Indeed, Mr. Benepe went out of his way in the statement to praise the food. “One of the great New York City pleasures is enjoying tacos, huaraches and other fine Latin American cuisine at Red Hook Park,” he said. “The Parks Department is happy to keep this longstanding tradition in place by extending the permit for the Food Vendors Committee of Red Hook Park through the end of the season. We encourage all New Yorkers to come to the park and enjoy a palate-pleasing tour of Latin America.”
Said Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York:
Hooray for the huaraches!
Thanks to all who helped!
