that idea for an East Village "nightlife district" is off to a rousing start. On Wednesday night, CB3's Economic Development Committee met to hold preliminary conversations about zoning changes that would place restrictions on the location of clubs and large bars.
As Grub Street reported today, committee co-chair Richard Ropiak said while the idea might have worked 20 years ago in the East Village, "it ain't going to happen now."
Paul Seres of New York City Hospitality Alliance told Grub Street that the city "probably isn't ready for a dedicated club district, but that it might be able to create one 'post-Bloomberg.'"
Bloomberg only has one or two more terms, right?
