The Health Department has shuttered venerable Ruby’s Bar & Grill on the Coney Island boardwalk following a bizarre incident on Saturday, which I reported in this week’s Observer.
A cop on the scene summed it up thusly: “One guy was taking a leak, the floor partially collapsed, and he fell 10 feet.”
Police closed down the bar soon after the accident on Saturday. It reopened Sunday. Then the health inspector closed it down again yesterday, according to a well-placed source on the boardwalk.
