It is not in the public interest or public convenience to issue another on-premise license in area already overwhelmed with 21 on-premise licenses within one block and 29 within 500 Ft. An additional license on Rivington Street between Essex and Norfolk, will negatively impact traffic from the Williamsburg Bridge and along Essex and Rivington streets.
