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.

Founded by Arthur L. Carter in 1987, The New York Observer combines behind-the-scenes reporting and insightful commentaries to keep the people abreast of the latest goings-on about town. Published every Wednesday, the weekly's features delve into national and citywide politics. Columns such as Kevin Baker's politically focused Shrinking Brain and Nina Burleigh's women's-issues-based The Bombshell take a more opinionated approach to the headlines. The Wall Street section examines the market's recent ups and downs, Betabeat profiles the figures behind the tech industry, and the real estate pages reveals the newest occupants of popular city properties. As GalleristNY chronicles the New York art world, the rest of the culture section offers takes on art exhibitions, theatrical productions, concerts, films, and up-and-coming pigeons in the park.

A recurring guest on Martha Stewart Living radio, Simon Feil has not only been a self-described "chef by osmosis his entire life," but an actor and educator who shares his passion with amateur cooks. Feil and his team of chefs teach prospective sushi rollers to craft their own maki in group classes, private lessons, and sometimes even at students’ homes. Whether they're teaching individuals or corporate clients, chefs guide their charges through each step to creating platefuls of savory seafood. The variety of classes—which even includes a lesson geared toward pregnant sushi fans—encompasses many different levels of cooking experience and fish-whispering ability. Gift baskets help outfit customers with their own maki-making gear.

"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.
