Located right below an entrance to the Highline, Auto Design is perhaps the ultimate auto repair, performance enhancement and interior and exterior upgrade shop in Manhattan. Its corner lot, and indoor/outdoor setup showcasing its awesome works in progress have contributed to its well-known status. On a block that is packed with top-notch art galleries, Auto Design NYC sticks out with its rough, corrugated metal façade, body shop craftsmen working outdoors, and plethora of sports cars. The company does everything, from modifying engines and brake systems to personalized paint jobs and leather trim styling. On a particularly busy day, Auto Design proves quite a show to watch. Auto Design NYC moved from 25th Street to 46th Street at the end of 2016.
I can attest to the immediate success of Carmine's on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the early nineties as my family and friends stood on the lines to get in on a number of occasions. Owner Artie Cutler's concept of serving large, family-style portions to guests, in a warm, friendly atmosphere connected with diners immediately. It did not take Mr. Cutler long to realize that he had a success on his hands and that it was time for expansion. In 1992, the theater district had another hit in Times Square, in the form of a grand, traditional Italian restaurant.
Teddy Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, and Charles Lindberg are among the noteworthy clients that E. B. Meyorwitz & Dell has been crafting “made-to-measure” frames for since 1875.
