Trader Joe's Coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park?

Racked (published by Curbed) is spreading the word that Trader Joe's is in negotiation with One Brooklyn Bridge Park. Racked speculates: "Since the subway's quite a walk, this could mean a huge parking lot is in the works as well. A chain grocer like Trader Joe's would have quite an impact on neighboring merchants. But would any true Brooklynite choose TJ's hummus over Sahadi's?"

UPDATE: An insider told McBrooklyn that Trader Joe's is "not denying" this report. More to come.

Two different animals. I would get hummus at Sahadis, but canned tuna at Trader Joe's.
