Neergaard Pharmacy is a unique and professional pharmacy located in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Neergaard has been serving the community for generations. Julius De Neergaard was an immigrant from Denmark. He opened a pharmacy after passing the NY state boards in 1888. He purchased a building and in 1901 he opened a pharmacy that remained opened 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The 24 hour service became the hallmark and logo of Neergaard Pharmacy. It wasn’t until 1965 a pharmacy in Manhattan remained opened 24 hours.
Julius’s son was born in the apartment above the 5th Ave. store in 1894. His son William De Neergaard (Bud) became a pharmacist in 1916. He served 15 months in WWII and returned to Brooklyn, continuing the family legacy. Neergaard Pharmacy prospered under Bub’s leadership. He established a surgical department.
In 1923, Bud had a son William DeNeerrard (Bill). He served in WWII for the US Navy and obtained rank of Lieutenant. Upon his return he joined his family’s business and he became a pharmacist. He was instrumental in renovating the 5th Avenue store and he opened a second store, Neergaard II located on 7th Ave, also in Park Slope Brooklyn. The DeNeergaard family was in operation for 100 years.
