High Number of Corona Restaurants Have Low Health Dept. Grades: Report

Sept. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Flushing and Corona have a high number of restaurants with low health department ratings in comparison to other Queens neighborhoods, according to a new report.

About 13.8 percent of North Corona’s restaurants have a B or C grade and 10.7 percent of Corona’s restaurants have a B or C grade, while 12.4 percent of Flushing’s restaurants have a B or C grade according to the report published Monday by Renthop.

Ozone Park has the worst restaurant ratings in the borough, with 18 percent of its total number restaurants having a B or C grade. None of the Lindenwood-Howard Beach area’s 51 restaurants have B or C grades, making it the best.

Renthop also looked at restaurants’ health code violations, including violations related to mice and roaches which have increased in recent years. Queens saw the largest increase with 3,138 violations in 2018, up 70.5 percent from 1,841 in 2017.

The report is based on data from New York City’s restaurant inspection results from 2016 to this month, September 2019.

Of course

The racist maga loving “inspectors” have obvious deep racism in themselves, a neighborhood that’s majority Hispanic to them must be an annoyance, all NYC inspectors should have bias training now!

The grades reflect the demographics

What an ignorant comment. The health department has basic standards that restaurants need to meet to earn each grade, there’s nothing political about it.

Face up to the fact that Hispanics bring their third world habits with them…that’s why Corona is largely a dump.

ANOTHER racist Trump Lover?!

You don’t know what a “third world” country is lmao. Is Spain a third world country?

Why are the loudest people the least informed ones?


Spain may not be a third world nation but Mexico, Honduras, Peru, Guatemala Dominican Republic India, Bangladesh and Ecuador are. Very few around here are from Spain.


You’re obviously blind. Most of these places are filthy dumps and rightfully being forced to clean up their acts. You’re the one who appears racist.


@of course- So your view is Hispanic restaurant owners lack the ability to bring their restaurants into compliance with NYC health codes and inspectors should be trained to tailor their inspections to meet this deficiency.


It’s just thinking like DeBlasios in action, keep lowering standards and the so called bar instead of raising them.
