The City Moves Forward With Plans for East Harlem Kitchen Incubator


The city has put together some innovative plans to help people grapple with the recession in recent months — and at least one of them will please foodies all over the city. By the year’s end, the city’s Economic Development Corporation says it will outfit a 4,000-square-foot commercial kitchen in East Harlem to become a “kitchen incubator” for aspiring restaurateurs.

After some lobbying from East Harlem councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito, the city has decided to give away the space at La Marquetta, a once-vibrant and historic Amy Scherber, the owner of Amy’s Bread.
