The Post is pretty sure it knows where the rumored Whole Foods in Harlem might open up. In today's Between the Bricks column, Lois Weiss writes that the paper's "spies swear" that the supermarket is coming to the "180,000 square-foot shopping Mecca" at 100 West 125th Street. If so, Whole Foods would set up shop on the ground and lower levels.
Though the second-floor tenant has yet to be announced, the Post adds that the third through fifth floors will belong to Burlington Coat Factory. The discount department store recently announced a Union Square location, nestled into the building of the former home of Filene's Basement. Don't think for a second you'll be able to miss the Harlem location, though: The space will take up the entire block of Lenox Avenue between 125th and 124th streets.
