虽然福奇博士在华盛顿特区与特朗普政府在大流行期间存在分歧,但他84岁的堂兄倾向于去拉丰塔纳:斯塔滕岛意大利餐厅(La Fontana:Staten Island意大利餐厅),因为限制措施对餐饮业造成了濒临死亡的控制。WJV世界播

'In the beginning, I thought he was fabulous, but then a few times he flip-flopped on different things. He had us all locked down at a tremendous rate,' Joe explained to The Post. WJV世界播


'They should have loosened things up when it was slowing down in the summer. Everything else was loosening up except the restaurant business.' WJV世界播


As the pandemic edges towards the holiday season, the New York City's restaurant industry has struggled to stay afloat under the financial strain. WJV世界播


Several factors, including a plunge in tourism and limited capacity seating inside restaurants, has forced revenues to falter. WJV世界播


In an interview with Market Watch,New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer noted the 90 per cent decline in tourism in the last quarter of fiscal year in 2020. WJV世界播


'In the midst of the pandemic, we are starting to realize that our 62 million [annual] tourist visitors will be no more in the short term,' Stringer told Market Watch. WJV世界播

斯特林格告诉市场观察(Market Watch),在大流行期间,我们开始意识到,我们的6200万(年度)游客在短期内将不复存在。WJV世界播

'We haven’t lost our mojo as a city, but the pandemic has curbed what we can do to attract people from all over the world.' WJV世界播


And the drop in tourism during the pandemic is on course to collide with the changing seasons, which would likely see customers bypass outdoor seating options as temperatures drop. WJV世界播

'At the high end, that could result in a permanent loss of nearly 12,000 of the City’s restaurants and bars, and nearly 159,000 industry jobs, although the opening of new restaurants would mitigate some of these losses,' the report reads. WJV世界播
