Some more exciting news from the recently reopened Manhattan Bridge archway. While there have been murmurings of tag sales, performances and other ways the space may be utilized, no specific details have been made public until now. The Architect's Newspaper reports that on top of various public programming, the DUMBO Improvement District might be bringing in a marketplace (Robert LaValva's New Amsterdam Market) this summer, with organizers envisioning a showcase of purveyors offering a wide variety of goods, similar to the Borough Market in London. But before you start making a grocery list, nothing is final just yet. They report: "Much of the new programming, including the market, has yet to be formally announced pending city approvals, according to the district, which emphasizes that discussions with public officials are ongoing." If this all happens, expect an opening day around June 28th. It's hard to believe such a beautiful space has been used for DoT storage for so long. Tonight the spacebuster bubble will be set up inside the archway for an event that's open to the public.
