And to think for all this time I've been photographing fake ones. This store was previously a furniture store before opening as the AIM (Association of Independent Merchants) Prospect Supermarket in 2009. Later, it was converted to the Real Supermarket. We're actually looking at the back of the store in the above photograph, with the front facing Prospect Avenue. It looks like this store is in the range of about 8-10,000 square feet, and I'd like to return to photograph the interior at some point.
