The last couple of weeks we’ve had pickup on the 74th Street side.  If serious rain is expected we set up inside the vestibule of the church but since it only threatened to rain we thought we’d set up on the street and run inside only if we had to.

So what’s everyone’s opinion?  Any preferences which side to use on a regular basis?  Please post your comments and let me know.

I actually prefer the 74th street side! For no reason other than That it’s slightly more picturesque and shady, with trees behind the setup rather than the brick wall of the church.

I agree- 74th Street also feels a bit more “private” as you do your weighing, selection, chat with fellow CSAers.

I also prefer 74th St, although I’m not sure why. It seems somehow more neighborhood-y and pleasant. Plus I think it’s easier for the folks who unload, since there’s less schlepping of the tables.

To be fair, 2 members spoke to me on site and said that they preferred York Ave. The reasoning was that 74th catches more direct sun, certainly in the earlier part of pickup this past week. I definitely agree that 74th is much easier on the volunteers for the physical work and dealing with confused passers-by.
