Long before every Manhattan neighborhood sprouted a Rite Aid or a Duane Reade, locals like the Roosevelts, Mark Twain, and John Belushi filled their prescriptions at C.O. Bigelow, the oldest apothecary-pharmacy in the U.S. Founded in 1838, the West Village institution earned iconic status for its unparalleled selection of hard-to-find cosmetics and homeopathic remedies and its quirky, old-New York charm. Today, the institution has expanded its reach with a satellite at Jeffrey New York.
