1622 Cortelyou Smoke Shop Reopens Following Renovations

Several weeks back, we noticed the grocery store at 1622 Cortelyou Road (between E 16th and E 17th Streets) was undergoing some changes. At that point, only some interior demolition work seemed to have been completed.

About a week ago the store got a new roll down gate, making it easier to see the inside, but this morning was the first time we’ve seen the store back open. Renovations have taken place from floor to ceiling, and the space is clean and bright.

  1. It’s a vote of confidence in the neighborhood when a business spends money to upgrade their store. Though we have many food stores in this area, they must feel that there is enough business to warrant the expenditure.

  2. I sincerely hope you are right. I wish there were a restaurant/bar/lounge in that part of Cortelyou, however. All the interesting stuff is further West. And it would be really awesome if somewhere on Cortelyou there were a gym like NYSC.
