Gramercy is the middle of a Duane Reade blitz. First, one opened on Third Avenue between 23rd and 24th. Now we hear another one is coming in up the street, on Third between 27th and 28th. The area already had a Duane Reade just an avenue block away, on Second between 26th and 27th. As our tipster asks, "What is the right ratio of Duane Reades to residents, anyway?" We think one-to-one sounds fair. Isn't the American dream a chicken in every pot and a Duane Reade for every citizen? [Racked Inbox]
