T & J Auto Repairs is good for those without insurance. I brought my car in here once when a part was broken. They fixed up eventually but they took there time and had me waiting a long time. I also know a couple of other people who brought there cars here and they had complaints too. I say skip T&J and go somewhere else.
When I went out of town last time and I didn't have anywhere to leave my pet I brought them to Skyline Pet Service. Survey says: my pet is still alive. The service is very good. The prices are reasonable. I came back and my pet was well taken care of and groomed. I would recommend to anybody.
I've brought my dog to Biscuits & Bath before and I totally recommend. It's like a fancy day care only for dogs. They have everything. Inside doggie gym. Giant windows you can peek in on the outside. Adoption services. It's great. They walk your dog and give them manicures and pedicures. The membership fees are high but what they offer is worth it if you can afford it for your pet. Plus the employees are always friendly.
Canine Castle is not like a lot of the chain pet groomer places. First the shop is really small but cozy, there are tons of pictures all over the shop of other owners pets and the owner is a total sweetheart who's been around for a ton of years. She only grooms the dogs one at a time so the dogs aren't threatened by other pets nearby. What's cool is that the owner Anne often remembers pets names when she see's them. My advice book months in advance. The owner, Anne is often very busy.
On the outside it may look like a hole in the wall. It's a small nail salon and they have this big window outside where passerbyers can peak inside so if you like privacy forget it. On the inside the salon is pretty clean and the manicurists are really friendly. If you go early in the week like Monday or Tuesday getting your nails done is alot cheaper. It's a very relaxed place and they also do pedicures if interested.
I've been here once or twice before and it's not too bad. It doesn't cost too much and they do a good job on your nails. The manicurists are very nice but they don't speak english very well so you can't really talk to them which for me is part of the reason to go to a salon. They don't really have anything that makes them stand out but if you're looking to save a few bucks...
I love Grace Heaven Salon. Her place really is Heaven. The stylists have awesome styling skills and they really know what to do with curly hair such as mine. They always make it look curly instead of fluffy and frizzy like other stylists. Plus they never use funky harsh chemicals on my hair. The cuts usually run you around $75-$80 which in Manhattan is practically a steal.
I like to go to Pinky's nail salon every now and again to get my nails done. First it's not too expensive which for me is a big plus. They don't make you wait too long and it's okay if you don't have an appointment. They take walk ins. The women who do my nails is always very friendly to me and puts me at ease. All in all I would recommend. Plus the whole Grease Retro name is kind of funny.
When you first walk into Costume National it's like walking into a very dark and scary tunnel. The lights are really dim here. All thehe clothes are black which in New York is not really a bad thing. Someof the leather jackets are definitely worth the jacked-up prices; others are not. At least the staff is nice and friendly but how they haven't gone color blind yet is beyond me.
I bet if the Flintstones were around today they would decorate their pad with items found in Evolution. They sell skulls, bones, seashells, beetles and other odd things that you wouldn't believe they had if I told you. Let's just say seeing is believing. Just so you know askeleton awaits you at the door to greet you. This place must be a hoot around October.
