Now open at 58 East Broadway, between Market and Catherine streets — five blocks from the original — the new Winnie’s shares much of the same DNA as the original, just in a new location. It’s from the same owners, mother Winnie Mui and her children Jaime and Teddy, and the basics are all there: karaoke, the famous punch, red booths, and some bar food.

Police said the man is about 30-years-old, 5-foot 10-inches tall with a full bear. In surveillance footage, the man is wearing a dark-colored backwards baseball cap, a black coat and sunglasses.

Small businesses facing eviction could qualify for free legal help under a proposal the City Council will review.

Manhattan Councilman Mark Levine plans to introduce a bill Wednesday that would provide help to struggling businesses, he told The Wall Street Journal . The bill would be modeled after the Right to Counsel bill, a city effort that provides legal aid to residential tenants facing eviction.

The bill would apply to independently owned and operated businesses as well as owners whose household income is below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.
