Dining al fresco in McCarren Park

Urban Rustic is setting up a food cart in that sliver of McCarren Park between the dog run and Greendome. As part of the deal, they are also donating tables and umbrellas. I suppose some might lament the privatization of public space, but this looks like a win – Greendome is one of the best things in the neighborhood, and the dog run is an important asset (and social center), but the area between the two is largely dead space. This will change that.
