The Fulton St stop, once also known as Broadway-Nassau, serves the Financial District of lower Manhattan. This area would famously clear out almost entirely after work hours. But in the years after 9/11, with NYC real estate demands going crazy, a lot more of a residential population has moved in. That's all well and good, but where can the Food Warriors get a good lunch around here?
This was in the news a few weeks ago, and now it's back. I think it's one of those things where the fact that it's been so widely reported on has become a story unto itself.
Hopefully this leads more people to investigate what goes on in the alleys behind Chinese restaurants, both for lulz purposes and for the sake of public safety.
The restaurant says the guy may have actually been defrosting the meat:
As to why anyone would be pounding the sidewalk with frozen slabs of meat, an inspector from the San Francisco Health Department paid a visit to Lucky River and said the worker was trying to defrost the meat.
KPIX checked out the exact portion of the sidewalk seen in the video and found it covered in blackened gum, cigarette butts, and foot-tracked bacteria of all gut-twisting varieties.
The owner of the restaurant told KPIX it was an isolated incident and that the meat was discarded and the cook has since been fired.
Food Warriors is the series where the Internets Celebrities ride the subway in New York, get off in different neighborhoods and ask people where's the best place to eat. Today they visit 59th Street to see if anyone has has any idea what restaurants are located nearby.
