Ratner’s Ghost Signage on Delancey is Gone; CityMD Urgent Care Coming Soon
This image has been archived or removed.
For one week, Lower East Siders had a helping of nostalgia thanks to some great ghost signage. Ratner’s made a brief return during the ongoing renovation work at 138 Delancey Street. Its classic cursive, sans red neons, was unveiled after workers removed the Sleepy’s Mattress fixture.
But now the marquee is completely gone … and a stop-work order in its place. The Department of Buildings issued the edict yesterday due to dangerous construction site conditions. Specifically the lack of scaffolding present during storefront reconstruction.
As previously reported, an urgent care center is moving into 138 Delancey. Build-out is nearly complete, and we now know its true identity. You’ve seen the annoying commercial hundreds of times – CityMD.
CityMD offers walk-ins 365 days each year, and accepts most major health insurance. And it continues its Five Borough expansion. The new Lower East Side center follows behind the maiden Staten Island location in New Springvile. There are over forty in the Tri-state area.
