Take a Look at the Refurbished, Post-Sandy Fairway in Red Hook

Here’s a video sneak peek at Fairway in Red Hook, which is reopening next month after extensive renovations. The grocery retailer at the foot of Van Brunt Street has been closed and was gutted after Hurricane Sandy, when the harbor-facing side of the former tobacco warehouse was pummeled with fifteen-foot waves. Things have certainly shaped up since November, the last time we caught a glimpse of the inside of the devastated interior, and proprietors say lots of changes have been implemented at the rebuilt store, including wider aisles, a revamped café section, and a brand-new bakery that is three times the size of its former footprint. Fairway Red Hook will welcome back its 400 employees, who’ve been working in other stores, on March 1, when they’ll be joined by Mayor Bloomberg, Marty Markowitz, and even, ahem, Miss America.
