Trader Joe's Work Begins! Brooklyn Saved!

The interior construction that all of Brooklyn has been waiting for has officially begun.

And begun by one guy.

It all rests in the hands of this lonely but determined worker stealth-photographed Thursday getting the job done inside Brooklyn's newest Trader Joe's at Court and Atlantic in Cobble Hill, and he's gonna finish it sometime this summer!

So far, he's cleaned up that little niche that you see to the left when you peek in the front window. Wait -- does it say something? There -- in red paint. (Click to enlarge.) It looks like: "Soy." Soy? Soy! That's where they're going to put the Soy!

Go, guy, go.

The interior (not to mention the exterior) look great. Probably going to be the best looking Trader Joe's EVER.

Too funny!
Quick, someone get the guy an energy drink so he can keep his momentum going!

Only a fat douchebag who lives on Doritos and Mountain Dew would complain about a grocery store that carries healthy, inexpensive food.

Healthy food that everyone can afford, in MY NEIGHBORHOOD? Perish the thought!
