From Cynthia Lamb in a post at the Lo-Down:
The future of the Essex Street Market is finally being brought to the table at the upcoming Community Board 3 meeting [tonight at 6:30 pm, 189 Allen Street], in light of the public outcry over its possible demolition. The agenda calls for a discussion, which includes representatives from Project for Public Spaces, an organization that seeks to “transform public spaces into vital places that highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation and serve common needs.” The Essex Street Market already is a vital place and a local asset; it can continue to be rejuvenated, and it does serve common needs. How fortunate we are to have such a lively, diverse, historic market in our neighborhood.
