Summer 2006
Best Sellers in New York City/Long Island, New York By Bernadette Starzee

Apartment 48

A few steps down from street level, and named for its address, this gift shop’s eclectic collection of home accessories and gift items are displayed in little rooms set up like the rooms of an apartment – a kitchen, a baby’s room, bedrooms, etc. Shoppers come to “buy gifts and great home accessories that stand out—not something you would find in Pottery Barn,” says owner Rayman Boozer.
