I just walked past that Super 88 today! I used to live in a Dominican neighborhood in NYC. A Pathmark opened right after we moved there, but it was never as convenient as the fruit market around the corner. Of course, the food at the fruit market was often of "eat it today" quality, so not particularly good for stocking up for the week.

I often thought while we (two American-born white kids) were living there that we'd be far better off if we learned to cook traditional Dominican fare. As it was, to get good quality stuff for our own favorite recipes, we had to take the subway downtown for groceries.
