  2. Have the same problem in my area, around Sheepshead Bay. Finally found a real pharmacy in Gerritsen Beach. If the Rite Aid kind of stores move there, all is lost.

  4. This is so delicious, it’s like an irony layer cake!! First, you have the irony of the fact that Duane Reade would not even give a shit about this neighborhood if not for the gentrification by these privileged “kids” who now protest their arrival. Second, it’s still a valid concern. Third, how many of these new hipster establishments bullied out previous small businesses? Fourth, you can’t even have a story about Williamsburg anymore without it being ironic. This is like the gift that keeps on giving!

  6. vintagejames: Whereabouts in Sheepshead Bay are you? There seems no shortage of mom-and-pop pharmacies here. In fact, new ones are opening all the time. Just walk down Sheepshead Bay Road – there are four pharmacies that I can think of in about as many blocks. And that’s NOT including the CVS.

Tell me what you're thinking...
