NEW YORK, N.Y.—New York City has set its sights on a cultural establishment that embodies an emblematic tradition in the Big Apple: pizzerias. Specifically, restaurateurs who make pizza using coal- and wood-burning ovens installed before 2016.
Earlier this year, New York City announced a rule mandating that such ovens be fitted with expensive scrubbers designed to reduce soot, in an attempt to limit air pollution.
But is the city’s rule effective? And what’s the take from shop owners themselves?
