DNA Info: Second Avenue Businesses See Restaurant Week Boost
DNA Info's Jill Colvin sat down with Sen. Krueger, Borough President Scott Stringer, Assemblyman Dan Quart, and Community Board 8 Chair Nick Viest as they enjoyed dinner at Doppio Senso to support Second Avenue Restaurant Week:
Local officials, who gathered to show support for the effort with a meal at DoppioSenso Wednesday, said that, while the MTA has gotten better at minimizing its impact on the neighborhood, residents and businesses are still suffering.
"You find a lot of restaurants that are literally a construction zone," said State Sen. Liz Krueger, while munching on fried calamari inside the candle-lit restaurant, where she was joined by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, Assemblyman Dan Quart, and Community Board 8 Chair Nicholas Viest.
