About that nice little family-owned pharmacy that I'd go to

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.

On 33rd Street and Madison, site of a new 33-story condo-hotel combo.
