A new 2,021-square-foot pharmacy will open in Long Island City early next month on the ground floor of a new luxury rental building.
Healthy Living Pharmacy will be located at 42-15 Crescent St. where a 124-unit apartment building is slated to open. Owned by Ray Schwartz, the pharmacy is headed by three pharmacists with more than 50 years of industry experience.
In addition to a full-service pharmacy, the business will also sell grocery, convenience and confectionery items and health and beauty aids as well.
The building, dubbed LUNA, will also include businesses such as Michael H Nguyen DDS Dental Care, Strength Lengthen and Tone Gym and Crescent Barbershop. It will feature studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, a landscaped rooftop, fitness center, lounge and game room.
“World Wide Group and I shared the same goal of offering a unique and holistic residential experience all within close proximity to the best the city has to offer,” Schwartz said. “With thousands of new housing units becoming available, and many more being built, the neighborhood has a need for a full-time pharmacy to service the residents who live, work and visit here every day. It’s really exciting to be a part of World Wide’s vision for this community.”
