Settepani Brick Oven Pizza did not eventually arrive at 170 Lenox but a new hardware store has just opened its doors at that said location. We needed some wood glue for a repair project this past weekend and walked over to check out the shop over on 119th Street. About two thirds of the store appeared to have been stocked at this point but most of the basics were there including the aforementioned glue. Service was friendly and efficient so this is another decent establishment that has filled in a former empty space over on lower Lenox in the Mount Morris Park Historic District (which appears to be the hot spot for retail openings in the coming months).
