My uncle had his pharmacy on Prospect Avenue in the 1930's--1940's. Our huge family, all living in the area, had a built in medicine cabinet (we paid for the medicine), and medical advice. He later moved to a town in Westchester County and had a pharmacy in the town he lived in. He retired at one point, but grew restless so he bought a pharmacy in the Bronx,on Soundview Avenue. When teenagers would just come into the store,take what they wanted and walked out he sold the pharmacy so that he could be restless again in Mount Vernon.
