At last night's Community Board 3 SLA committee meeting, the board unanimously rejected a bid to turn the former Superdive space into an art gallery with a full restaurant. It was the fourth such thumbs-down for the app. One resident and opponent of the bid said before the vote, "There is no public benefit in having a gallery because there are already twenty galleries in the neighborhood." Last summer, the trio behind the plans attempted to bypass the community board and appeal directly to the State Liquor Authority, but no dice there, either.
