Fairway was an excellent mega-grocery store located in Manhattanville (neighborhood)Manhattanville at 12th Avenue and 132nd Street. The location closed in June of 2020 after its parent company filed for bankruptcy. Several other locations, including one on Broadway between 75th and 74th street, were bought by Village Super Market.
The store was huge and stocked almost everything, including an extensive cheese selection. The piece de resistance, however, was the 10,000 square foot 'cold room' for meat, fish, and dairy products. This alone was the size of one of the Morningside Heights' grocery stores. They provided jackets for you to put on when entering the room.
