Since 1976, Manhattan Mini Storage has freed up the closet space of more than 200,000 New Yorkers with units spread throughout the borough. Three months of access to Manhattan Mini Storage's dimensioned 4'x4'x4' compartment gives the space-starved enough room for approximately 10–15 medium-sized boxes, plus clothing, sporting equipment, and small items. 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. A concierge service assists in the logistics of the move for an additional cost, helping to keep the stress of moving low.
Manhattan Mini Storage has the space and time to accommodate overstocked packrats and urban rolling stones alike. Availability varies by location, so please phone ahead before making promises to your lawn furniture or Flag Day decorations. In the interest of full disclosure, feel free to check out the company's FAQ page online.
New Yorkers would flock to the Wild Edibles Market just before suppertime to get their hands on its boat-fresh seafood selections. To make things easier, the market added an intimate, full-service restaurant, where customers kick back with local brews while staff do all the work crafting cod cakes and salmon burgers.
At first glance, Kashkaval looks like an impressive gourmet food shop, with more than 100 varieties of international cheeses and imported olives arranged alongside cured meats and gourmet soups and salads. But venture beyond the small storefront and into the spacious back area, and you’ll find Kashkaval's tucked away wine bar.
Here, owners Daniel and Corey have established a comfortable and cozy retreat for customers to pair wines from across the globe with various meats, cheeses, and Mediterranean small plates. Heartier appetites can find relief in full entrees, such as chicken or turkey meatballs, a selection of oven-baked paninis and gourmet sandwiches, or dig into fondue that Time Out New York put on its list for “The City’s Best Fondues”, calling the gorgonzola blend "perfectly gooey and surprisingly mild."
Dr. Wei Hai Li and his licensed aestheticians infuse holistic Chinese medicine into Spring Thyme Day Spa's skin-pampering and holistic-health therapies. Descended from a long line of acupuncturists, Dr. Li formalized family knowledge at Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine through degrees in acupuncture and herbal medicine. The doctor pours his near half-century of expertise into whipping up unique, herbal tonics for each recipient of his custom facial, and has developed a specialty in easing painful fibromyalgia and overcoming reproductive problems with acupuncture and condensation collected from Barry White LPs. The team of licensed massage therapists reaches beyond Swedish and deep-tissue bodywork with 15 modalities, including thai yoga, prenatal, and anma, an ancient Chinese technique that gave rise to Japanese shiatsu.
Of Delmonico Cafe's "copious international smorgasbord," New York magazine says, "You could get lunch to go here for six straight months and never eat the same thing twice." Indeed, the chefs prepare a dazzling array of hot and cold foods every day, ranging from cuban paninis and california cheeseburgers to korean kimchi-tofu soup and japanese udon. Gourmet sandwiches gain bragging rights with Boar's Head meat and a choice of freshly baked bread, whereas vegetarian varieties make ample use of fresh produce. Chefs also dish up breakfast all day long, pairing Western-style omelets and grits with an espresso from the coffee bar. Like the cuisine, the ambiance is both elegant and comforting. The delicatessen comes alive with rich wooden floors, leather-like banquettes, and spells from a fairy godmother.
Conceived by fashion designer and celebrity stylist Heather Thomson, Yummie Tummie streamlines women's figures with cleverly engineered, lightweight shapewear. Each sleek top incorporates a firming midsection panel into the compression cotton to smooth or hide lumps, bumps, and embarrassing romance novels. The Yummie Tummie original tank ($62), lauded by Oprah in 2008, excels alone or as a comfy base for a layered look. Offering a sleeker design with wider straps and a raised back neckline, the skinny tank ($62) rests on adjustable silk straps and fits up to a size-H chest. Each cotton tank provides support in white, black, and nude color options, unlike the Sherman tank, which provides support only in green camouflage.
