Measuring the Neighborhood Grocery Gap Again

The Gotham Gazette, which has looked before at how where you live can determine what you eat, updates the knowledge base in time for Thanksgiving with an article pointing out that New York "tops Bon Appetit's list of best 'restaurant cities' in America, but has whole Zip codes without a single grocery store." By the numbers, there are more than 1,100 grocery stores of at least 4,000 square feet in the city. Soho apparently has the most places to buy food per resident. Several zip codes in Queens, including ones covering parts of College Point and Bayside, have no grocery stores at all. Manhattan has the most grocery stores per resident and Brooklyn has the least (for now).
