No benefit to noisy bars
To The Editor:
Re Liquor, not milk, brings jobs (Letter by Christopher Molinari, March 17 23):
Mr. Molinari misses the point, like a smoker oblivious to the fact that his rights end when they interfere with my rights.
If his neighbor chooses to be tucked in at 9 p.m., how does that affect Molinari unless Molinari considers his bar an extension of his neighbors apartment. There are enough residents who have had bars inflict noise on them as if the bars had eminent domain in apartments they are paying damn good money to live in. At least a resident is paid to move out with eminent domain.
Perhaps the offending bars should pay affected tenants rents and a class-action lawsuit is called for.
Jobs are lost? What about those who are kept awake until 4 a.m.? What economic benefit is that? What is the social benefit to hard-working people of having to deal with this quality-of-life nightmare?
