Uptown’s La Marina Is Suing The City For $2 Million Dollars In Damages

Eater NY reports that aligned Washington Heights party spot La Marina is suing the city for $2 million in damages.

The restaurant is alleging the restaurant lost a good chunk of its business when its landlord, NYC’s Parks and Recreation Department, prohibited valet parking and ticketed beach events on the premises as of last July, according to a lawsuit.

La Marina claims the ban was purposely placed in the “height of the summer season” to ensure “maximum damage,” and that ownership wasn’t given a chance to oppose the ban. The restaurant opened in 2012 on city-owned land under a deal with the parks department and has since been involved in a series of scandals — most recently, it was the center of a multi-agency raid in July, which found the restaurant was unsanitary, allowed underage drinking, and violated several liquor laws.
