Clark Street marketplace?

Jenn | Feb 14, 2006 10:43 AM

An article in today's New Tork Post business section talks about a plan to develop Clark Street into a Grand Central station-type marketplace. Article is linked below.

From the article: "But Judy Stanton, executive director of the Brooklyn Heights Association, said that while a business providing fresh foods could work on Clark Street, she doubts the area could handle another restaurant. She said the space would be better served with a tenant that provides children's clothing, such as Baby Gap.

'I don't think it is realistic to believe there'll be enough foot traffic to support more restaurants," she said. "The neighborhood is looking for better shopping alternatives--plus the people in Brooklyn Heights like to dine outside the neighborhood.'"

Who is this woman? Baby Gap? Is she kidding? Montague St. is bad enough already but to move more national retailers into the neighborhood? Ugh. And the only reason I like to dine outside the neighborhood is that there are not nearly enough options IN the neighborhood (besides Noodle Pudding, Henry's End).
