EaterWire: Mad Square Park Gets $75K for Big Apple BBQ

Danny Meyer, with Debbie Landau, President Madison Square Park Conservancy and William Castro, Manhattan Borough Commissioner

FLATIRON—If you're curious to know why the Shake Shack and Danny Meyer can do whatever they damn well please at Madison Square Park, it's because of check presentations like the one from last Friday. The Madison Park Conservancy was presented with $75,000, or, the proceeds from Meyer's Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. Per the press mats, "the money will go towards the ongoing renaissance of the historic park." The money will not go to ShackWand R&D, note. [EaterWire]
