Restaurant owner Matthew Glazier said in the court papers,
"The entryway to the Grand Central Terminal eatery is being overrun by bums, thanks to a long-term construction project on Vanderbilt Avenue that has created a festering enclave of vagrants."
Glazier claims that business has gotten so bad that the restaurant's revenue has dropped 24 percent and the MTA, who leases the space to the steakhouse, hasn't done a thing to solve the problem. The MTA has been working the past year on a project that would waterproof the station.
“It looks like ‘Gotham’ out there,” steakhouse GM Stephan Dorian told the New York Post.
Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, who is seeking unspecified damages, pleads with the court to "save this great New York restaurant, a beacon of Grand Central’s revival from the landlord’s unconscionable conduct."
