Why should you care about the smoking ban in public areas in NYC? You might not smoke. I don't. I'm almost 3 years nicotine clean.
But what's next? I've said it 1,000 times and I'll say it again...you are incredibly short-sighted if you support bans like the current one in NYC.
New York City extends smoking ban to parks, boulevards
What habits/preferences do YOU have that are undesirable? Soda? Fast food? Fast bikes? Contact sports?
Who will stand with you when they try to take your vice-of-choice away?
I will. Because I believe treading on people's person freedoms is a TRAVESTY...even if it makes my hair and clothes smell.
