Fontana’s Owners Working with Concerned Resident
Last week, we wrote about an anonymous Eldridge Street resident who claimed Fontana’s patrons were continually soiling the adjacent building entrance. Our tipster was fed up with “having to avoid stepping into a puddle of urine” while trying to get home, and wrote to us seeking advice on how to curb the problem. The story truly struck a chord among those in the community, eliciting dozens of reader responses (still counting!) and a healthy conversation.

The owners of Fontana’s, who are also seventeen-year residents of the Lower East Side, were concerned and immediately contacted us to see if they could help rectify the situation. Known for working closely with the neighbors, their team wanted to constructively discuss the matter with the resident.
The two parties are now in touch, working on possible solutions.
