Schumer Eats Corn! We Watch!

I was one a few reporters who hiked out to Red Hook on Saturday to watch the ubiquitous Chuck Schumer… eat lunch.

It was part of a press conference at which he and others urged the city not to kick out 13 local food vendors from a park that’s become a destination for foodies from all over the city. Watching Schumer scarf down a taco and corn on the cob (with cheese and hot sauce!) surrounded by a watchful pack of journalists was also a useful reminder that for all the constant attention garnered by the junior senator here, Schumer’s no slouch.
