily restricted to the Northside). That had no effect, and it is pretty much guaranteed that Sunday curfews will have the same effect.

If CB4 wants to control hours or other aspects of operations, they need to negotiate those restrictions with new licensees and get those restrictions into the methods of operation of the liquor licenses. Just say no doesn’t work with SLA.
