"the removal of Pinky’s Space outdoor shed allegedly caused damages of “at least $90,000,” with a profit loss estimated to be $528,000. This figure has jumped up from initial reporting by the New York Post in which Pinky’s stated outdoor shed damages were $25,000, later amending it to $50,000"

What court would buy into these nonsensical figures? 90K for a couple of mannequins and a disco ball?

So, Pinky's business model now is to get money by suing NYC? I have formed quite an opinion of them, and it's not a favorable one!

Hey, if Pinky's keeps inflating its numbers so bizarrely, it'll soon be a multi-million dollar corporation!

These Pinky's people are a JOKE. The shed was a BLESSING you had for years, it's still public space, you did not pay for It, and your restaurant fits like 3 people, what the hell.

It never made sense that Pinky’s shed was 30 ft wide. The Open Restaurants instructions showed that structures should not exceed the width of their storefront. I wonder if by suing the city they’ll end up inviting fines and auditing by calling attention to themselves.
