In one of the most godforsaken parts of Brooklyn, heck, of the whole city, a Whole Foods may rise.
That means people who live in the middle of a food desert may soon be able to get organic yogurt, porcini mushrooms, fancy olive oils, and all sorts of neat, fancy stuff -- even though there isn't even a decent regular supermarket nearby.
What it will mean for this part of the city, who knows? Is it a sign of progress or encroaching development?
Only time will tell.
