West African grocery store(s) in Manhattan?

There used to be a West African shop on 9th avenue right by the Port Authority bus terminal.
It apparently moved or went out of business.
Does anyone know of any other West African grocery stores still open in Manhattan?

(or other boroughs if there are none in Manhattan?)

      Thanks, but anything more specific?

        116 - 125, between FDB and Lenox. All in there.

        1. re: gutsofsteel

          Start at 116th btwn Lenox and FDB. Lots of shops on that two block stretch.

            Actually, I think that in that area the better options are around the corner on FDB between 116th & 115th.

      2. New African Grocery is on 116th and Park. I haven't been inside so I can't vouch what part of the continent "New African" represents, but they're worth a phone call.
