Once there was a crappy Hollywood Video Store,
Now there is a Duane Reade.
Prehistoric Third Avenue sucks.
The DR near Astor Place is officially open for business. We must not forget that every Duane Reade has a Chase Bank center inside, giving the East Village 3 Chase locations (Astor Tower, 3rd Avenue and 9th St, and Second Avenue Deli) in as many blocks.
This is a serious challenge to Starbucks Square. Hopefully, the Green Goblets rise up to defeat their blue and red foe.
