628 Madison Avenue, at 59th Street, 212-751-9082
We can’t figure out why the Bally store on Madison Avenue isn’t more crowded. Perhaps the men of this city don’t realize that it’s one-stop shoe shopping: from casual slip-on loafers to suit-ready lace-ups to logoed urban sneakers. Styles are sleek and handsome, and the prices are remarkably inviting—if you steer clear of skins, most shoes will be under $350.
Best Shoes for Him

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.
