Food Market in the New Penn Station?
January 2nd, 2008, 2:59 pm
In today’s New York Times, Kim Severson reports on the efforts of a group called New Amsterdam Public to establish a permanent indoor public food market in the city. Recently the group held a one-day event outside the former Fulton Fish Market at South Street Seaport. The article mentions the possibility of Moynihan Station as a permanent home for a market, but “economic development officials say a big public food market is not in the works.”
The article is unclear about who is pushing the idea (New Amsterdam Public is focused on the Seaport) and we’re not sure how this could work logistically. We do know that the modest Grand Central market has been tremendously successful. What do you think about a permanent public market in the new Penn Station?
