Our corner drugstore was Beacon Drugs at the corner of Olmstead and Starling Avenues, run by a kindly man named Misha. Once, when playing with friends, I got something in my eye that was painful and wouldn't come out. My friends took me to the drugstore and Misha had me sit down in a chair while he removed the foreign particle. That's the kind of personal touch that was common in old neighborhoods of those days. Now, there would be liability concerns, etc. etc.
