Roosevelt Island Main Street Retail Update - Kamin Health Urgent Care Medical Facility Closes Out Of Business Last Monday But Pup Culture Pet Store Opens On Same Day

The Kamin Health Roosevelt Island Urgent Care medical facility opened for business in December 2016 but went out of business this week on Monday, April1. A sign was attached to the store window announcing the closing and also indicating that The Roosevelt Doctors Jack Resnick and Kathy Grimm will continue to see patients at the 520 Main Street location.

I asked Dr Resnick today:
With Urgent Care leaving Roosevelt Island, do you have any comment on future plans for providing medical service to the Roosevelt Island community?

Do you think you will expand your practice to make up for Urgent Care's departure?
Dr Resnick replied:
Yes, I do and have begun work on it...
Stay tuned for more info from Dr Resnick.

Better news is that the new Roosevelt Island pet store - Pup Culture - opened for business on Monday.

Pup Culture has existing locations in Soho and Tribeca. According to Pup Culture:
Established in 2002, Pupculture is one of the original pioneers of New York City's Dog Day care. We pride ourselves on treating your pets with the same kindness and affection that they receive at home.

Earlier today, this little dog was exercising in the Roosevelt Island Pup Culture playroom

that can be easily seen as you walk on Main Street.

A passerby noted that a bench should be placed on sidewalk facing the window so that the humans can watch the dogs playing.
