At the June 3rd SLA public meeting to discuss the Pier-A liquor license, the much-denied beer garden planned for Pier-A was proven to be a real plan. We were particularly appalled at the Poulakaos team trying to clam that the beer garden is a tribute to German immigrants who landed at Pier A (see the 30-second point of the video).
First of all, Pier A is of very little historical importance. It is not that old and had nothing to do with Ellis Island.It as not “the landing ground” of immigrants. Secondly, to make this stretch, to pimp out the good name of German immigrants in order to justify their greedy plans to impose a large party beer garden in the middle of a residential community is just outrageous.
