"This is a candy shop for creativity," Make Meaning's CEO, Dan Nissanoff, told New York Family. The crafting hotspot, named the Best Crafting Hub by New York Magazine, boasts a dizzying range of activities. Inside the brightly lit confines, youngsters and adults can make candles, jewelry, and soap. They can also paint ceramic pieces, create paintings on canvas, and decorate cakes.

The inspiration behind the business? The connections that Nissanoff made with his family when they worked on craft projects together. In order to offer that up to other families, he created Make Meaning, where he and his staff lead guests through craft projects, organize special events from corporate gatherings to birthday parties, and encourage inventiveness and fun.
