In Reply to: Remembering Our Bronx Corner Drug Store posted by Sammy on Friday, July 10th 2020:
There were 3 drug stores on a corner and within walking distance from where I lived.
Federman's was on the corner of Monroe Avenue and East 175th Street. Mr. Federman also sold soft drinks that were kept in a big ice chest near the front door.
The Medical Arts Pharmacy was on the corner of Monroe and East Tremont Avenue across from the Medical Arts Building on the Grand Concourse - all doctor's offices.
Down the block was another drug store - don't remember the name - on the corner of Anthony and East Tremont Avenue. The pharmacist there took a lot of specs of dirt from us kids' eyes. He sat us on a tall stool and carefully removed the dirt using a Q-Tip. No charge!
All long gone now, and replaced by a Chinese restaurant, a grocery store and a hair-nail salon & spa.
