Hunts Point Market
An extra-alarm fire raged for hours at the Hunts Point Market in the Bronx Wednesday.
The truck traffic on the Long Island Expressway may soon get lighter, as a new rail terminal is helping private companies trade in trucks for trains. The world’s longest parking lot is getting some relief in the form of freight-train service.
The market that bills itself the largest produce market in the world feeds 22 million people in the Tri-State Area.
There may be a sweeter deal on the other side of the Hudson River for the Hunts Point produce market’s 47 vendors and 8,500 jobs.
