ISO pomegranate seeds in Hell's Kitchen

I've recently taken to noshing on pomegranate seeds, courtesy of a girlfriend who gets them from the Olympic corner deli on 13th and 1st.
I've checked the Amish Market, Mazella's Market, and Whole Foods to no avail. Where can I get the seeds in HK?
In theory I could seed my own darn pomegranate, but I don't have that kind of time.
Trader Joe's has started carrying small containers of pomegranate seeds. Try the one at Union Square.
It takes 5 minutes, 10 the first time, 15 if you're dense, to separate a pomegranate. You have time to go hunting for loose seeds, but not time to split one open?
"ISO" = "in search of"
WE like to put the pom juice on vanila ice-cream. It is a pomsicle.
I also will also mix the juice with a little sugar and balsamic reduce it to a syrup and pour it over scallops
Easiest way to seed a pomegranate is to cut it in half, submerge one half under water in a small bowl, break it apart into sections, and scrape of the seeds with your thumb right along the inside of the peel. Takes just a few minutes. The water keeps the juice from splattering all over the place, and it helps you remove the white fibrous stuff too, since that floats to the top.
