Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part III: Fire Damage, Hunt’s Point
Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:
The Associated Super Market on Hunts Point Blvd, the only real grocery store in the area, caught fire last week. On friday they gutted the inside, throwing smoke and water damaged cans and bottles into two large dumpsters out front.
I walked by near midnight friday night as a large group of residents where filling carts and vans with anything they could salvage. Whole families where working together. A father in his fifties said “I been shopping here for almost twenty years, giving them almost all my money. Nice to get a little something back for free.”
