Your Plan To Smoke Is Going Up In Smoke

0

If you plan to smoke in a park, beach, marina, boardwalk or a pedestrian plaza, don’t even think about it.

Tuesday, Mayor Bloomberg signed legislation that prohibits smoking in parks, beaches, marinas, boardwalks and pedestrian plazas. The smoking ban will go into effect in 90 days, on May 23.

If anyone decides to pop out a cigarette in these places and is caught, he or she will have to pay a $50 fine.

Considering our coverage area is one of the few places in Brooklyn that actually has all of those things – parks, beaches, marinas, boardwalks and pedestrian plazas (I just like saying the whole list) – could it hurt our area a little more than others? What do you think?
