Anonymous has left the following comment on the post "At Yesterday's BSA Hearing On Gowanus Whole FoodsVariance": So let me understand this: Because of the hardships associated with building on this site, Whole Foods needs huge variances. What happened to just NOT BUILDING ON A SITE that is that troublesome? Seriously, I would not put Whole Foods and hardship in the same sentence. Really. 'Look mum, when I put my hand in the fire, it hurts!' The response to that is so very OBVIOUSLY to call the fire truck. Feh.
