Remember the days when your local pharmacy sold cold remedies, prescriptions and maybe had a nice soda fountain and candy counter loaded with Mary Janes, Tootsie Rolls and Guess Whats?
Yeah, those days are gone but the maga-drugstore era is just beginning. We received this dispatch from a BHB reader regarding changes coming to our neighborhood:
Hi there. I thought you’d be interested to know that the Duane Reade on the corner of Court and Joralemon is apparently being renovated into Brooklyn’s flagship DR like the one on Wall Street in Manhattan and it will apparently have a sushi bar in it. The one on Wall Street has a juice bar in it as well, but I don’t know if this one will. They’re expanding to a second floor. My hope is that they put windows back along the Joralemon side, which have been filled in for years. Exciting changes!
