The East Village bar was shut Tuesday by the health department.
The total number of violations issued added up to more than 28 points, which would have earned it a C. However, there were things that couldn't be fixed immediately that led to the closure.
In order to reopen, McSorley's will need to correct the problems and request a reopening inspection.
People walking past the restaurant posted photos on social media.
