The most populous of the NYC boroughs, Brooklyn is known for its brownstones, tree-lined streets and arts. Rich in culture, diversity and education opportunities, some proud residents will tell you Brooklyn is its own little city. Whether they’re taking in a concert at Prospect Park, visiting the Brooklyn Botanical Garden or enjoying a family outing on Coney Island, natives and visitors of Brooklyn are on the go, taking in all the riches the borough has to offer – and getting there by way of the historic Brooklyn Bridge is almost a rite of passage and great way to get some exercise.

Having healthy residents in Brooklyn is important to Brooklyn Borough President Markowitz. That’s why he jumped on board to endorse the BigAppleRx prescription discount card, saying the “’Rx’ would mean how ‘really excited’ Brooklynites and New Yorkers will get about a free prescription discount card that helps them purchase the medications they need.” Pointing out the pharmacy discount card has saved Brooklynites over $1.4 million their discount prescription drugs, he called it “just what the doctor ordered for saving money on life-improving – and life-sustaining – prescription drugs.”
If you’re trying to find a New York City pharmacy that honors the card, you’ll have no trouble finding a local phrarmacy in Brooklyn to choose from.
