Company May Manufacture Frankenmeat in Brooklyn

Vegetarians in NYC are salivating at the news that Brooklyn may soon be the headquarters of a company that grows in-vitro meat and test-tube leather

Crain's reports that "tissue-engineering" biz Modern Meadow is in negotiations to lease space at the Brooklyn Army Terminal's BioBAT bioscience facility, where it aims to produce leather for fashion items first, and then cowless beef and pigless pork.

If the company starts with bacon there will be nothing holding them back.
