The Drying of NYC

NPR takes on the community boards and the 2am closings in today's "Morning Edition". In three minutes they interview MePa revelers, an aggravated community type, and a nightlife lawyer. One takeaway: "The community boards have wielded so much influence over the past few years that now less than 10% of liquor license applicants in Jones' neighborhood even ask to stay open past 2. To some people that makes the city feel less like New York." [NPR]
