Fairway Market On East 86th Opens Amid Much Fanfare
It's 10am and the much anticipated new Fairway Market at East 86th Street is but an hour from opening. The opening news conference is a few minutes behind schedule as we are waiting for numerous elected officials who are expected to attend. I've had the pleasure of a preview tour this morning and I have to say it is impressive. It is not just the wide selection of produce, breads, cheeses, etc that impress me, but great prices as well. $1.99lb for beefsteak tomatoes or $3.99 for a fresh loaf of rye are but a couple of examples. The crowds have gathered and the press conference is about to begin. Welcome Fairway!
