"Welcome to New-fin'-York. You don't have a RIGHT to open a bar wherever you want. You have to ask the community--or at least the community board. So if you plan your hotel megacomplex so that the outdoor bar part is up against 60 apartments, odds are the community is going to be pissed. The protest isn't about whether they get a liquor license--they will--it's about whether they can have an outdoor bar next to 60 people's bedrooms. And whether they can have an entrance across from a senior home, which needs ambulances like seriously at least twice a day." [Cooper Square Hotel Protest Scares Off Developer?]
