The lonnng awaited and debated Brooklyn Whole Foods opened in Gowanus, eight years after it was first proposed. The open was a few hours ago and according to third hand reporting, it's awash in hipsters clambering for vinyl records and all that's organic, twee, trend and probably more expensive than Trader Joe's and Fairway.
Wonder if this will ease crowding at the other two?
And does this switch Gowanus off the local track to full on gentrification and express renewal?
