LONG ISLAND CITY—The niggling little problem of LIC being completely and totally devoid of grocery stores has finally been resolved! Yes, the nabe will soon be home to a shiny new Amish Market. The scoop, from blogging broker Andrew Fine: "Thanks to the good deeds of Rockrose Development Corporation, Amish Markets is opening a 20,000 square foot gourmet supermarket in East Coast Phase 2 located at Center Blvd and 47th Ave." The store is slated to open in February. For LIC locals, this news must be thrilling. Guess miracles do come true in Queens. [A Fine Blog]
