SNACK, CAFFEINATE, FIND A BATHROOM
There isn’t a Starbucks on this street—Amy’s Bread (250 Bleecker St.) is the best caffeine-on-the-go option. If nature calls and you’re on the street, slip into the bathroom at Rocco’s Pastry and Espresso Bar (243 Bleecker St.).
Boutiques including Satya (330 Bleecker St.), L’Uomo (383 Bleecker St.), and Clary & Co. Antiques (372–74 Bleecker St.) gift-wrap their merchandise.
SEND, DON’T SCHLEP
Messenger your bags to your doorman or ship them to their recipients from Your Neighborhood Office (332 Bleecker St.; closed Sunday). Deliveries to Manhattan and Brooklyn cost about $35 per bag and $5 per additional bag.
