I finally visited Wegmans. It’s a super market, but it’s a super super market.
My mother spoke about it for years. Whenever she went upstate NY to visit my nephew in college, she returned with reports about Wegmans. It was never about the trip itself or of my nephew, it was about Wegmans.
A few years ago, they opened a Wegmans at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, NY and I’ve been meaning to visit, but I would forget about it. But yesterday, I remembered, so I took the F train from the city and visited.
It’s right next to the King’s County Distillery and there among a lot of the old navy yard.
They are opening a Wegmans in the city, at Astor Place, in about a year, so NYC will have two now.
It’s hard to describe Wegmans, it’s a supermarket, but huge. It has restaurants inside and a coffee shop, a pizza place and loads and loads of groceries. It’s almost like a Costco but with just food, no clothing or books or anything like that.
It’s an experience, sort of like the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.
