While a person might wear clothes ranging from basic tees and pants to slinky cocktail dresses, they can't lump everything together when it comes time to do laundry. That’s why the technicians at Fabricare Cleaners offer laundering services in addition to their three styles of dry cleaning: one for basic items, one for fragile items needing special care, and one using biodegradable, eco-friendly detergents. They have a reciprocal relationship with the Fashion Institute of Technology, in which they teach the school how to service garments and the school teaches them how to understand construction. This training enables them to immediately recognize stains and fabric type, allowing them to accurately protect and clean clothes by using fabric-friendly chemicals and buttons previously worn by secret-service agents.
After more than 30 years in the business, the owners recently upgraded the facilities to incorporate green technology and use less energy during their processes. In their upgraded facility, the staff can efficiently clean clothes, furs, house decor, and shoes, which can be dropped off in one of the 24-hour kiosks and are returned with the shop’s free delivery service. They also provide reusable garment bags, helping cut down on plastic waste and large cat nests found in the closet corner.
Every sandwich, soup, or salad from Jimmy's Mediterranean Deli packs a colorful wallop of imported ingredients. Fresh soups ($3.50–$6.50), breakfast platters, and piping hot daily specials furnish visitors with an island of variability within the meatball-flooded ocean of life. The deli’s specialty Greek- and Italian-style cuisine parades proudly in their sandwich menu. Encased meat-seekers can escape to the boot-shaped birthplace of Pinocchio with the italian classic decked with genoa salami, rosemary, ham, provolone, tomato, and onion ($6.25), or sink into a gyro or chicken souvlaki served on a bed of pita and blanketed with sheets of tomato, onion, and a comforter of cucumber sauce ($5.50). Meanwhile, the sandwich-averse can grab pizza by the slice ($1.75+) or pie ($5.25+).
Home to more than 1,000 marine animals, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk entices visitors of all ages with glimpses of the Long Island Sound’s rich ecosystem. Pintsize adventurers thrill at the touch tank, which puts friendly rays and other inhabitants of the Sound at arm's reach. Sharks swiftly navigate a glass-enclosed exhibit, giving visitors an up-close view of the powerful creatures without having to disguise themselves as bigger sharks. The friendly staff members feed seven harbor seals three times a day, inviting landlubbers to watch and ask questions as the whiskered inhabitants chow down. A six-story screen displays larger-than-life images in the IMAX theater, as educational tales of seafaring critters and jungle dwellers inspire folk ballads about the family cat. The behind-the-scenes tour steers visitors through the jellyfish nursery and fish kitchen before piloting toward the Open Ocean exhibit, where participants can toss in fish to feed the sharks, and then after-dinner mints to curb the indecorous effects.

Inside the spa's quiet, dark chambers, clients float atop a warm epsom-salt solution that creates the illusion of weightlessness.
