Ikea's Idea

Tuesday, April 06, 2004 - 04:34 PM

This morning’s show kicked off with a spirited debate on Ikea’s plan to set up shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The New York Sun’s Errol Louis was in Brian’s seat today while Brian was off for Passover (he returns tomorrow).

The debate about whether the jobs and new services would be enough to offset the traffic problems actually continued off the air. The Red Hook civic alliance’s John McGettrick and Ikea’s Pat Smith argued their way to our lobby and eventually parted ways even before the elevator arrived (much to the relief of concerned onlookers).
