Newsflash: That New “Fresh & Easy” Gro Sto Wasn’t Put in a “Food Desert” – Most Bayview Residents Not in “Food Desert”

The pink areas are the purported food deserts. The blob on the right is mostly mostly-shut-down Hunters Point, where I think I’d get shot if I snuck in to look for a gro sto anyway. And the lower pink blob contains Candlestick Point, which is loaded with parking lots and a dismal state park for parking your RV and a big old stadium, so there you go.

But, even before the new F&E, the vast majority of the residents of Bayview Hunters Point weren’t living in a “food desert,” FTR.

I know it’s fun to use new catchphrases, but you shouldn’t do that when they don’t apply.
