14th and Park update
CVS opens up on May 21st.
Just wanted to clarify the mistake of the bank being a Wachovia. It’s going to be a Washington Mutual.
First, we said there was an Eckerd Pharmacy, Battaglia’s and a second NYSC going here.
Then, Battaglia’s backed out and is moving to 15th and Willow. NYSC still here.
Now, here’s the current lineup:
- CVS Pharmacy is apparently taking that spot instead of Eckerd
- NYSC still there. They’ll have two entrances. An elevator and stairs on 14th St., and a stairwell on Park.
- A Bank is going in this corner spot. I recall a reader indicating it was going to be a
Wachovia bank. Correction, as you can see from the comments, that bank is actually going in the Sovereign.
Here’s an old image from many months ago:

Update 9/6/06: NYSC Promoting.
On the corner of 14th and Washington, the new uptown NYSC has a table set up seeking early sign-ups to the new gym facility opening in late November, early December. They’re looking for 500 names, and the first people that sign up prior to the grand opening will get reduced monthly rates. They were unsure of the actual number, but will most certainly be lower than the standard rates. Talk to Bill Russell when they open the location in October for “previews”.
Provide 4 names and numbers and get a free NYSC backpack, water bottle, hat and headphones. Check it out on your way home.
Update 8/14/06: It seems as if Battaglia’s has backed out of this location, and is moving to the old George’s Hardware store on Willow between 14th and 15th. There is still an RKF sign indicating available retail space at the 14th and Park location…
This project is moving along, so here is what is seemingly going into the old Hostess building 14th between Willow and Park:
