A squad of FDNY, Buildings Department, and State Liquor Authority inspectors descended upon Marquee in Chelsea on February 2, and discovered the club was operating at nearly double its capacity. Additionally, DNAinfo reports, surplus clubgoers blocked the fire exits, other doorways were obfuscated with hundreds of winter coats, and potentially explosive canisters of propane and 60 gallons of lethal liquid nitrogen were being stored near yet another emergency exit at the rear of the club. Marquee reopened last month promising to be more subdued than its previous iteration. Now just a few of the multiple violations issued to the club may take between six and nine months to resolve.
