SNAPSHOT: Manhattan Met Foods

For today's Snapshot, we're taking a look at the last remaining Met Foods in Manhattan. A matter of blocks from the campus of Columbia University, it's been forced to accommodate the changing neighborhood as gentrification spreads from Columbia into Harlem. The second-to-last Met Foods in Manhattan was at 251 Mulberry St and is being converted into a brand-new Food Bazaar.
The M in Met is missing. Otherwise the storefront looks fine, but a little rundown. I have the owner of this store listed as Gabriel Estevez, whose family also owns Estevez Foodtown.
