Piazza Cafe in Carroll Park?

By Lisa M. Collins

With fear of becoming the Gary Buiso Review over here at South Brooklyn Post, the intrepid local reporter for News Corp. has this piece about local media celeb Kurt Andersen, who is proposing to the city Parks Department to turn the Court-Street side of Carroll Park into an Italian/Argentinian-style piazza, with local cafes serving folks sitting at tables and relaxing. The story says that side of the park is largely unused, which is mostly true, though ball players of many ages love it in good weather, and the story suggests moving basketball players to PS 58’s courts, which likely would not please parents and kids there.

Andersen, a 21-year resident of Carroll Gardens, lives on Second Place. He’s the award-winning host of the NPR show, “Studio 360,” a writer for Time and The New Yorker, and former editor of New York Magazine.
