I love Brooklyn Animal Hospital. It's run by a caring staff who devotes their attention to you and listens to your concerns and any relevant information. They give thorough check-ups and are very knowledgeable about different animals. Their hospital is up-to-date with the latest technology and medicines, ensuring your pet is getting the best and most recent treatments/tests. Overall, a terrific facility.
I think Murray Hill is one of the neatest places in Little Italy. Professional artists give instructions and classes on all sorts of art projects. I made my own pottery, which turned out very nicely, and was a lot of fun to do. Go with your family or bring a friend - it's tons of fun!
Alright, Tower City Floral Selections doesn't have the most elaborate selection, I admit that. But what they do have is nice and fresh and you can find a simple bouquet to fulfill some purposes, which is why I gave it four stars. It wouldn't be the place to go if you're finicky or very particular about what you get, but it will fulfill "Break A Leg," "Happy Birthday," or "Get Well Soon" purposes admirably. Nice place.
You get great value for the money you pay to have your car washed here. They do a thorough job and get every portion clean and shiny, and all the dirt and grime previously on your car will be abscent. For nine bucks a wash, it beats any other car place.
I frequent this gym six days a week and love it more than any other gym I've been to. It's a clean facility with so much equipment to pick from. They have two cardio sections: one in the broad light, and one in the dark Cardio Cinema where they show movies on a gigantic movie theater screen. Pick from the Elliptical, Stationary Bike, Treadmill, or Stairstepper and enjoy the flick. They have toning machines, such as hip adduction/abduction, free weights in each locker room, and an open, airy room to do lunges, jump rope, or abs work. It isn't crowded in the afternoons and it's easy to get equipment. Best of all, if a machine goes down, it's repaired within a day. Terrific facility.
I love Designer Perfumes - why check out every single counter at the mall when you can just come here and find it all in one place? They have all the latest releases and probably 1,000 boxes of perfume - there really is something for everybody. You can either pop the cap off and smell the perfume, test it on yourself, take home a sample, or test it on a paper card. The options are endless for finding the right perfume/cologne for you.
I do admit they have very nicely-crafted, colorful pieces that look great. However, these overpriced pieces can be found at Pier One for literally a fraction of the cost. Why spend $60 on some tiny handheld knick-knack for your contemporary home when you can get a $12 glass figure from Pier One that is just as modern and well-made? I hear they'll probably be forced to close down, which I can understand why; their prices are outrageous.
My six-year-old nephews are now into collecting Yu-Gi-Oh trading cards and I always come here to bring them new ones. I find fun comic books and novelty toys that they love getting in the mail for surprises. It's a nice store if you're shopping for a child between 4 and 10, and I do agree the smoke-free and clean environment makes it a pleasant experience.
Hunan By The Falls is an upscale Chinese restaurant with white cloth-covered tables and gigantic floral paintings that adorn the walls. The atmosphere is very nice, and the food is delicious. My shrimp-loving friend always gets the jumbo shrimp marinaded and served with fresh, colorful veggies. I personally go for the garlic chicken, which isn't overwhelming, with a side of white rice. Delicious cuisine, nice atmosphere, nice location.
I have tried many other Mexican restaurants, but there is no comparison. The food at Nuevo Acapulco is amazing - all of the ingredients taste fresh and are full of flavor. It is as close to real Mexican food than any other place and isn't a Tex-Mex place. The Sangria's were out of this world. Our waitress was very nice and very prompt and our bill was excellent for the amount of food we got. The restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but that is because it is a hidden gem.
PROS: Delicious Food
