    My wife was at the Harlem Fairway the other day, and they had news on the video ad monitors or something --

    they plan to be back up and running in MARCH :(

        For whatever it's worth -- A friend went to the Fairway in Harlem today, and she was told that Red Hook will open around March 1st.

          they also posted today that theyre starting to hire additional staff for the store, which means it has to be around the corner

            In that post they specifically say they are scheduled to open in March.

            Same here. I am finding myself in 3 and 4 stores and still not getting all I need. I actually went to the one in Westbury a couple of weeks ago.

                we were in the douglaston store and one of the red hook employees there told us definitely March 1st.
                I think red hook lobster pound is shooting for the same day

                    Red Hook Lobster Pound confirmed, when I called early this evening, that they'll open on March 1.
