Fresh Direct, the grocery delivery company, is coming to our neighborhood.
They outgrew their warehouse in Long Island City but New York was able to outbid New Jersey for their business, keeping about 3,000 jobs here.
Taking advantage of $120 million in city tax exemptions, state tax credits and $18 million offered directly in cash, they are now committed to building a new facility right across Bruckner Blvd. in the Harlem River yards.
The bad news is we’ll see a significant increase in trucking day and night right outside our windows. The good news?
They still won’t deliver to 10454.
