Duane Reade on Delancey Street Took on Substantial Water
The Duane Reade on Delancey Street took on major water this week. Down the stairs and into the basement level.
Several industrial-sized fans are switched on high to dry the place out. Not to mention, an entire section of drywall paneling in the stairwell was removed.
It’s unclear at the moment as to what caused the flood, but it’s likely related to the cold snap of the last couple weeks.
For decades, this spot was home to children’s department store Bunnies. Their claim to fame was selling super-cheap school uniforms back in 2000. Bunnies would last another five years; it closed in 2006, a few months before Duane Reade moved across Ludlow Street from the strip that sprouted the SVA dorm.
