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.

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.

No idea why you're getting the negatives. This is exactly the case -- both bread and peanut butter can be kept without refrigeration, and is close to a complete meal (carbs, protein and fat.)

Yeah, that's what I first spotted too.  Funny how emergencies influence the reorganisation of some people's priorities.

True story:  I worked at a Starbucks in downtown Seattle the day the Nisqually quake struck (magnitude 6.8).  The Starbucks was located on the ground floor of a well-known, now-bust, bank.  I had just taken this guy's order when the quake hit...building facades were collapsing, windows wobbling in and out like they were made of plexiglass, syrup bottles and other crap falling off the top shelves.  I go out to the seating area telling the customers to get under a table and hang on.  The quake stops and we all evacuate into the building lobby.  The manager locks the door and the customer whose order I had taken before TSHTF grabs me by the arm and says, "What about my latte?"

your statement is false - i'm not in the 1% and it's apparent to me.

ok, population planning a must - sounds like a great idea, just like cutting down on carbon emissions.

but how do you propose that it get implemented?

people will fight it tooth and nail, the octomoms and other assorted redundant scum which feel their genetic material needs to be disseminated far and wide, despite having no real value, will call you a tyrant and a fascist, and claim that you are part of the NWO and are implementing a "depopulation agenda". it's sad but true, the people we least need copies of on this earth, are the most likely to breed copiously.

if you can find a way to get it done, i will support you, but i just dont see a realistic way for it to happen before it's too late, mostly due to human nature and complacency.

Same sort of ridiculous stuff sheeple do around the one/two day/s the shops are closed for xmas/new year... you would think it was more like a month the way people stock up! On the other hand I stock up so I don't have to bother going to the shops 7 times a week...If I can't go shopping for 3 weeks cos of snow, so what, no problem, I will just go out when it thaws

When i visit new york, i was always quite amazed by stores putting food in "bins" which aren't really bins, but more like shelves, full meals were left in "bin's" because they had gone out of date, people then qued and went to them and took the food out, which they blatantly couldn't afford.. these people are going to be very hungry.

While regular folks are thinking bread and beans, I'm thinking of all that lovely wine and caviar stored carefully in cellars in the Hamptons. May it all be washed into the sea along with the 'cottages' where it is stored, and may the shoreline be pushed inland at least 500 meters so that none of the current owners will have title to dry land on which to rebuild their over-privileged lives. And may their insurance not cover such an 'act of God'. And finally, may at least a few of them choose to ride out the storm at home. Yes! Go Sandy!

Americanspirit, that has happened in westhampton beach. A very narrow breach cut thruogh the barrier beach, within a month it was a mile wide. Everything gone. The whole beach was rebuilt with houses closer together than ever. I think they are fucked this time

Foreshadowing: is a literary device in which an author indistinctly suggests certain plot developments that will come later in the story.

Right, does this qualify as a war with the aliens to get the economy going again?

... he really did advocate for that, maybe in snarc, but how can you tell when it comes to econ PhDs?

I used to visit refineries all over Jersey tied to the asbestos litigation happening at the time.  Anyone know how much refining capacity still exists there? Given all the price flux after CA's recent refinery boondoggles, I'm wondering what this is going to do to gas prices in that market?

Go for WonderBread - it can also be used as a floatation device and you can have a slice or two with a sardine while waiting to be rescued...

Who gives a shit.  It's a storm folks.  By Wednesday, it will be business as usual.  And if the storm turns out to be a dog - like so many are after they head onshore - it will be business as usual tomorrow.
