Was Fatty's, now Crescent Apothecary
« on: November 06, 2014, 02:25:33 PM »
I was passing by and noticed the former Fatty's has a new tenant and was wondering if anybody knows what this might be?

It's going to be a pharmacy.  What a waste of space for that location!  I live right over there.  Let's see how many people go there when they could walk up to the CVS on 31st St.  Even though I will only have to walk half a block to get there I will not use this pharmacy. I'm sorry that Fatty's had to move because of this.

I knew the owner's of Fatty's and they told me the owner wanted them to move so a pharmacy could open there... oh well. I predict it won't last long.  Crescent Apothecary is also a strange name.

The pharmacist's parents own the building, so I wouldn't expect the new tenant to be going anywhere anytime soon.

It's not a strange name, it is just a little old fashioned. I think it sounds hipsterish, personally (I think because I've seen it used in places like DUMBO and the like). We've known it was going to be a pharmacy for some time - it was reported around the time Fatty's announced their move. I peeked in the other day and it looked like they still had to put up shelves and things. And yes, the son of the owner is a pharmacist and he wanted to open up his own place.

I agree, Braun, terrible location.  Good luck to the hipsters.

I like to eat out or have a drink at times, but it's nice nice that a business other than a bar, pizzeria, bagel shop, or cafe is opening. Perhaps it will be one of those pharmacies that serves egg creams. Who knows.

I think we'd have to time travel for that, but I like the nostalgic image.  And now I want an egg cream.  Where can we find Fox's U Bet around here?

Before Fatty's opened at that location nothing ever lasted there.  There was a restaurant before Fatty's and it didnt' last for long

I love old time luncheonettes like this. I remember when I was growing up we had these and they served egg creams

Braun, look at this:


http://www.yelp.com/biz/brooklyn-farmacy-and-soda-fountain-brooklyn


You will see thee most amazing photos of egg creams, sundaes, a lots of other goodies. I'm in that part of Brooklyn just about every week, but have always avoided that place because I'll be hooked for life and my waistline and arteries will never forgive me.

The sundaes and such really are good.  They also have drinks like egg creams, and a menu of basic American fare.  The last time we were there, a kid at a nearby table was served an enormous square of mac & cheese.

Do you know that CVS Pharmacy is such a monopoly that they pick and choose what insurances they will take to fill prescriptions.  I am grateful for Crescent Apothecary because at least that CVS has turned away my prescriptions, there is someone gracious enough to accept my insurance since CVS wants to be a bully and could care less about people in need of medical services.  Just thought you should know that!

CVS is hardly a monopoly. There are dozens of pharmacies in Astoria. And picking and choosing which coverage you accept is a decision most doctors and pharmacies make. I love how you call them a bully yet you are the one who thinks a private business needs to accept your coverage because you said so. That makes you a bully.
