The former dingy and dirty NY Market next to HK Market on 45th and Broadway has closed down and now reopened as U.S. Market. Actually, in Chinese it says "New Dragon..." something or other. Anyway it's bright and clean and well-stocked and organized. Gone are the sushi and tart and dumpling counters. The registers now line that part of the shop. Both the meat and the fish sections have been redone and the stuff looks good. Bought some nice head on shrimp the other day and a lot of produce. I wanted oysters, but they didn't have any so I went into HK Market where you can buy a container of fat, watery west coast ones for around $7. HK Market was practically empty while US was booming along.
Anyway, what are people's experiences with these and the other markets nearby in Elmhurst? Looking for intel on this area down to Queens Blvd. but not as far as Roosevelt and JH area. Some comments from last year in this thread--> http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/832355 . Looking for updates or comparisons.
One thing I was glad to snag from US Market are these addictive Taiwanese wasabi-green tea peanut snacks.
