I will never visit New York ever as they are now making it where you cannot even smoke outside in public without being fined They do not have to worry about a $50 fine for me as they will never see a dime of mine and a lot of other pro-smokers tourism dollars. You can take that to the bank
"Smoking has long been illegal in New York City bars and restaurants, including open-air restaurants, as well as in public transit, workplaces, schools and stores, among other places. On May 23rd, New York also joined 500 other U.S. municipalities that have banned smoking in parks and public squares. Under the new law, smokers who light up anywhere in New York’s more than 1,700 parks and pedestrian plazas, or along its 22 kilometers of beaches, could face a $50 fine."
