Fairway Opened in Red Hook This Morning!


Today is the big day in Red Hook. Fairway reopened this morning at 7:30 am, revealing a brand new grocery store post Sandy. This morning they held demos, giveaways and a ribbon cutting ceremony. Borough President Marty Markowitz and Miss America Mallory Hytes also made appearances. The doors officially open to the public at 11 am. The Red Hook store, which was entirely rebuilt after it was flooded with five feet of water, now has wider aisles, a better navigation system, a bakery three times larger, a new cafe, and an expanded bulk foods section. According to The Daily News, the repairs cost a total of $10 million. And, even more good news for the neighborhood: Red Hook Lobster Pound and the Brooklyn Winery Tasting Room also open their doors today!
