From an "exclusive" in the Post today. The City forced the Hells Angels to remove the bar from its bench outside its East Third Street HQ. Per the Post:
The city cracked down on the club after The Post recently publicized its efforts to keep pedestrians off its pew, said the Angels' lawyer, Ron Kuby.
Only members had been given keys to unlock the bar so they could sit down.
Department of Transportation officials noted that the bench was on city property and the organization would now need a permit for it, Kuby said.
A DOT spokesman said the two sides are trying to work out a solution to keep the bench.
