Brooklyn Nibbles: Red Hook Vendors Meeting Postponed
GL has gotten word from Cesar Fuentes, who is the representative of the beloved Red Hook food vendors, that a meeting with the Parks Department that was scheduled for yesterday has been postponed until Friday afternoon. We assume this is a good sign in that the Parks Department may need time to come up with a face-saving alternative to its plan that could result in the eviction of the vendors. Mr. Fuentes is scheduled to meet with Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, Assistant Commissioner Julius Spiegel, Council Member Sara Gonzalez and others. Hopefully, there will be (good) news to report in time for the weekend.
