Best of New York Services 2004

Best Lamp Repair

  • City Knickerbocker

    781 Eighth Avenue, 212-586-3939;

    Around since 1906—and legendary in the theater and TV worlds for supplying prop lighting to the likes of West Side Story and Sex and the City—this packed-to-the-rafters shop can give new life and light to any piece, whether it’s soldering a broken swivel ($50–$200), swapping a European plug for an American one ($5–$7), or simply replacing a torn shade.

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.
