Coolest 24-Hour Supermarket - 2000
Just when you thought the whole Fort Greene/Park Slope vibe couldn't get any cooler, Pathmark supermarket takes grocery shopping to the next level. Just how cool can buying groceries be? Peep this. Around 1 a.m., the music changes from classical to Motown and hip-hop. Artists and other night owls stroll, conversing with each other about neighborhood goings-on while picking up items from the fully stocked deli, pharmacy, and video-rental sections. Such delicacies as precooked shrimp cocktail, lobster tails, and rotisserie chicken are available 24-7 for those who get the munchies in the wee hours. Watch the butcher trim a fresh, thick sirloin while grooving to DMX's "Y'all goin' make me lose my mind, up in here, up in here." It's shopping with flavor and everybody's "feelin' " it.
