Save Penn Station’s Snack Shack

In this world of global market meltdowns and billion-dollar government bailouts, there is one commodity that we must ensure continues to be in ample supply to the American public: comfort food.  Literary blogger Tayari Jones points out that the Snack Shack in Newark’s Penn Station is in danger: Save The Snack Shack!

Today, when I swung by for my usual Monday Morning pick me up— fresh popcorn, so tasty—I noticed a sign indicating that The Snack Shack is being forced out. I signed the petition- which contains about 800 names, but I wanted to sound the alarm here. The Snack Shack has only until Decemeber 3 to convince the property management company to change its mind.

If you love popcorn and/or believe in the American Dream, send an email to Portsmgmtnyc[at]verizon[dot]net.

Even if you’ve never patronized it, you know it: that mouth-watering smell of freshly popped popcorn wafting through the air as you step down from the Path train platforms.  That may become a distant memory if the Shack can’t convince the Port Autority to allow it to continue doing business in the station.  

Without these tasty distractions from their day-to-day lives, commuters may actually have to face our painful economic reality alone.  Don’t let that happen: please consider signing the petition or emailing the Port Authority today!
