From A Walk in the Park:
Running A Private Business On Public Park land. The Parks Department revenue division is now permitting Parks-owned Patrizia's of Bayside - formerly Valentino’s on the Green - to close its lunch and dinner options to the general public to allow the concessionaire to exclusively focus on its catering services. Until further notice Patrizia’s will only open for its scheduled catered events. Difficult to see the public benefit here.
