NYC Foam Ban (Effective Jan 1, 2019)
Food service establishments,
stores, mobile food commissaries and manufacturers may not possess,
sell, or offer for use single-service Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam
food service articles or loose fill packaging, such as “packing peanuts”
in New York City beginning in 2019.
Small businesses with less
than $500,000 in gross income for the most recent tax year and
non-profits may apply for hardship exemptions from the Department of
Small Business Services (SBS) if they can prove that the purchase of
alternative products not composed of EPS would create a financial
hardship. For more information, please visit
This Asian-infusion eatery
offers chicken dishes prepared in a variety of ways. Try the pollo
saltado, a Peruvian stir-fry with chicken, fries, rice and beans. Wings,
sandwiches and platters are also available. The restaurant offers a
selection of beers and wine.
Restaurant owners in Chinatown
said this further pushes their already struggling businesses onto the
edge. They are vying to making changes in order to keep their heads
above water. Other than raising prices, some are coming up with
innovative ideas such as offering employees some shares in the business
so that they can be turned into “owners” and exempted from the wage law.
Second through twelfth grade
students attending public, independent, charter or parochial schools (or
homeschooled) in New York City and East and West of Hudson Watersheds
are invited to create original art and compose poetry that reflects an
appreciation for shared water resources.
