New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA) Introduces Interactive Online Map
(News Brief by Shanken News Daily) The New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA) has introduced an interactive online map of the state’s licensed liquor retailers, bars and restaurants, which number about 55,000 venues. The map, which will be updated daily on the NYSLA website (www.sla.ny.gov), will help new licensees by allowing them to explore potential locations’ proximities to other licensees, as well as comply with distance requirements related to licensed establishments near churches and schools, according to state senator Daniel Squadron, who supported the project. The map also includes individual locations’ disciplinary histories and pending license applications.
