Anti-Smoking Law Set to Choke NYC’s Spirit

02.02.11 Bucky Turco

The multicultural City Council, with the urging of Mike Bloomberg, a Jewish mayor, is adopting Nazi legislation and basically outlawing public smoking in a vote that’s expected to pass this afternoon. The law will prohibit people from lighting up at parks, pedestrian plazas, beaches and even on Coney Island’s storied boardwalks. But don’t despair too much smokers, it’s still perfectly legal to enjoy a cigarette at home or on sidewalks. UPDATE: It passed, 36-12.
