The parks around Jamaica Bay will soon be open for business.
Inspired by the success of similar programs in the Rockaways, the Parks Department has joined with the National Parks service to bring food concessions, as well as kayak and bike rental stations, to city and federal parks lining Jamaica Bay — and they’re now asking for local entrepreneurs to send in their own business proposals to make the city’s plan happen.
