Montague “Piazza” Days Scheduled for September

According to The Brooklyn Paper, this year’s “piazza” days on Montague Street, when it is closed to automobiles and made a pedestrian concourse with tables and chairs for relaxing or al fresco dining, will be in September instead of July. They will be on three Sundays: September 13 (which coincides with the Brooklyn Book Festival being held nearby), 20, and 27. According to Montague Street BID’s Chelsea Mauldin, the decision to shift from July to September was prompted in part by inclement (either rainy or too hot) weather during last year’s events. She also said the BID will “develop programming” to entertain passers-by and, it is hoped, draw them into stores.

    If they shift it to December, we could have cross-country skiing exhibits, igloo-building, and other stuff. And it’ll be just as empty, just not as obviously empty as it was last year.

    As the article points out, the events were rescheduled from their original July dates due to inclement weather. In other words, as a result of the acts of a presumably non-denominational G-d. So, sue me.

    One might also note that they were encouraging people to nosh in the daytime during Ramadan.
