Grocer's store near Wellington Hotel 55th Str/7th Ave

Hi all, heading over to NYC in a fortnight's time. We're staying at the Wellington Hotel on 7th Ave and wanted to know where the nearest grocer's store is for cartons of milk and snacks? Or is there a 7 Eleven/ Circle K close by?

Thanks.

No Circle-K stores in New York City, and few Seven Elevens. But you'll have no trouble finding milk and snacks almost anywhere, really. There are markets all over midtown selling that kind of stuff. Just ask at check-in where the nearest one is. I'd be surprised if you had to walk more than two blocks.

I'm sure there is a big supermarket on 57th St, not too far a walk, did most items plus take out-as we stayed one year in the Salisbury and used to walk by the Wellington, but if you use google map , directions and street view you can wander around the outside of the hotel, use the search nearby facility. But as said lots all over.

Duane Reade is a big local chain of convenience/drugstores. YOu'll find one on almost every other block and they carry snack items. You can also map your hotel on

maps.google.com

and click the 'search nearby' link and type supermarkets to see what's around.

7-Eleven is becoming a more common sight in the city, although I haven't seen one in every neighborhood. Duane Reade, Rite Aid, and similar convenience store chains can be found just about everywhere in Manhattan.

Just about every major commercial block in Manhattan (meaning blocks zoned for stores on the ground floor - most avenues and a few major streets) will have a bodega/convenience store, many of which are open around the clock.

Prices will usually be higher at bodegas than in real supermarkets. If all you want is milk and snacks, they're fine. If you want a real supermarket, get away from midtown.
