Since 1948, Roxborough residents have been heading to Stanley’s Hardware for their household needs, or the perfect DIY solution to a small, nagging apartment problem. The impressively stocked store moved to Ridge Avenue in 1961, and has been supplying the neighborhood with nails, screws, fixtures, fittings, tape and everything in between for more than a generation since. After a much-needed expansion, Stanley’s now runs out of a bright, welcoming, even more thoroughly stocked building on the same lot, where the dedicated team working inside sells an array of indoor and outdoor plants, consult on paint options and rent a range of equipment for bigger jobs. It’s nice to know that there’s still a corner hardware store to pick through for the perfect solution; even if you need a jackhammer, some patio furniture or some party supplies.
In 1997, magician Michael Chaut realized that New York—long the haunt of some of the world's most talented magicians—no longer had a live magic venue. Wasting no time, Chaut assembled a super squad of fellow tricksters and illusionists, together creating the weekly showcase Monday Night Magic. Now firmly installed at the intimate Players Theatre, the shows strip away such over-the-top distractions as pyrotechnics and live animals, who generally give away the tricks post-performance anyway. Their shows instead beguile audiences with up-close sleight-of-hand and mental tricks, and also enter the realm of variety-show-style entertainment with jugglers and sword swallowers. During intermissions, the performing magicians take a chance to stroll through the room, hunkering down at lucky audience members' tables to dazzle them with up-close trickery.
