Do you have any food vendor and retailer suggestions to give Hudson Related for Eleanor's Pier? This is my suggestion that I sent to Mr. Kramer:
Please, Please, Please try to get this LIC Flea Vendor who sells General Tso's Chicken Po Boys to the Eleanor Pier this summer.

Here's article from Gothamist about it.

That looks delicious.

Here's what the view will look like from Eleanor's Pier on the Roosevelt Island East River waterfront.

Fantastic!!! Very much looking forward to this.

Eleanor's Pier is named for former First Lady and Human Rights activist Eleanor Roosevelt.

They should get Arborio King. He's originally from Roosevelt Island.

RIOC should work with this group...

They probably would not be amenable to RIOC's insistent on shaking down food vendors for additional fees above those already charged by the city.

You would HOPE that they wouldn't have to pay the permits... UGH I HATE RIOC

Still no food trucks. Hmmmmmm
