BBC NEWS | Americas | Bid to thin out NY fast-food outlets

Local politicians have been getting smart: Bid to thin out NY fast-food outlets.

This would be very exciting. There are so many fast food restaurants in NYC, and most are in underprivileged areas. The opponents of the bill say that people will just travel to the fast food in other neighborhoods. I disagree. People in those neighborhoods accept what is in front of them, but not in a derogatory way. They are busy with working and keeping themselves on top of things. Whatever there is to eat is what they eat. I think their seeking out of fast food is out of convention, and comfort. If they were presented with alternative food as convention, they would probably eat less fast food. Or, the fast foods would become healthier so that they could meet the health standards of each city zones. Kind of like how car companies make SUVs to avoid emissions standards.
