7-Eleven / Westminster Rack up $17K+ In Fines

7-Eleven New York City location7-Eleven and Westminster Management have racked up some major fines at their Avenue A location over 7-Eleven’s illegally placed AC and refrigeration units – over $17K to be exact!

Multiple NYC DOB complaints were filed last fall, like this one for the industrial sized AC Units placed 14 inches away from the residents bedroom windows – they turn on and off every 15 minutes! Another complaint was filed for a rooftop refrigeration unit which blocks access to a fire escape.
