First off, I am once again amazed at the breadth of insight and local knowledge that I have been given access to since finding RTH. The amount of information that the community mines collectively is absolutely staggering. The quality and quantity of that information is only eclipsed by the amazing insight of the many opinions found here. I have learned so much on this thread as well as the last few.

At some point does anyone think it would make sense for the city to lease the old food court area from Yale and then sub-lease to individual stall owners. This would simplify leasing arrangements for Yale as they would have a single point of contact rather than 20 or 30. The city could leverage its size and the size of area required to get favorable leasing rates, far lower most likely than individual stall owners would get from Yale. Ideally, this would be a zero subsidy arrangement for the city, unfortunately there lies the possible slippery slope. Any riffs, opinions or ideas on this idea would be appreciated.
