It’s not just the Red Hook vendors and Gowanus Yacht Club gearing up for warmer weather: Crain’s reports that Rockaway Taco will open for its summer season next Friday, May 3. Chef-owner Andrew Field says there is still plenty of post-Sandy salvage and cleanup to do on Beach 96th Street in the next seven days, but the painters, plumbers, and surfers will make it happen. Meanwhile, the Parks Department says it intends to have its three hipster food vendor concessions areas on the beach up and running by Memorial Day. [Crain’s, Earlier]
