Around Brooklyn: Montgomery supports Industry City rezoning
Montgomery supports Industry City rezoning
State Sen. Velmanette Montgomery (D-Fort Greene-Red Hook, Bed-Stuy-Sunset Park-Gowanus) recently wrote to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson about her support of the Industry City rezoning. “This is a very important issue to me. Having represented both, I view Industry City and Brooklyn Navy Yard as vital economic engines for our borough and our city. Both industrial complexes are critical to the city’s economic growth. Both Industry City and Brooklyn Navy Yard provide much-needed incubator space for new and small businesses,” she said.
From Fairway to Food Bazaar in Red Hook
Food Bazaar, which is taking over a bankrupt Fairway location in Red Hook, plans to build upon Fairway’s reputation in the neighborhood. It will retain all of the Fairway employees and some of Fairway’s features such as gourmet cheese, in-house roasted coffee and more. At the same time, it will bring its own signature items. Food Bazaar was founded in 1988 in Queens, according to Brownstoner.
