Too bad. I'm all for supporting mom and pop pharmacies (we go to Frank's!) but Walgreens isn't just a pharmacy. I hope they don't extend the car dealership over there. At least CVS is still there.

Jessica Gonzalez Rojas shared the following petition information recently on Facebook about the Walgreens impending closure. Not sure how quickly they can act to prevent it from closing if the closure is scheduled for next week.

Neighborhood Chat / Walgreens Northern Blvd and 78th-79th Closing

I haven't seen this posted here before, but the Walgreens on Northern Blvd is closing next week.  Apparently the rent got too high for their sales volume, most likely due to the glut of pharmacies in the neighborhood.  Nice staff, they'll be missed. 

If you don't pick up your prescriptions this week, they will probably be transferred to the store on 77th Street in the old Waldbaum's shopping center, the old Genovese, then RiteAid, now Walgreens.
This is a highly literary intellectual thread.

And a pleasant change from the usual online trolling.

I don't drive into Manhattan, but I can't resist asking if Auden will be coming with you on these trips.

I don't relish getting back on the subways, so I'm looking for someone who drives from JH to Manhattan weekday mornings and would like help with expenses. Grand Central area or walking distance. I'm 60, quiet, laid back. Flexible as to time, flexible as to costs. Please contact me directly: Thanks!

Each week during my grocery run I pick up a few extra items for Covid Care Network. I feel a little silly dropping off just a few cans and boxes each week, but I know a small planned weekly donation makes the most sense for how my family can help others. Like many, we've been impacted economically by the coronavirus with lost or reduced work, but we can get unemployment benefits. We know there are too many people in our neighborhood who can't, so it's our small way of helping.
