Two Lower East Side Businesses Join ‘American Dream’ Food Court in the Meadowlands
A host of New York City businesses are headed to the gargantuan American Dream complex in north Jersey. Two of which hail from the Lower East Side, we’ve just learned.
Empanada Mama, with locations on Allen Street and Hell’s Kitchen, recently signed a lease to join the party. Apparently the deal was forged during the lockdown, so perhaps a good price. The stall is to reside on the second floor of the indoor amusement park, as part of the Munchies Food Court (sponsored by Vice).
Butter Lane Cupcakes from East 7th Street is also a purported tenant, set to occupy space on the first floor.
The American Dream is located in the Meadowlands sports complex. It’s a (chronically delayed) mega-mall and amusement park wrapped in one, featuring 450 stores, indoor skiing, ice rink, Nickelodeon theme park, and water park.
Of course, the elephant in the room is still coronavirus, and whether crowds will flock to such confined areas.
