NYC Says No More Co-Mingling Of Inside A/C and Outside Air

TN Note: NY City won’t let any store throw open its doors on hot summer days to give cool-air relief to passers-by. Gotta fight global warming and save on air conditioning bills.

You’re trudging down a city block in sweltering August heat, when suddenly you get a breath of relief — a momentary, blissful breeze from a store blasting its AC through open doors.

Take one wild guess who hates it? Mayor de Blasio.

“It’s always been a pet peeve of mine,” he said this week as he signed a law forcing stores and restaurants to close doors and windows while air conditioners are running. Fines can run to $1,000.
