I rented my home from them and I think they did a great and quick job. It's a good family realty in a nice neighborhood in Brooklyn. They now have a candy shop next door which is also good. House prices are too expensive for me to look for a home, but when they come down I am going to BOVE.
I was very satisfied with the NY Fog Spa and Hotel. It was recommended to me by a friend. Great service and I could see that they cared for my dog while I was away. I came back a day early and when I walked in they were surprised to see me. I walked back with them to get my dog and I could tell that she had been brushed recently so I didn't mind the charge or leaving a large tip!
Cobble Hill Animal Clinic is a good place for pets to go. There are good vets here and a nice clean office for you as well. I brought a friend's dog here to be fixed and they did a good job on him. Not only that, but they kept us abreast about what was going on during the day.
Although the Central Park Zoo is not as big as the Bronx Zoo, it is a great zoo to go with children. You are able to see the entire zoo and you don't feel exhausted and the kids aren't too tired at the end of the day either. It's in an excellent location and a great place to go for a good family day.
Hunter is a great school. Good professors and course offerings. Although the school is a CUNY school, it is not disorganized like many other CUNY schools.Good location and surrounding neighborhood also make this a good place to take classes.
A World of Pets has changed dramatically since it first opened years ago. The place is poorly maintained and the pets are not treated right. I did get a dog from here and he was a purebred dog, yet he had many health problems. Two other people experienced the same exact thing when they purchased pets here. If you need a pet, go to a breeded or a pet shelter.
Weiss Bakery has delicious pastries, bread and cakes. They make wonderful jelly, lemon and chocolate rolls. The only bad part about them is the price. They charge you by the pound, rather than by the cake itself. Weiss is a great place to stop and get pasteries before you go to the country and visit friends.
Alba's Pastry Shop has incredible pasties and cakes. If you have a special occassion stop here to get your celebration sweets. Everything is always fresh and delicious. They have a large selection of fancy Italian cookies. Behind the counter is several salespeople and there is very little wait. You must try a cannoli at Alba?s.
Gloria's is a wonderful place to bring your dog for grooming. The staff is welcoming and more dog never minds going there. Although grooming takes awhile, you will notice that is because Gloria's has a large clientle. My dog always comes out well groomed and with a bow in her hair.
Bonny Nails has a very relaxing atmosphere. The manacurists are very gentle and good at what they do. The place is clean and you can even purchase your own kit that they will keep there for you. It's a great nail salon in Bay Ridge because you can really relax there.
