Denny's New York City Plan Backfires After Condo Board Rips 'Drunk' Culture, 'Party Atmosphere'


A Manhattan condo board is doing everything it can to keep a proposed Denny's from moving into its building. After all, the board says, wild types visit those sort of establishments.

The condo board of the building, which is located in the city's Financial District, has gone as far as to file a $10 million lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court to stop the restaurant from moving into the building's retail space, according to the Real Deal, a New York City real estate news site.

"Denny’s is a fast food chain synonymous with a late night party atmosphere, as well as drunk, disorderly, violent and criminal conduct," read the legal complaint, the Real Deal reports.

The restaurant originally planned to serve wine and beer, according to DNA Info. But after receiving dozens of written complaints, Denny's eventually withdrew its application for a full liquor license, Grub Street reports.

Denny's did not immediately return calls from The Huffington Post requesting comment. This would be company's first location in New York City, according to Grubstreet.

The building, where an apartment is currently on the market for $1.45 million, is located in a commercial neighborhood where there are a number of food establishments that serve wine, beer and other spirits. The building is located near the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge and is neighbors with Pace University and City Hall. Zuccotti Park, the main site of the Occupy Wall Street protests, is only six blocks away.
