2-year beer beach suddenly becomes 4 months
The lease for the pop-up beach is expected to run from June through September. In September, the owners of the lot will break ground, as planned, on a new residential building that will have affordable housing units.
Oh? That's interesting since they told the community board that they have a 2-year lease:
According to CB 5 District Manager Gary Giordano, Rockaway Brewing Company has secured a two-year lease with the owners of the Woodward Avenue corner property.
Maybe next year, instead of a sand beach they'll make a concrete foundation beach!
"The owners seem like they want to be respectful to the neighborhood, even though their idea seems quite out there and inventive," said Giordano.
(As evidenced by the fence behind you collapsing onto the sidewalk.)
Ridgewood can still take solace in the fact that a guy who rides his bike on the sidewalk and is threatening to wear a Speedo thinks this is a great idea.
