Duane Reade in the City: A Convenience Store Just In Case

(photo: Phil Davis)
One thing I usually map out whenever visiting a big city is where the nearest convenience store is located. We can't possibly pack for every need or emergency without overpacking. So when you need something from a drugstore just in case, there is a Duane Reade located every few blocks in Midtown Manhattan.

I usually visit the nearest Duane Reade near my hotel to pick up bottled water, Red Bull and coconut water. The prices are pretty good for New York that I don't feel like I'm being gouged in the pocketbook for picking up a snack or some allergy medication. Plus for the tourist looking to save some money on meals, each Duane Read has a decent selection of pantry items, snacks and even microwave meals. Probably the best convenience is the locations that are open 24 hours.
