((((((Discrimination and violation of the law))))) Run away from it. On June 18, at noon, my wife, who was head covered; has a clear accent, tried to enter Snipes shoe store, Steinway St branch in Astoria, Queens, but she was denied entry by the door woman, then the manager came to her and also denied her entry because my daughter, who’s less than 2 years old, wasn’t wearing a face mask, however the governor’s executive order exempts less than 2 years individual from wearing a mask. They yelled and shouted in a threatening way and told her that anyway they don’t have the old stuff that people like my wife want to buy. At 6:11 PM the same day I went back by the toddler without a mask on her and surprisingly the same store manager allowed us entry and I also noticed another older kid without a mask on. But, after he saw my wife again, he yelled at us and asked us to leave in a humiliating way because the toddler had no mask on however, he already let me in when I was pushing the toddler’s stroller and he was at the door and definitely saw the toddler without a face mask on. Even though I told him that I called the Governor’s and Mayor’s office to confirm that the Governor’s Executive Order 202.16 exempts individuals who are less than age two from wearing a face cover, he insisted on throwing my wife, toddler, and myself outside of the store as if we’re shoplifters. Note: My wife had the toddler’s Passport ID that proves that she’s less than two years of age and offered to show it, but also she was denied entry. Moreover, the lady that was on the door spit on my wife, which was so humiliating. I can also post the manager’s photo and video, but I’ll keep them in case somebody reaches out to me to discuss the matter because I reached out to the headquarters but there’s been no response since then.
