Around Town: CVS' New Chelsea Store

I passed by this just yesterday and just had to mention it here. It really is the coolest setting for a drugstore I have ever seen. CVS has taken over the old Balducci's location, at the corner of Eighth Ave. and 14th Street in Manhattan, which used to be a bank many years ago:

  1. Not the best use for the site as a CVS, but kudos to them for not jackhammering or installing a dropped ceiling at this former bank building's grand interior. Adaptive reuse can happen. What other uses can one envision for the site, if it wasn't a CVS?
