2008_09_bklcon.jpgThis weekend the Daily News explored the idea of Brooklyn as a luxury destination, with one area resident saying it's "a little difficult for people to live like they used to" in the borough—what with all the pricey places popping up. However, the paper also takes a look at the opening of Brooklyn's Trader Joe's, opening on Friday. One Carroll Gardens local says of the Court Street store, "This is going to be cool. The people here are lucky to have something like this, especially since they take food stamps, because a lot of fancy stores don't take them." The shop's shelves are stocked with healthy, and many organic, choices—and prepared meals will go for $3 or less...while one can pick up a six-pack of beer for only $4.99! But don't even think about drinking them on your stoop.
