  • Although I read Victor Falah is not the owner, do you have a way to provide his contact info? His previous pharmacy provided my wife's prescription. We have not been able to find a compounding pharmacy that can produce the same quality medication as they did since they closed their doors. I am hoping he can give me some info that will help. — Tom Stark on Beverly Hills Apothecary Is Opening on W. Broadway

  • I am so disgusted to read this article. just underwent scaffolding that lasted years ( what a mess for Greenwich Street). Work that was done on "Terraces" without even testing for dangerous Asbestos and toxins from 911! No one informed the tenants about the dust from the " work" that was done on their terraces. This is huge news that is never spoken about or reported! How does Stella and Vornado ( pure corruption) get away with that? They have plenty of politicians in their pockets. Knowing plenty of original tenants who live there and how they were and are being treated to today. They need more construction? More in and out "hotel" like tenants? NO! The block is a ghost town. Now to think of Duane Read and Best Market closing down for the selfishness of making more money is a disgrace. THE ORIGINAL TENANTS OF IPN NEEDED AN ADVOCATE, A PUBLIC FIGURE for them which they never had. Some lost their apartments, others sick from 911 and still getting downsized from the corruption of STELLA IN 2004. I really wish someone wrote about that!. How tenants who lived through the 911 tragedy and are sick still have to deal with IPN bullying them. SO VERY SAD BEST MARKET WILL DEFINITELY NOT MAKE IT. — NATIVE on The Future of Independence Plaza

  • Yes, there it was on the west side of West Broadway between Duane and Reade when I moved into the block in 1970! Remember it well! — George Bacon on Another Duane Reade Has Closed

  • Please. Apparently no one in City government cares about putting a jail next to a playground. — James on Seen & Heard: The 75 Club Says It’ll Reopen Next Week

  • it's hard to imagine ipn undergoing more construction. it's been relentless here since stellar took over. i don't understand how anyone who pays market rate would put up with it. — safe as milk on The Future of Independence Plaza

  • Please see my response to Larry. — ava on Another Duane Reade Has Closed

  • Yes - the original Duane Reade opened at 299 Broadway between Duane and Reade Streets where GNC is now. I remember when it moved to 305 Broadway in the 1970s. — ava on Another Duane Reade Has Closed

  • Is no one concerned about a ferry service put next to children's playgrounds or the adult volleyball and lawn area? Can you smell the diesel fumes? — Tmk on Seen & Heard: The 75 Club Says It’ll Reopen Next Week

  • i always loved max as well but they are so damn rude and obnoxious. I used to order deliver and cut them off due to charging me for utensils and bread...Are you kidding me....Screw you. For these prices its not acceptable... Its too bad as the food is pretty good and the space with nice. Until i get an apology I will never give them a dollar of my money. And give them 1-2 years before they go out of business. Ask me how i really feel!!! — adam glassman on Max Is Moving to W. Broadway

  • original one is on my block. Duane and Broadway and few years back renovated it... — adam glassman on Another Duane Reade Has Closed

  • Red will be of dubious transit improvement value, not to mention dubious aesthetic value. More important would be to enforce the exclusivity of the bus lanes. Even better, make them bus rapid transit lanes with timed lights. Even better still, implement modern streetcars in those lanes. — Marcus on Seen & Heard: Bright Red Bus Lanes

  • Leaving aside the absence of enforcement, the red paint is not going to solve the basic problem that it leaves exactly one traveling lane on Broadway. IIRC this red paint treatment was tested in areas with at least two travel lanes. With one travel lane, a single double-parked vehicle forces everyone into the bus lane to pass by. — James on Seen & Heard: Bright Red Bus Lanes

  • So the aesthetic discomfort of a red bus lane trumps the possible improvement in bus service? Seems myopic. — Komanoff on Seen & Heard: Bright Red Bus Lanes

  • Most Duane Reade stores will be closed and replaced by Walgreens. — hidden on Another Duane Reade Has Closed

  • Thanks for the update. You should check out Shigure on Church which changed owners about a year ago and has delicious fried chicken and a completely new and updated menu. — Peter on Where Are You Going to Eat Tonight?

  • Always enjoyed Max on Duane. Consistently decent food, nice service, best priced Italian in the area. Layout was always a little awkward and at times cramped, not cozy (that makeshift seating next to do the door in the front was the worst). Even if the square footage is the same, I hope its better laid out going forward. I agree that the old space would be great for a bar, and hopefully serve more than 2 drafts on tap. — RK on Max Is Moving to W. Broadway

  • Just watched Imogens Spring Dance Awakening video and it made me smile. Thank you Imogen. — Paul on In the News: Remembering Imogen Roche
