Charlie Mom Restaurant and Gold Star Deli, neighboring eateries on First Avenue at 78th Street, both closed recently. El Rey del Sol, at 232 West 14th Street in the West Village, won’t be reopening this season. New Jersey-based Drug Fair Group has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and plans to sell all of its stores to Walgreens, which said it will keep most of the stores open.

Coney Island’s Totonno’s, on Neptune Avenue, will reopen in about two months after being damaged in a fire last weekend, the store’s owner told the Brooklyn Paper. The first section of the High Line, a park space with views of the Hudson, will open in June. A veterinary clinic, Brooklyn Cares, is slated to open at 944 Fulton Street in Brooklyn April 1. Also in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bowl comes to 61 Wythe Avenue, between North 11th and 12th streets, in Williamsburg in May. P.C. Richard & Son will open its first Connecticut store this summer, claiming a 33,000-square-foot space in Norwalk left vacant by Circuit City. TRD
