What Trader Joe's was to March, the Red Hook Fairway shall be to April. Or so we pray, if they can get the thing finally open. A tipster spots a new sign of progress: "The Fairway website finally has evidence of their forever-pending arrival in Red Hook. Walked by the location yesterday, and found a gorgeous prime waterfront.....parking lot."

BONUS: Just a bit down the waterfront from the Fairway site, developer Thor Equities is having zoning problems with the abandoned Revere Sugar Factory it dropped $40 million for last September. Thor's vision: "a shopping strip that would include a fish restaurant, mixed-income housing and neighborhood shops has been entirely unrealized." Community pushback: "We can't just have a block of manufacturing on the waterfront, but we don't want another boring place with hip luxury condos." Hrm.
