This is an okay place to stop for a quick haircut/color if you aren't picky about your hair. The salon is nice & clean and it's usually easy to walk in or get a quick appointment.
The work is pretty no-frills, and the people who work here DEFINITELY need a good lesson on how to blow out your hair. I'm increasingly disappointed by the quality of the finished product.
For price + convenience, this is your place. For high quality hair, this isn't.
Overall I had a positive experience buying a used car here. The salesman were nice, upfront, and moved swiftly to complete my transaction.
I don't really like the salesperson accompanied testdrive, or the fact that I had to put down a good faith deposit to test drive the vehicle, but even still my car buying experience wasn't horrific.
If they have the car you are looking for, then I'd give them a try.
As a female, taking your car to be serviced can be very daunting.
Fortunately, I've only had good experiences at Apple Honda in York. The men in the shop are very friendly, and will answer all of your questions. They call you with updates on your vehicle, and get your permission every step of the way before doing work on the car.
The downside seems to be that if you take your car in for one repair they find 10 more that "need" to be done, but all in all I find their work to be good and the experience to be pleasant there. I recommend this shop for work on your Honda.
Shortino's is one of my favorite things about York, PA. I've been there probably 20 times and never left feeling unhappy about my hair. They do a great consultation with you before they start any work. The stylists actually LISTEN to what you want and are careful to make sure that you get it.
The spa upstairs is heavenly. The eyebrow waxing is fantastic. The best thing about Shortino's is that their prices are very reasonable. Big city-type salon at small town prices. Can't recommend highly enough!!
Mondel is one of my favorite shops in this neighborhood. This is where I go to get my chocolate covered pretzels. They have a large selection of chocolates and candies, and have nice gifts as well. The space isn't large, and often times there is a line of people, but it's worth the wait. The prices are good, and the staff is friendly.
This store has all of your back to school, stationery, mailing, shipping and wrapping needs. It is a small space, and it gets very congested with people. This is not helped by the fact that at any given time there are a TON of people working there - usually more employees than customers. It is wonderful to have so much help at arms reach, but it's also very difficult to move around in here. If you need it fast, you can get it here. If you have time to shop around, probably a good idea.
Circle Line does a great boat ride all around the island of Manhattan.
It leaves from the pier at 42nd street. The cost was (I believe) around $15 per person. The boat is spacious, and it has two levels. There is also food on board.
I learned more from this boat ride than I did from living in Manhattan. You pass the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, Harlem, the Cloisters, and much much more. The tour guide was informative and funny. I highly recommend this if you are new to NYC or are just visiting, or if you are a native that wants to learn some new things about your city!
I can't recommend these guys to do work in your home.
They were hired to do some general repairs (painting, install doors, fix outlets) and left the place a big huge mess. We went away for the weekend so that they would have ample time to work on our home without interruption, and not only did they not finish, but they left all of their equipment - heavy tools, etc. - in our apartment and left dust everywhere. The work, when finally completed, was not excellent. We probably could have done it ourselves.
The manager was very apologetic, but I still can't recommend Izzo Construction.
The Apple Tree is my favorite local market.
Although it's not huge, there is quite a selection in the small space. Most of your grocery store basics are here, and more. There is also a sandwich/hot food shop where you can get great meals. Video rentals are done onsite as well.
The store is open 24 hours a day. The prices are reasonable. We go here for all of our fresh fruit and vegetables and odds and ends that we can't get through our regular grocery store purchase. I love the staff. They are always nice to us. I'm glad that this place is so close to us!
Gristede's is on of the better choices for groceries in this part of the city. There is quite a selection, and the prices are okay. There are multiple locations throughout NYC. I shop at the one on 107th & Broadway most of the time.
The store appears to be clean when I shop there. There is plenty of staff on hand, and they are pretty nice.
Their online grocery ordering system, Xpress grocer dot com, is a nightmare. Frequently they are out of something and if they aren't, chances are that they'll forget it anyway. Deliveries often run two to three hours past the time slot, and they don't call you to let you know, nor does the driver even mention how late he is.
The store is fine. The online version I cannot recommend.
