Happy 1969 from a Diamond District drugstore

For decades, Jack May’s was a standard Manhattan neighborhood pharmacy on 48th Street in the middle of the Diamond District (PLaza 7!).

The store had customer service in mind when they printed up this handy calendar covering all 12 months of 1969.

Of course, it worked as a bookmark too—it was found inside a crumbling Dostoyevsky paperback. My guess is that the pharmacist was reading it between filling prescriptions.

    As far as I can gather. Jack May’s was open at least through the early 1990s.

    Thanks Greg. I looked into the place a little deeper and apparently they had a food counter with a separate phone number:
