Could Long Island City, long-starved for a good grocery store, be about to get two? In addition to the Amish Market, there's a rumor that Fairway may open an outpost in the nabe. The following tip was just sent into blog liQcity: 'I am a private chef in the city. I do my shopping everyday at Fairway on Broadway. There is a constant buzz in the store about the new Fairway that is going to open in LIC. I have been hearing this from the employees and managers of the store.' Sounds...improbable. [liQcity]
