FreshDirect plans to use $130 million in subsidies to occupy public waterfront land in the South Bronx, imposing 2,000 daily vehicle trips through a community already facing asthma rates five times the national average. This company is a parasite on the public: they use public dollars to aggravate public streets with noise, exhaust, and waste.

Fresh?

* Plans to share space with four massive waste processing plants

Desecration

* Plans to build on top of documented Ranachqua settlement and burial ground

Pollution

* 2,000 vehicle trips every day through "Asthma Alley" in the South Bronx * 380 tons of solid waste per month (Not counting the delivered boxes!) * Loud, inefficient, idling trucks overburdening city streets

Exploitation

* Extortion of public funds by pitting NY against NJ when they have space to expand * Refusal to pay living wages to workers * Refusal to guarantee any jobs to residents of the South Bronx * History of discrimination and unfair labor claims * Blocking of public access to the waterfront * Refusal to deliver to the neighborhoods they will pollute most

New Yorkers deserve better,

especially when virtually every rent-paying local grocery store will deliver!
