Landmark Ferry Building May Become Market

Landmark Ferry Building May Become Market

The Battery Maritime Building may be turned into an open market, as reported in this morning's New York Times. The building, a Beaux-Arts landmark at the foot of Manhattan, would house dozens of food stalls, coffee bars, and open seating areas; a veritable "culinary temple."

The New York City Economic Development Corporation, who is looking for a developer for the project, used words in their request for proposals like "artisanal cheese," "hand-crafted wines," "humanely raised grass-fed meats" and "foodies" - it's the kind of development poetry we like to hear.
