For more than 50 years, Adelphi’s staff of soiled-clothing cleaners has been removing stains from grubby garments with reinvigorating dry-cleaning services with pickup and delivery options in the Garden City area. Let Adelphi pickup your corrupted clothing, or drop it off in store for a thorough inspection. Adelphi’s staff will scourge for coffee spots, paw prints, and children's ketchup-painted hand-portraits before initiating a stringent scrubbing in a filth-obliterating eco-friendly Firbimatic cleaning machine. Adelphi tenderly tends to threads of all types, restoring sweaters to stain-free snuggly-ness ($4.99) and dresses to unadulterated sultriness ($10.59), while polluted pants ($5.35) and crumpled suits ($11.50) are more than sufficiently spruced for romantic first dates or for a contract signing to write french fry-inspired haikus. For customers with problems beyond cleanliness conundrums, Adelphi also performs an array of accoutrement-accentuating services. Pickup and delivery are only available for customers within a 10-mile radius of Garden City.

If not for its bright yellow color and the mural of a cornfield painted across its doors, Go Green Dry Cleaning’s 1969 Volkswagen could almost be mistaken for the Scooby-Doo gang’s Mystery Machine. But instead of fighting ghost-impersonating criminals with their wits, the owners of this van fight clothing stains and biohazards with environmentally friendly dry-cleaning techniques. Akin to liquid sand, their GreenEarth silicone solution forgoes harsh chemicals, irritants, and odors to clean clothes in a manner that is safe for both customers and the earth. The shop’s technicians restore all sorts of fabrics—including wool, silk, and Sasquatch fur—bequeathing each with a soft, static-free touch before packaging them in biodegradable plastic. The team then hops into the van, which runs on E85 ethanol, to deliver the freshly laundered clothes directly to doorsteps. Aside from using gentle solutions to clean up sweaters and pants, Go Green Dry Cleaning supports the earth by contributing to organizations across Long Island, including Go Green Festival and the Soular Soundz concert series.
Liz Fatone grew up in Southern California, surrounded by a natural bounty of produce and lean protein. She didn't realize how lucky she was until career and stress took away her born and bred healthy eating habits. She noticed a decline in happiness and health, and when her daughter was born, she decided it was time for a change. She sought training at the Institute for Integrated Nutrition, learning over a hundred dietary theories and studying the effect of food on all aspects of life. Armed with this knowledge and a desire to help others discover a healthier lifestyle, she now acts as a nutritional counselor, providing in-person or over-the-phone advice on shopping and cooking to individual clients and whole families.
At Thinkertots, playing and learning intertwine effortlessly during interactive sessions for youngsters from infancy through kindergarten. The educational emporium unfurls a slate of classes—each holding no more than 12 children—full of games, art projects, songs, and movements to instill the principles of reasoning, social interaction, and the math skills. Distraction-free classrooms help bulk up kids' attention spans, and warm, patient instructors help even the shyest learn the kind of language skills important to communication and problem solving. Parents attend class alongside the youngest learners, but even once kids have graduated to drop-off programs, they'll get take-home learning pages to help continue the lesson at home.
