Anyone remember what the Jackson Square of the mid-90s looked like? It seemed that a fifth of its storefronts were given over to non-profit orgs with dollar-a-year style rents. Possibly a progressive stance for management to take, although I imagine there was a compelling tax angle somewhere in there. (That and an element of necessity since the retail sector had been humbled by the recessionary gulleys of 1982/1987/1990-1991, which why that quadrant of JS was entombed in drywall). I suppose that the difference with market vendors is that they're for-profit businesses. Yale may not be in a hurry to reinvent the wheel if things are slowly starting to gain momentum, but I'm sure they'd sign a lease with any small business prepared to take a leap of faith.
