It looks like the NYC Department of Health has shut down another Henry Street eatery, as Great Wall [60 Henry Street] appears to have been shut down. No one answered the phone there at 5pm this evening. BHB commenter Nick reports:
I just noticed that DOH closed down Great Wall for operating without a permit. Too bad because I liked that place. Why is it so hard for restaurants in Brooklyn Heights to operate within DOH guidelines?
As another commenter, The Huh?, adds and we’ve discovered Great Wall racked up 58 DOH violation points during its last inspection on February 22. On the Hit Parade ewwwwwwwwwww:
1.) Other General Violation
2.) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin infestation exist.
3.) Sanitized equipment or utensil, including in-use food dispensing utensil, improperly used or stored.
