The 4th Street Food Co-op

The 4th Street Food Co-op from The Local East Village on Vimeo.

This is neat; a few NYU students made a film for their blog about the 4th Street Food Co-op, which I belong to. I was manager for a couple of years several years ago, and bailed when things got too rough. (People were missing shifts and I had to fill in for them at a moment's notice; then, we moved to a smaller, dirtier space down the block while our space was being renovated. I got burnt-out pretty fast.)

I've been back for about a year, and so far it's been great—no political tension like at the Park Slope co-op, but we have our own pet causes.
