Big Apple BBQ Comes Under Fire


Noho neighbors succeeded in killing Il Buco’s pig roast, and now a Community Board 5 committee has voted in favor of putting the kibosh on the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, which they say causes damage to Madison Square Park (never mind that the event raises $135,000 for the conservancy). According to DNA Info, the full board will issue a final vote on the issue next Thursday, so show up if you want pork in the park. [DNA Info]
