My doctor's office is on Madison Avenue in the 30s, one of those nondescript buildings full of, uh, doctors. On the ground level, there was a small, family-owned pharmacy. This was, of course, quite convenient for getting prescriptions filled. They were fast and friendly. When I went to my doctor this week for an appointment:
One of the maintainance guys in the lobby said that the pharmacy couldn't afford the rent anymore; that they'd have much more space in the Bronx for a lot less money. Of course.
It's still a fairly dull stretch of Madison Avenue, but, as Jeremiah noted in March, change is coming. Quickly.
