AdoramaPix helps people turn their digital photographs from abstract computer files into beautiful keepsakes designed to last a lifetime. Their custom photo books, for instance, print images in vibrant detail on thick, durable, professional grade photo paper that resists fading, ensuring that photos will be just as colorful for future generations. The books' binding is also lay-flat, so even panoramic images can splash across two pages without any separation. The company strives for this same longevity with a variety of photo products, from high-definition images on metal or canvas to photo greeting cards and calendars, each of which is personalized with a few clicks of a mouse.
With the intuitive PixPublisher Applet, users design and create their own coffee-table books and albums out of digital photo files, choosing from hundreds of professionally designed themes and layouts. Once the final image has been chosen, staff members meticulously print and finish the keepsake, which is then professionally inspected before being shipped to the customer's door.
With the countless designers who have made forays into eyewear design, it's easy to forget that glasses were once seen as purely functional. But Jack Cohen was one of the first to see them as a fashion accessory?in 1927 he started selling more stylized designs from a pushcart in Manhattan. His foresight paid off, as Cohen's Fashion Optical now operates in more than 100 retail outlets throughout the country. Since then, Cohen's offerings have expanded, of course, to include eye exams, contacts, sunglasses, and clip-on sunglasses for those without pierced ears.

When The Hill first opened, people speculated that Heidi and Spencer Pratt of The Hills were behind the venture. That was just a rumor. The spot actually takes its name from its neighborhood, not the Los Angeles reality show. Now that the initial mystery surrounding The Hill has lifted, the pub has become a neighborhood go-to for catching the game while sipping drinks and devouring philly sliders, baskets of crispy tater tots, and pots of fondue.
A Reflection of Murray Hill
As New York Times reporter Jeff Vandam explains, Murray Hill is a hard neighborhood to pin down. Quiet rows of brownstones and apartment buildings contrast with a lively pub scene geared toward the 20-somethings who have recently become more of a fixture in recent years. Like the neighborhood it calls home, The Hill has somewhat of a split personality. From afternoon to early evening, it is predominantly a sports bar, with more than 25 high-definition televisions broadcasting live games in the bar and upstairs lounge. As soon as the action wraps up, though, things start to get interesting. Candlelight replaces the flickering glow of television screens, and the bar transforms into a stylish lounge for Murray Hill?s sophisticated set.
An Upscale Pub Setting
The Hill welcomes postcollegiate fans to cheer on their alma maters in a setting that's far more refined than that of a typical sports bar. Chandeliers glimmer overhead, and leather cushions line long booths. Polychromatic planks of wood line the walls on both floors, giving guests something interesting to admire when the bartenders take a break from stirring lemon-drop martinis or pouring glasses of watermelon sangria.

All storage spaces come standard with around-the-clock video security, and year-round accessibility with exclusive off-street parking. For oversized handbag and baseball-card collections, the storage company offers larger units, some sizable enough to fit an apartment's worth of furnishings or a decade?s supply of french toast.
