A reader writes in: "I was wondering what was going in at the SW corner of Grand and Broadway in Soho. It looked like it was going to be a pretty big deal, because I noticed it had an escalator in it. I did a little research, and was disappointed to find out that it will be a Duane Reade. Rarr!" Rarr indeed. [Racked Inbox]
