There are certainly compounding pharmacies and pharmacists around. That might be the closest thing to apothecaries that are still around.

There’s one where I live too! It’s a cool spot.

I know of three within twenty miles of my house that compound liquid scripts and none that made capsules or tablets.

I think there’s at least 10 in Manhattan.

Plenty of them. I can think of about four right off the bat in my area. I’m speaking of compound apothecaries. In addition to those, the pharmacies at the hospitals here also prepare compounds.
