Mayor Mike Bloomberg is famous for curbing the city’s smoking, soda, and greasy food habits with legislation, but New Yorkers are now wondering whether Bloomberg has set his next target on a different vice: alcohol.
A 50-question survey focusing on New Yorkers’ drinking habits is being formulated by the Department of Health, and will be used to try and understanding alcohol use and abuse in the city through telephone surveys, according to the mayor’s office.
“The focus of what they ask is about underage drinking. They’re working on the survey.
There is no legislation at this time, they’re working to get a handle on what is happening primarily with underage drinking,” said a spokesman for Bloomberg.
