Open For Business Despite Violations

Open For Business Despite Violations


The new Duane Reade Pharmacy at Beach Channel Drive and Beach 116 Street open­ed for business on Thursday, June 5, despite the fact that the city’s Department of Buildings issued the owners of the site two violations for its curb cut, which feeds right into the busy intersection. According to a spokesperson for the DOB, one of the two violations was for work that was completed without a permit and the other was for a curb cut within 50 feet of an intersection. A hearing date on the violations has not yet been set, but the DOB spokesperson said that the cut “will have to be legalized somehow.”The new Duane Reade Pharmacy at Beach Channel Drive and Beach 116 Street open­ed for business on Thursday, June 5, despite the fact that the city’s Department of Buildings issued the owners of the site two violations for its curb cut, which feeds right into the busy intersection.
