Luxury Manhattan Condo Owners Sue To Block Opening Of "Immoral" Denny's

New York City is set to get its first Denny's outlet, but not if the owners of the luxury downtown Manhattan condos who would live upstairs can help it.  Citing their building's bylaws against "immoral and offensive" businesses, the owners have filed suit.
Fearing an invasion of drunken rowdies with the munchies, residents of a swanky downtown condo building have filed a lawsuit grand-slamming a plan to put a Denny’s restaurant in their building. In a Manhattan Supreme Court suit filed Thursday, attorneys for the condo board at 150 Nassau St. portrayed “America’s diner” as unfit for their upscale address — where a 3-bedroom unit sold for $3.5 million in May. The suit contends Denny’s restaurants are a “haven for violence, disorderly conduct, and alcohol-drenched patrons.” In addition to blocking the project, the condo board is demanding at least $5 million in damages, including legal fees.
Currently the closest Denny's location to the city is about 20 miles away on Long Island.
