I went to Fairway in Red Hook because 1) I am a huge fan of Fairway in Plainview, and B) I always wanted to make a culinary day out of the Red Hook Ballfields and the Red Hook Fairway.

One of the most satisfying days I’ve had in a long time.

For the Fairway business philosophy in general, check out my Plainview review. That being said, this Fairway stands out tremendously for a few reasons:

This Fairway is at the end of Van Brunt Street. There isnt much else on the strip, nothing that really overcrowds at least – which is definitely one of the charms of Red Hook – nothing is overcrowding, overstepping its boundaries, it’s all just there, laid out very nicely.

So, there sits Fairway. In a tremendous building, where it holds possibly the entire first floor. This Fairway is very big, to the point of being endless. You can look down the aisles, but you will probably not see the ends. This is the most ‘comprehensive’ supermarket I’ve ever been in.

The other main reason this sets itself apart is the dining area. It makes you shake your head. There is hundreds of feet of bulkhead. You can see Staten Island to the Statue of Liberty and beyond. There wasnt many people there at the time, and I am not sure if it ever gets crowded. You can go to parks all over the state, and you will not find as good as views, as serene an environment as you have here. It’s all just there, for you. And, if you need a gimmick, there are a few abandoned train cars to look at too.

I found love in Red Hook.

  1. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE AVILABILITY OF VARIOUS HARD TO FIND PRODUCTS. FAIRWAY PRESENTS SUCH A WIDE VARIETY OF PRODUCTS REACHING OUT TO VARIOUS CULTURES AND NATIONALITIES. THE VARIETY OF PRODUCTS IN ONE LOCATION IS UNMATACHED IN THIS AREA.

    I GO AS OFTEN AS I CAN JUST TO ENJOY THE COOKED FOODS AND DINE ON THE WATERFRONT PIER. IT IS A PLEASANT AND RELAXING EXPERIENCE.
