    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

The Bread Aisle In Manhattan's Upper West Side Is Now Empty

Tyler Durden's picture


It seems like it was just yesterday that we were posting pictures of empty shelves at New York supermarkets ahead of the epic dud that was Hurricane Irene. It is now one year later, and it is time for the obligatory snapshots of empty shelves, such as this one showing the bread isle at the Food Emporium on 68th and Broadway. Many more coming as all local New York food stores and pharmacies finally sell out their expired and extended inventory.

The bread aisle in the Upper West Side, not to be confused with the bread aisle in post-hyperinflation Zimbabwe...

I just feel bad for the folks who got stuck with Wonder bread cuz it was the last option on the shelves. No one eats Wonder bread for... fun... do they?

OK, 68th and Broadway.
How are the Dorito, Mad Dog 20/20, Malt liquor, frozen burrito and Hostess HoHo shelves doing in the South Bronx?

Get a penthouse suite at the Waldorf Towers, lobster, caviar, pate and Dom Perignon room service, enjoy the show.

Is 33 Liberty in Zone A?


A whole slew of other Banks are in the Zone A evacuation areas. Going to be quiet in Manhattan.


Looks like it is a couple of blocks outside the zone.

It's good they "finally sell out their expired and extended inventory" --- no waste (who gives a sh't folks get sick)!

Consumerism (consumption) model doesn't work !?

From the row houses of Astoria to the penthouses on Park Avenue. From the projects in the Bronx to the lofts in Soho. From the tenements in Alphabet City to the brownstones in Park slope to the split levels in Staten Island. Let an earthquake crumble it. Let the fires rage. Let it burn to fuckin ash then let the waters rise and submerge this whole, rat-infested place.

Only time I can tolerate Wonder Bread is for tomato sandwiches...the flavor of the tomatoes has nothing to compete with.

I've been reading comments like this on the web for days now. If the accuracy of the up/down votes are indicative of the populace as a whole - I want to get off this planet.

You must have used a lot of yeast to get a rise like that. Don't tell Bernanle about it. Unleavened fiat is bad enough.

Yes, yeast rises at 98.6. Heat due to friction just aids the rising process...

Unless the boro's get flooded, I don't see a line forming for your bread. The majority of people don't have silver coins.

Tins of beans? cold beans are still decent imo.. miles better than shitty bread, if you have a camping stove and gas (which is like 10-20£, for a decent one) you can have warm beans. Bread is rubbish and always has been.

Not everyone shares your preferences. A lot of folks think "sandwiches" when faced with the prospect of feeding their family in a blacked out house. I'm not endorsing it mind you, that's just the way it is. I didn't mean offend those of you who are antibreadites.
