New Yorkers may be reduced to hiding in the bushes to smoke if new rules go through on lighting up outdoors.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s health commissioner, Thomas Farley, declared Monday he wants to take the war on smokers to the city’s beaches and parks.
Smoking has been illegal in offices, train stations and other indoor public places since 2003, forcing the Big Apple’s approximately one million smokers to head outdoors.
But Farley’s proposal to “expand smoke-free spaces to include city parks and public beaches” would mean there were even fewer places to light up.
