Boy, they work fast at Khim's Millennium Market. Just a week ago, the huge new store at Driggs and N. 11 in the Burg, which now occupies the site of the old second-hand junk shop, was empty. By this weekend, it was fully stocked and open. Early shoppers looked a bit dazed. It could have been because the grocery is so big, because it's so well-stocked or, well, because the prices are astronomical. In any case, it's the first grocery in a part of the Burg that's been adding high-end condo buyers at a very, very rapid pace.
