Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Your NY Dietitian
Some of Lisa Moskovitz's custom diets help her clients lose weight––but others help her clients gain weight, and then give birth to a healthy baby. A registered dietitian, Moskovitz has been featured in Redbook, Self and other publications for her healthy eating plans, which she gears toward prenatal needs, food allergies, and weight-loss goals. She bases each plan on a private consultation, during which she reviews the patient's medical history, and tests quantities such as resting-metabolic rate and body-fat levels. To complement the eating plans, Moskovitz outfits clients with optional supplements, exercise plans, and grocery lists that she personally writes on the palm of their hand.
