"We are extremely excited about providing a great café experience, outdoors in Mozart Park prior to our... movies series,” said Gerald Robbins, Executive Director of Hyde Jackson Square Main Street. “Our wish is for attendees to better know their merchants, taste great ethnic food from neighborhood restaurants and enjoy local, live music all while building a stronger and more sustainable local economy along Centre Street in Hyde and Jackson Squares."

"Activating their primary pocket park and connecting the public with merchants in their café will bring people together from different backgrounds to keep the neighborhood welcoming, vibrant and economically sound,” said Joel Sklar, Chair of the Boston Main Streets Foundation, adding a cafe will encourage foot traffic.
