Gowanus Canal, soon to be the site of a new Whole Foods store

It's official: Brooklyn is getting a Whole Foods on a site along the Gowanus Canal. On Tuesday, the supermarket chain got approval for zoning changes from the city's Board of Standards and Appeals, clearing the last hurdle before it can obtain building permits and start construction, reports The Wall Street Journal. The store will be located at the intersection of Third Avenue and 3rd Street and will include a 20,000-square-foot rooftop organic garden. The company expects that it will need to hire 350 workers to man the new store.

At low tide, the canal still has a considerable "aroma" -- will not be so appetizing during those hours!
