Veggie Van Coming to Two Bridges Neighborhood
Six months after the Pathmark store closed on Cherry Street, the Manhattan Borough President has a plan: the Veggie Van.
Scott Stringer’s office is partnering with the Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and GrowNYC for a weekly service at the residential building alongside the Pathmark site. Greenmarket provisions will be available for $10 per box. The program, which has been available in other communities designated as “food deserts,” commences July 11.
The residential and commercial project on the parcel where the vacant Pathmark store now sits is being developed by Extell Development, and is expected to include a supermarket, but the company has not released details about its plan.
