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.

Like many children, the founder of Tasti D-Lite, a native New Yorker, begged her father for a taste of ice cream. But this was no typical whining for a treat: she needed her father, an experienced food technologist, to help develop a frozen treat with less calories and fat than ice cream and frozen yogurt. Thus, in 1987, the first cup of Tasti D-Lite swirled into existence. After a huge boon in New York, the company now boasts locations in more than a dozen states. From the shining root-beer oceans to the marzipan mountains, Americans now enjoy flavors such as carrot cake, chocolate nougat, or mango tart n’ Tasti, topping each treat with bits of candy and fresh fruit.

Shoots of green leaves punctuate the white walls in the dim, quiet room. The greenery works in concert with a grouping of healing crystals and a glowing trio of candles to fill the serene space with an earthy energy. This marriage of relaxation and nature is the basis upon which GoGreen Organic Spa was founded, evidenced in the staff’s eschewal of chemical-filled products for the eco-friendly, organic Éminence skincare line used in all of their treatments. GoGreen’s crew of aestheticians bustles about the spa lavishing natural services upon patrons’ weary bodies, soothing cheeks from the pinches of passing grandmas with a Peace Facial or incorporating organic champagne and apricot oil in a Divine Massage therapy treatment for two.

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

On a hot night in a Miami nightclub, two Brown-educated students – Sadie Kurzban and her best friend Brielle – wondered aloud why nobody looked like they were having as much fun sweating at the gym. The duo joined forces and created 305 Fitness–a place where fitness and fun live happily under one roof. They created a fun-focused workout that combined the thumping beats and flashing lights of the nightlife with dancing designed to burn calories and tone muscles. Now, workout studios exist in three cities, still helmed by Sadie. She teaches Hip-hop- and Latin-based dance classes, as well as sculpting classes designed to build long and lean muscle.
