Trendy ‘Brooklyn Fare’ Coming to Extell’s One Manhattan Square 9 Years After Pathmark Closure

Posted on: October 6th, 2021 at 5:01 am by

It took nearly a decade, but Extell has finally delivered on its promise for a supermarket to replace the Pathmark it destroyed on the Lower East Side waterfront. Yet, the future is as suspected – one that caters to the well-heeled residents living in the gargantuan tower above.

This week brings word that Brooklyn Fare Kitchen & Market signed a lease for 25,500 square-feet at One Manhattan Square, occupying two floors at the base.

It’s the fifth and largest city location for Brooklyn Fare, which will boast an all-glass storefront, 20-foot ceilings and more than 80 feet of frontage. The market will offer various prepared foods, deli and sushi choices, a coffee bar, as well as groceries. Its stated mission is to “merge the gourmet with the familiar, providing fresh, delicious groceries and prepared foods at approachable prices, with the perks and services of an old-school neighborhood grocer.”

According to the New York Post, the supermarket should open sometime in mid-2022 with the official address of 227 Cherry Street.

After Hurricane Sandy hit, Oct. 2012

The eventual arrival of Brooklyn Fare on the Lower East Side is a long time coming. Nine years, dating back to the summer of 2012, when rumors of Pathmark’s demise began circulating. During every step of the planning and execution process, the folks at Extell, often cagey with the community, reassured locals that an affordable grocer would return to the spot. This latest development signals quite the opposite.
