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.

Icon Parking Systems' parking facilities safely house vehicles of all shapes and sizes as owners go to work, relax at home, or take in the sights of the Big Apple. Conveniently tucked in the most prestigious corners of Manhattan—which are also the areas least menaced by aimless teenage tow-trucks—these lots offer easy access to any number of restaurants, Broadway theaters, and concert halls. Many automotive stables have no daily or weekly time limit, so drivers may come and go as they please or leave rides in the same spot for dedicated, month-long portraits. Monthly customers can sign up for the Preferred Customer Club, which grants them an exclusive card and half-off parking at any of Icon Parking Systems' 200 facilities or UFO landing pads scattered throughout Manhattan.
Perfect Image's salon services refresh coiffeurs of every kind and its spa ministrations bring new vim to tired skin. The strand sorcerers on staff consult with clients before shampooing, snipping, and blow-drying their locks into coiffured majesty ($37+). When hair is unwelcome at the body party, aestheticians will kick it to the curb after meticulously daubing warm azulene body wax around eyebrows ($13), lips ($10), underarms ($20), and other areas seeking follicle liberation. Meanwhile, indulgent hides can pour over Perfect Image's extensive list of facial treatments including the Eclat Cocoon facial, which—like a paranoid umpire—swaddles visages in a double mask before unveiling refreshed skin ($85).
