      A wonderful way of giving back to the heroes Mt. Sinai. Speaking of rhubarb, Fairway hasn’t had any recently. If anyone has seen it at a local market, my lonely strawberries will thank you…

      This is wonderful, I personally tried that tart at the Silver Moon bakery two days ago, it is absolutely delicious!

      I had a bad experience with a manager and the owner at the store sometime ago. I asked the manager a question, the owner was quite rude. I have not been back since.

        Having had a recent experience with Health Nuts at 99th and Broadway, I am soul searching to see if I could have handled my exchange by responding rather than reacting. I’ve done so well having compassion for what everyone is experiencing right now and trying to be kind to myself too, but an unwillingness to know the law of the land sent me over the edge for which I am sorry.

        The Executive Order of the State of New York regarding masks, YES masks, states very clearly:

        “Any individual who is over the age of two and able to medically tolerate a face-covering shall be required to cover their nose and mouth.”

        Unfortunately, the discrete signs in each and every NYS store does not make this distinction clear and store staff and managers are making up ad hoc new regulations.

        If one is wearing a face covering to keep the peace so to speak even if they should not be and has to take a breath, according to the Executive Chamber’s Executive Order letting the face covering down in order to take a breath should be allowed.

        Sadly, store staff and managers have decided to take it upon themselves to also become medical doctors and Bill drafters refusing to hear what the law actually states.

        It is not easy balancing a desire to respect people’s mistaken belief’s, one’s civil liberties and the intentionally confusing NYS law.

        And yes, this is an appropriate place to post this because ALL store staff and managers might take note of the ACTUAL law and SHARE it with one another.

        For those wishing to re-fresh their memory of the NYS Executive Order, please see it at the following link:

        This Executive Order has been extended.

        Thank you.
