Unfortunately Original New York Seltzer began to fizzle out as the decade turned and by 1993 the company was seeking bankruptcy protection. In 1994 Miller walked away from the company and it was left to the courts to decide it's fate. After leaving ONYS he turned his attention to raising and training wild cats of the large variety (lions and tigers etc). "I wasn't cut out to head a major corporation" he said at the time "I'm really good at this."
Precious little is available anywhere that adequately explains exactly when and how the company was dissolved. Some people claim they can still buy ONYS at Big Lots while most others insist it has been relagated to the dustbin of business history.
