Dag (Hammarskjold Plaza) Nabbit!


Last night, Community Board 6 passed a resolution asking the Parks Department to review its awarding of a concession license to the New York City Milkshake Company for use of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, on 47th Street between First and Second avenues.

Another concession, the Patio Cafe, has been the longtime food-slinger in the park, and the board, along with Borough President Scott Stinger, the Friends of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza and the Turtle Bay Association, is upset the Parks Department awarded the concession without outside input.

Mr. Stringer has also written a letter to the Parks Department requesting that the Milkshake Company submit an income and expense projection and a timetable describing all design and capital work (something required in the proposal yet was lacking).
