New Yorkers flock to Chick-fil-A after mayor says 'don't go'

Last week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged New Yorkers not to eat at Chick fil-A.

The liberal mayor argued that the owners of the popular chicken chain are "anti-LGBT," calling for a boycott in New York.

It appears, however, that the mayor's words have backfired.

The two midtown Manhattan locations are doing big business, with lines often stretching around the block.

In fact, the chain is doing so well in the Big Apple that 12 new locations are expected to pop up around the city over the next year.
