April is Red Hook Fairway Month! No, Really! Maybe!

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.
