Place of the Month

C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries


Today, September 22, is the Autumnal Equinox. In the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the beginning of fall. The days get shorter, the night draws in, and the weather starts to cool off.  As if it weren’t already hard enough to say goodbye to summer, we’re also faced with the start of cold and flu season, not to mention the onslaught of seasonal allergies. But New Yorkers never fear, because for the last 179 years, C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries has provided us with the highest quality remedies, and the highest quality care, for all of our autumnal ailments.
Established in 1838, C.O. Bigelow is the oldest apothecary in America. It is also a New York Institution, and September’s Place of the Month.
Bigelow is an ethical pharmacy in the traditional sense, and the place in New York to buy anything in beauty. Stepping into C.O. Bigelow is a walk back into a time of personalized attention not often seen any longer; a gathering place, a comforting atmosphere in the otherwise impersonal chaotic world of retail. Some say, “if you can’t find it anywhere else, try Bigelow's.”
