Earlier this year we heard a horrible rumor that the Yard in Gowanus may have been shut down, but thankfully that was just a rumor. The outdoor space, located right on the polluted canal and host to a summer-long series of events, is back and better than ever. Grub Street reports that there's been a slight, inexplicable name change to BKLYN Yard (but no one will actually call it that), and that this season will launch with an event called Parked that brings food trucks (like Pizza Moto, the Community Juice Truck and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream) to the space. Bring your appetite on May 23rd for that one! Red Hook vendor Margarita will also return with her huaraches later this summer, and other events include musical performances and a community swap meet. And let's not forget that the Yard always provides fresh fish heads for the courageous foodie on a budget.
