Williamsburg Walks could be shortened this year if the NAG board responds to heightened criticism from local businesses. That means only one game of four square instead of the bracket-busting six-week multiplayer 64-field tournament I was secretly planning this summer. Oh well. We'll have to play Dominos on Knickerbocker Avenue instead.
There has been a bit of a flurry in blog posting about Williamsburg Walks and the fight between food trucks and local businesses (I wrote about it here), with the Bedford Avenue Merchants Association figuring in prominently in both stories. This, plus the Starbucks scare story and the Duane Reade facebook group story that the talented Izzy Grinspan reported for Racked shows us just how skittish business owners on Bedford Avenue are these days. There's a bigger story here somewhere.
