Best of New York Services 2004

Best Shoe Repair

  • Hector's Shoe Repair

    11 Greenwich Avenue; 212-727-1237

    The downtown fashionista’s answer to midtown’s well-known Top Service, this shop is widely known for its speed—many jobs are done on the spot or overnight. It’s a bargain to boot: Full soles and heels are $42 to $45 for men and $25 to $30 for women, while a small tear in a shoe can be patched up for $10 in a day.

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.
