In recent years, the number of venues the New York State Liquor Authority has authorized has dwindled down. Last New Years’ Eve, there were 249. The year before, 305 with 2009, only 165 permits were issued. Seemingly, before 2009, 388(2008) and 439(2007), maybe legislation was involved in diminishing the overall number of all-night activities.
This NYE, the State Liquor Authority will not be granting 24-hour liquor licenses to ANYONE. Pretty big deal. Good luck venue owners.
