Store of the Day: Expressway Pharmacy on 3rd. Avenue

Situated on the corner of 47th street and 3rd Avenue Expressway Pharmacy is the only pharmacy on 3rd avenue serving the Western part of Sunset Park. Since the building of the Gowanus Expressway it has been an invisible barrier between the Western and Eastern parts of the neighborhood. Prior to the opening of the Expressway Pharmacy people on the other side of the highway had to venture to either 4th Avenue or 5th Avenue to find a Pharmacy or  trek down towards the Lutheran Medical Center where the only other pharmacy on the other side of the highway is located. Having opened recently in October of 2013 the store is one a number of new establishments that are appearing on the other side of third Avenue which is undergoing a slow process of gentrification both as a result of the development of industry City and an influx or artists as well as some high tech businesses into many of the available lofts and cheaper rents. Owner Hassan Muyir prides himself on being able to provide personalized care to his customers which include many old time residents who for the firs time have a pharmacy within walking distance on their side of the Gowanus divide. It is a full service pharmacy that does compounding as well as filling regular prescriptions and does immunizations as well. The pharmacy offers competitive prices and free pick up and delivery anywhere in the city. To see other pictures and get a better view of the place visit their page on the cyber mall on our website..
