On Tuesday, a new Whole Foods opened at a one-time Superfund site in Brooklyn. Lines formed early. The kale aisle was reportedly mobbed. And at least one Park Slope Food Coop member was spotted shame-facedly browsing the vintage vinyl aisle. We're keeping tabs on this breaking news event.
Brooklynites way too smart to mob a store on Black Friday. But this is Tuesday, and there's a new Whole Foods. pic.twitter.com/ZodF6RZNav— Peter Kafka (@pkafka) December 17, 2013
The Gowanus Whole Foods has a rooftop bar and rooftop garden. If you gaze over the river from Manhattan and squint, you can see the smug.— Josh Greenman (@joshgreenman) December 17, 2013
I see at least one person with a "Park Slope Food Co-op" tote bag at the opening of this new Whole Foods. A defector??— Vivian Yee (@VivianHYee) December 17, 2013
@BrooklynBased 3 murdered in cold blood in the kale aisle— Conor McDonough (@conormcdonough) December 17, 2013
This report of a murder in the kale aisle is, shall we say, unconfirmed. (Read: not true.)
