Your pharmacy in Yorkville


Our pharmacy is located at 1569 First Avenue in New York City. We’re situated southwest from the corner of First Avenue and East 82nd Street, a bustling intersection in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Our store is also in the southern part of the Yorkville neighborhood, which has a rich and lively history all its own. During the American Revolutionary War, George Washington stationed his troops in this area before going on to win the Battle of Harlem Heights in September 1776. This region was also once fertile farmland as well as a site for the New York and Harlem railroad. In later years, it became an enclave for immigrants hailing from European and Middle Eastern nations such as Germany, Austria, Poland, Ireland, Hungary and Lebanon.


Our location faces the busy traffic of First Avenue, and we’re surrounded by a collection of fabulous local eateries on 81st and 82nd Streets. Just a block north is the Grünauer Bistro, a restaurant owned and operated by a local family specializing in German and Austrian cuisine in the New York area since the 1980s. We’re also near La Mia Pizza, Gracie Mews Diner and Emack & Bolio’s, a well-known ice cream parlor famous for its cones stacked high with scoops of sweet, creamy goodness. Finally, we’re within a short walk or bus ride of major institutions such as the Lycée Français de New York, Zion-St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Central Park Zoo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
