- The Living Space Company
Need to make room for baby? The Living Space Company designs and installs temporary Sheetrock walls without using nails, nuts, bolts, plaster, or anything else that might damage your paint job or your parquet. A standard twelve-foot, three-inch-thick unit starts at $695 (plus a $200 security deposit), with add-ons like French doors ($195) and translucent frosted acrylic panels ($95 and up). You lease the structure for up to three years, which is, technically, the amount of time you can count on the wall holding up. When your lease is over, Living Space will come back and take it away

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
