I think they closed in response to the NY Post article and the spotlight it shone on them. But unless some were forcibly shut down by the authorities, I think they're all back up and running. My neighbor made a wedding in Ateres Chaya earlier this week. The invitation specified a specific door to enter through. There's a wedding in my shul at Kol Yaakov tonight, and another one tomorrow in BP (not sure where). I'm not going to any of them, but it's clear that Cuomo's threats were empty. I'm curious who called in FDNY to BP thought.
Got an invitation to a wedding tonight in BK stating and I'm paraphrasing "Please enter from this entrance, and that the doors will be locked from 6-9 PM"

We made a chasunah in BP two weeks ago and that night Cuomo's threats were being carried out. The manager of the hall was very nervous, showing us texts he was getting from managers of other BP halls (I believe four got shut down that night). Ours was not impacted. I heard that the next week at least one or two BP halls were either closed or not having indoor seating for meals. Possibly Cuomo lost interest and they started up again, but have not been following since.

Plenty were open the whole time. And pretty sure they're all open now.

I was a wedding last week where they said the same thing but I don't believe the doors were ever locked.

There was actually someone taking temperatures at the door.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Not BP but a strong community response:






Now if only they would ban large weddings...

Wedding season is over.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

2 weeks pause means the wedding season is over?

It's at least 3 weeks until after sukkos. Now would definitely not be the time to talk about weddings.

I hear that, although talking about it the day weddings restart is also not an option, and three weeks is ample time to make alternate arrangements.
From now til weddings restart there aren't so many days that they can make that announcement if they do want to...

The people planning weddings definitely would want to hear what will be in 3 weeks.
And I don't think situation on the ground will be better by then.
