Protest Over Staten Island Coronavirus Restrictions
Mac’s Public House on Staten Island became a flashpoint after the tavern’s manager was arrested on Tuesday for ignoring Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions which mandate a 10 p.m. curfew at bars.
“The mayor and the governor — look around. Look around, here. Look what you made us do. Look what you made good hard-working, tax-paying Americans do.” Protester: “You’re killing us.” “It seems that at the worst times is when I’m the proudest to be a New Yorker. Last time I felt this proud was, unfortunately, during Hurricane Sandy, when all of us came together as a community, walking down in New Dorp Beach, all helping each other. And this is exactly what happened then is happening now. We take back our community. We’re all together. We take back Staten Island, tonight.” [cheering] Crowd: “U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”
