Carnegie Hill is changing fast.Â I go to the West Coast for one week and Petak’s closes! Katie texted me while I was in Las Vegas and I was shocked.Â I walked by the empty store the other night and passed a man carrying a Petak’s bag- I looked at the sign on the store window, then at him and he returned a knowing, sad look.Â Soon the plastic Petak’s bag won’t be a UES accessory like the Fairway bag continues to be on the West side.
LISTS FOR CARNEGIE HILL (confined to my limited walking area)
- Petak’s = Closed (I lament the loss of their chicken noodle soup, chicken nuggets, and skinny potato pancakes they had only during holidays, among other things.)
- Bolton’s = Closed (always wondered who shopped there except my grandmother when she used to visit from the nursing home in Philly when I was little.Â Bolton’s was in that spot for at least 30 years?)
- Didi’s Children’s Boutique = ClosedÂ (out of all the baby stores I did think this one was kind of cool because of all the wooden German import toys.Â Could find unique gifts.)
