NYPD Shutters Welcome to the Johnson’s in Nightlife Crackdown
For cops on the weekend nightlife beat in the Seventh Precinct, it’s essentially like shooting fish in a barrel. There are just so many establishments to randomly raid. This week brings news of yet another shutter. Last night, the NYPD shut down neighborhood mainstay Welcome to the Johnson’s. As with other Lower East Side bar closures of late (Foundation being the most recent), Johnson’s was cited for illegally serving to minors.

It’s our guess that before long, pretty much every bar on the Lower East Side will have been shuttered by the NYPD for underage drinking.
