The 11th St Bar is 'tucked away' -- BECAUSE IT DOESN'T BELONG THERE. The 11st Bar's 'cozy back room' -- where they have their live amplified music SHARES A COMMON WALL WITH A RESIDENCE.... they're not supposed to.
How'd they get there then? Well, Bob Perl of Tower Brokerage and Paul Hinkley (private engineer -- who is now if federal prison for 10 yrs) committed FELONY FRAUD in their Public Assembly Permit, and lied on their NYS Liquor application. They were found by two Judges from the Environmental Control Board to be ""ILLEGALLY ZONED"" and ORDERED IT CLOSED.
So, why are they still there?
Corruption of course. And the back room...the resident on the other side of that raw-brick wall has lived there for 22 yrs........ yet, the 11th St Bar, a veritable public nuisance did not even have a Cert. of Occupancy for 12 yrs.
Hmm.. how'd all this happen? Do you think the fact the DA Robert Morgenthau had his re-election fund raiser parties at the sister bar (the Ear Inn--directly used in the fraud), owned by the same owners had anything to do with it? Or the fact that the Community Board is compromised by having a Bronx DA (ALEXANDRA MILITANO) chairing 7 committees, including zoning and SLA...and saw the documents of fraud, AND KNOWS THE BAR WAS FOUND BY LAW TO BE ILLEGALLY ZONED-- TWICE! -- AND STILL -- never put the Bar on the Public Agenda for comment -- as they're supposed to before AUTOMATICALLY APPROVING RENEWAL OF THEIR LIQUOR LICENSE, as it has always done with this public nuisance.
OH - By the way -- the Office of Professional Discipline concurs -- and sent the municipal engineers of DOB for criminal investigation.... so what happened... well, the DOI is part of the CITY corruption..... not to mention that the NYSLA investigator John Watts, who, after his investigation said he was going to recommend revocation of the 11th St Bar's liquor license..... then became a deponent against the most directly impacted victim of the bar... yes.. that's right... the POLICE PROTECT THE 11TH ST BAR, AND HAVE CONSPIRED WITH THE BAR, AND WITH THE DA HAVE RETALIATED against the most impacted victim of this public nuisance
Any penny you spend in this public nuisance exploits the person on the other side of the back-room wall, who has already been harmed enough by this criminal enterprise.
This bar is criminal, and it is it by law, a public nuisance.
Got ethics? SKIP THIS ONE -- You'll be doing a good deed
Cons: Public Nuisance
