1. The Dept. of Health does not close places down for trip hazards. That would be the Dept. or Buildings or Consumer Affairs. You have to have real problems to be forced to close. Usually this is associated with chronic rat or roach infestations or severly unsanitary kitchen conditions. One word describes this – GROSS.

  3. Finally after I submitted multiple complaints – on Saturday May 20- Chanson Le Salon removed the sidewalk platform that DOT issued them a violation for and told them the platform is prohibited and gave them 5 days to remove it. This was the platform my friends who uses a Walker almost fell on.
