This is pretty much the place for dancewear. You'll see lots of Juilliard ballet students around from the neighborhood. For leotards, body suits, tights, legwarmers, you can't go wrong. Kids stuff too.
The clothes are at once hip and classic, durable and stylish. You won't find bargains though, even the 'sales' involve sky high prices for what the stuff is --- casual duds.
This place caters mostly to the geriatric clientele, offering home medical supplies and equipment. Small place, but carries variety of items like neck braces or crutches or vaporisers...
This place carries the basics and is a convenient neighborhood place to get keys made, buy mousetraps or have a piece of glass cut. The people are a bit gruff.
This shop and brand have gone more mass market in recent years, so you don't get the unique artisanal items like at Sabon or even Lush. But the stuff here is more packaged and has recognizeable identity.
The soaps here are all handmade and very original in their composition. Often there is someone out front with a platter of free samples that are so aromatic you would think they were edible.
This place specializes in bath adn beauty products that are ecologically and politically correct. Everything is all natural, non-animal tested and very pleasant to look at and use. The bath bombs make wonderful gifts.
The stuff in the window is always so interesting and attractive, it invites you to go in. They have beautiful and out of the ordinary lingerie sets, but you pay up.
A little shop that specializes in sweet little lacy unmentionables with heart themes. What a perfect place for guys to buy a Valentines gift for their honey. Prices are on the high side but not too bad, and hey, it's not every day.
This is pretty convenient for those working in midtown who want to slip out for a quick lunch time work out. The facilities here are pretty basic, but you can schedule time with decent trainers.
