CVS is coming to the corner of Tenth Avenue and 23rd Street in the new Sam Zell rental building. This ends rumors that a Citarella was coming. While a CVS is certainly not a Citarella, I do think its addition to the neighborhood is extremely useful: Right now West Chelsea residents have to walk quite a distance for a CVS-type store…..and those visiting the HIGHLINE PARK will find it even more useful. Thankfully Forrager’s came to 22nd Street and Eighth Avenue!

The new EQUITY/Sam Zell rental building at 500 West 23rd Street may be bringing a worthy counter-balance to its rather mundane architecture to the West Chelsea neighborhood: rumor on the street is the ’ultimate gourmet market’ Citarella may be the new street level retail tenant. With 5 locations currently in Manhattan and the Hampton’s, Citarella would certainly be a very welcome addition to the neighborhood, prefectly positioned amongst hundreds of brand new high end condominiums whose owners would certainly be thrilled with an alternative to the insultingly dirty, over-priced Gristede’s located on Tenth Avenue and 24th Street. This location would benefit equally by the thousands of visitors drawn to the Highline Park: a prime entrance is located in front of 500 West 23rd Street…..add to this the throngs of locals and tourists headed towards Chelsea Piers and the Hudson River Park.
