D. Geller and Son Jewelers' team has dressed bare necks, earlobes, and fingers with dazzling accessories for more than 70 years. Made from precious metals and rare jewels, sparkling pendants embellish clavicles for evenings on the town or everyday elegance. Rings forged from silver can be set with any number of carefully cut diamonds to become an engagement ring or something crunchy to place at the bottom of a box of stale caramel corn.
Originally opened in 1927, the Genesee Theatre slowly deteriorated over the course of the century until its closing in 1989. But starting in 2001, a $23 million cash infusion from the city allowed 120 volunteers to restore the theater to its Gilded Age splendor. Its elegant trappings include authentic wall fabrics, an exact replica of the original marquee, and a 2,200-pound chandelier that gently spotlights the grand lobby and every audience member passing underneath to show how everyone is a star if you really think about it.
