Looks like the BID is working to attract new stores and restaurants to The HUB and they want input from Bronxites to see which shopping and dining options we would like to have available in the area.

They have a short survey on: HUB/3rd Ave Community Survey HUB Survey

Apple store, ewwwww. This is not the East Village were every Hipster, aged hippie, heavly aged beatnik, NYU and New, school students who walk around with macbooks, some people in that area cant even afford a macbook. But I do want to see some sort of change in the area, their is still plenty of under utilized land in that area especially where the 2 and the 5 train exit out of the subway tunnel as well as the Mott Haven Junction for the Metro North. I would like to see a better selection of restaurants but sadly most residents do plenty of shopping in the hub and have no time for an hour long sit down so fast food joints may work best, same for people who work in the area. Maybe along 149th street certain sit in restuarants may do well and attract a clientel who is not in an hurry and also not on a budget, however that clientel has to move into the area or visit it to say the least. There is only one or two Gourmet shops in the area, one by Lincoln Hospital I think and their food is alright. But I do agree for more health option food in the hub, maybe another Gym and a movie theater would work out well for the area.

Is there an Applebees on 149th Street? Seems like every major shopping district in NYC outside of Manhattan has one now. Downtown Brooklyn has one on Dekalb Avenue, there's one on Jamaica Avenue and there's also one on Fordham Road.

I'd like to see some interesting twists in the cuisines of the population that currently makes up the Bronx's populations and all served in nice, clean restaurants with good service.

I requested a beer garden and outdoor restaurants.

BTW, that small one story commercial (boxing gym) sitting on the vacant lot surrounding the entry point of the 2/5 trains into the subway was finally vacated. Development should begin shortly on a retail expansion on E 149th just east of Third Ave.
