Here are some recent reader comments we’ve found thoughtful, interesting or helpful.

In response to Something Fishy’s Going on at Fairway, Christine wrote:

The Fairway rotisserie chickens are still the best in the neighborhood.

The cheese counter is decimated. It’s still there physically but once you get closer you are disappointed. Forget about finding your bold or delicate favorites — they have been discontinued.
It’s a shame about the fish and meat counters. Maybe they think no one is cooking anymore. People are, and more than ever due to the pandemic. Now if I want fresh meat or seafood, I guess I will go to Whole Foods at 97th and Columbus. Or the real old timey butcher at 87th and Amsterdam. Or the seafood market at Chelsea Market, if I happen to be downtown. And thanks to the decimation of Fairway I am trekking to Sahadis in Brooklyn now more than ever.
Overall Wakefern does not seem to understand the UWS or that Fairway is for foodies. We value the experience and taste and skills of the cheese- fish- and meat-mongers (ok butcher, you know what I mean). We value the gourmet. It used to be that when you wanted to be a real chef, you would shop at Fairway. Now it seems Fairway shoppers can only be good suburban processed meal preppers. If I wanted to susbist on frozen or processed foods, as Wakefern seems to think we should, I would shop at Target or Trader Joe’s or become one of those box meal people I see on TV. Wakefern are you listening? Poultry and potato chips will not keep Fairway afloat.

My wife just received an email from a woman who said she’ll be in the shop from 11-5 until next Wednesday, 1/19. I would suggest anyone who has items there to go!

NOTE: we called the store on Saturday and an employee picked up (though we were hung up on pretty quickly). Frames For You can be reached at (212) 874-2337

In response to Low-Flying Military Aircraft Spotted Soaring Over UWS, “Jan6flyover” wrote:

It was shocking and completely unprofessional of these pilots. They did not give their standard warning and flew way too low, creating widespread alarm. I don’t know why this has not been elevated by city officials, the mayor and the government. January 6th at 2:15pm exactly is a deliberate act. These military pilots showed disregard for millions of people in a seeming loyalty to the terrorists who stormed the Capitol one year ago. They should be punished for this brazen act. We deserve to know that any military granted access to our airspace will show responsibility or face consequences.

In response to Scathing Report of Abusive Upper West Side Bar Owner, “Anonymous” wrote:

I have encountered Michael McKiernan at the 1020 bar one day during 2021 and I confirm from my interaction with him that he is a predator who likes to exploit young vulnerable women as he attempted to target me. Michael McKiernan & Gene Steinhart need to be investigated and charged. We need to protect these women and everyone in between.
