2011_03_astorfood.jpgIn a meeting discussing the city's plans to renovate the area around Astor Place and the Cooper Square Triangle, Community Board 3 members made a preemptive strike against food vendors, saying they would oppose any attempt by the Parks Dept. to add concessions to the area. Said one member, "I have visions of Astor Place turning into the Meat Market. We want more public space, but we don't want the area turning into a zoo." [DNA Info; previously]
