A new pharmacy opened on Sunday in the space last occupied by vintage store Odd Twin, on the corner of FIfth and Degraw. Called Park Chemists, it's a nicely designed spot with a decent selection of pharmacy staples and some higher-end items.
The exterior has a classy all-black old-school look, and the design carries over to the interior, with exposed brick, chandeliers, and light woods. There's a substantial perscription department, and the merchandise covers most household items as well as some upscale hair/skincare products and gifts.
In short, it's a nicely appointed neighborhood pharmacy, and something that's been needed on this stretch of Fifth Avenue. There's certainly a market for it.
Park Chemists, 164 5th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11217. Phone: 718-393-5555.
