As Court Square residents, we all know that amenities are a bit sparse.1 Perhaps the biggest thing we’re missing right now is a pharmacy, especially now that LIC Pharmacy, located at 44-69 21st Street closed in December.
As you can see from the above picture, a sign hung on the awning has informed residents of their official closure. Customers are now directed to fill their prescriptions at the Duane Reade in the Long Island City waterfront district located at 47-02 5th Street. That is certainly frustrating news for Court Square residents, who will now have to add .6 miles, or 13 minutes, to their walk to get their medicine.
We’ve heard all sorts of rumors about a pharmacy (Duane Reade? Kings Pharmacy?) being opened nearby Linc LIC at 43-10 Crescent Street, but nothing has been officially signed.
Until then, the waiting game for amenities continues.
