Milk Street Cafe, the restaurant whose business dried up in the face of the Occupy Wall Street barricades, is shutting down. Thursday will be the last day for the 23,000 square-foot eatery that opened at 40 Wall St. in June, the Daily News has learned. "It's terribly sad," Milk Street Cafe owner Marc Epstein told the News. Epstein blamed the barricades that remained in front of his restaurant even after the Occupy Wall Street protestors were removed from Zuccotti Park. "This is now the 12th straight week of the barricades," he said. The restaurant owner, who operates an eatery and catering business in Boston, said he pressed the city daily for their removal, but got nowhere. Milk Street Cafe's closure will result in the layoff of 70 workers. That's on top of the 21 let go in October. In recent days, Epstein tried to find resources to remain open, but in the end he couldn't come up with the cash to keep the vast restaurant running.

More realistically, I'd say these are and likely nothing of consequence will befall upon them.
