As we have been reporting, the Cherry Street Pathmark store is on its last legs. Although it’s scheduled to close by the end of next month to make way for a big luxury residential project, the shelves are already pretty bare and the grocery is not being restocked. Two Bridges Neighborhood Council, which played a major role in luring Pathmark to the Lower East Side years ago, is beginning to come up with a long-range plan to full a big gap in the neighborhood’s fresh food supply. They have hired a consultant, James Johnson-Plett of Urbane Development, to help facilitate the planning process. He’s overseeing a community survey to get a sense of shopping patterns, income levels and overall needs when it comes to retail food establishments. That survey is available online here. It takes about 5-7 minutes to fill out.
