Sleepy’s corner leased for a giant CVS on Church
The northwest corner of Warren and Church will soon be a giant CVS store — combining the mattress store and 7-Eleven (of course all 7-Elevens are really 7-Twenty-fours). The gift store — my go-to for NYC snow globes — is not yet leased, but available. Now to be fair I am calling the new CVS “giant” at 4800 square feet, but compared to stand-alones in the suburbs it is “mini.” The one that opened in Times Square a couple years ago is two floors and 13,000 square feet.
(If you are wondering about the union rat in the pictures, he’s there for one of the contractors at 30 Warren (aka 149 Church), Consigli Construction.)
140 Church is not the most handsome building to begin with, but CVS promises this on their website: “Being a good neighbor means being sensitive to the various cultures that make up each community. That’s why you’ll see external signage that reflects the languages of those cultures on our stores.” Not sure what we will get as a result.
I am taking this moment to say the property owner — or maybe his/her current or future lessees — should be sweeping the street, and the city should be emptying the garbage cans. That corner is gross.
