Easy Way to Fairway

Assemblywoman Millman's free shuttle to Fairway makes grocery shopping easy for local residents.
Brooklyn, NY – On August 9, 2006 Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman sponsored her first biweekly shuttle to the new Red Hook Fairway. The free roundtrip shuttle, provided by Fairway, will pick up passengers every other Wednesday at 10:00 AM at Assemblywoman Millman’s District Office located at 341 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens. Accompanied by Assemblywoman Millman, an enthusiastic group of residents from Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill took the free trip to Fairway where they stocked up on groceries, sampled prepared foods, and enjoyed the outdoor seating, drinking coffee or simply taking in the stunning views of the New York Harbor. Assemblywoman Millman proposed the Fairway shuttle as a way to provide seniors and other residents in Carroll Gardens with easier access to the new supermarket in Red Hook, a much needed service for a neighborhood with dwindling grocery shopping options. “With the free shuttle, the Fairway is now accessible to the whole community, not just people living in the immediate vicinity or those with cars,” said Assemblywoman Millman. “From the produce section to the seafood to the coffee bar, no one who took the shuttle left Fairway empty handed. It was clear from the positive response that this new shuttle service is the easiest way for many Carroll Gardens’ residents to buy their groceries.” To reserve a seat on Assemblywoman Millman’s shuttle to Fairway, please call her office at (718) 246-4889. The next shuttle is scheduled for August 23rd at 10:00 AM.
