A Bounty of Deliverable Goods

Order all that the city offers—from cookies to your door keys.


The delights of delivery are well known to most New Yorkers. Mu-shu pork, groceries, dry cleaning, even illegal dried plants intended for smoking can be made to appear with only a phone call. But what about a tailor, a singing chicken, or a cardboard box full of warm cookies? All possible (turn the page to see how). Our favorite is MaxDelivery (maxdelivery.com), a gourmet bodega that can bring to your door, in an hour or less, a cornucopia: curry powder, NyQuil, wine, Sugar Sweet Sunshine cupcakes, and all the items pictured here. You can also order DVDs, from G-rated fare to the adult variety. There’s a $10 minimum order and a $2.95 delivery fee. It’s a relatively new service, so the delivery zone is still modest: only addresses below 34th Street on the West Side and below 26th Street on the East Side. There are plans to expand north in 2008.
