Times: Wegman's Coming to the Brooklyn Navy Yard

The New York Times reports that a Wegman's market is coming to the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

"The 74,000-square-foot store at the Navy Yard will be the company’s smallest by about 25 percent, but will still be about 20,000 square feet larger than the Fairway in Red Hook or the Whole Foods in Gowanus..." the Times reports.

"Wegmans has consistently been ranked the top grocery store in the nation by Consumer Reports and the Food Network, and Forbes placed it among the top 10 employers in the country," they add.

This is really great news. It's a pity that they can't build out to their normal size and that is will take 2 years before they open. Nevertheless, it's going to be a great asset to the neighborhood and to Brooklyn. Hopefully, the day will come when the Navy Yard will be open to the public and we see a trolley connects the entire northern Brooklyn and Queens waterfront.

Absolutely! Wegman's is fabulous, even the cafeteria.
The trolley should be here already. Wonder what's the holdup?
