  1. Our city is starting to realize they cannot bring manufacturing back to our waterfront so they are becoming more “event” oriented just like the privately owned Industry City. But I’m not as upset by BAT doing this because it will bring Sunset Parkers down to their waterfront – which the City has kept them away from (I still remember when the City paid for a chain link fence from 42nd Street to 51st Street on behalf of a private owner back in 1990). Let’s get down to the waterfront – especially the Wholesale Meat Market – and let’s demand a public esplanade so we can always visit our waterfront – not just during special events (this will be great for employees down there so they can enjoy lunch on the waterfront. But I can’t help but say “The City is finding that it is easier to paint a mural about quality jobs than to create them”….lol
