Welp, for those of you who thought going to Columbia Journalism School was a complete waste of time, think again. Those crazy kids have come up with an widgety thing based upon NYC DOH info that will magically display the dirtiest grocery stores in any neighborhood.
So which store is the dirtiest in Brooklyn Heights? If you guessed “Grosstedes”… you’re wrong!
The information here says it’s Garden of Eden on Montague Street! Not only that, but it’s the grossest store in the ENTIRE CITY:
New York World: The grocery store with the highest number of critical deficiencies in the most recent year, ending in July, is the Garden of Eden in Brooklyn Heights, with 20 offenses. Among them: old encrusted meat residues on food contact surfaces, mold and grime in the area of the seafood area ice machine and “deep knife scores containing imbedded/dark matter across food contact surfaces.”
