I've been a customer since the late 90's and Sandra (and her staff) is superb. I do not give out 5-star ratings readily, but she's achieved results for me that exceed what I got from salons in Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Long Island over the years. She recently moved into a newer facility that's quite a pleasant place to shave a year or two off your appearance. The place is bilingual (Spanish) - well-suited for this locale.

Our problem turned out to be messy, fairly complex, longstanding and urgent to have fixed. The chimney cap had come loose during Sandy. More than one squirrel had taken up lodging inside the chimney, resulting in a very hard-to-dislodge, dense nest. Last, a new liner was needed, but some of the tiles were loose, making that installation difficult. This was a three-person task. Yes, theoretically DIY, but only for the bravest, most patient and cautious among that crowd. Allied was working another job nearby and arrived on the scene within 90 minutes. The job was complete within two hours without any interruption in heating service. The fee reflects the amount of work, so homeowners with all three issues should be prepared accordingly. On the other hand, due to risks of animal intrusion and carbon monoxide poisoning (our chimney was seriously blocked) a trustworthy service provider is what the doctor ordered. I would like to have added airline miles by using a credit card to pay, but if that's my only complaint, I consider this a successful conclusion to a vexing problem. Recommended.

A local converted movie theatre with a well-curated schedule of artists. The sound system is very good for this venue, artists are generally happy to play here, drinks are available, and the former film seating design is steep -- ensuring that everyone has an excellent stage view. This is a community-supported arts venue, not a dance hall, the sort any local community would be proud to host. Don't expect, and you shouldn't desire, to be catered to like at Radio City or the Beacon. Best: it's affordable, so you can also take advantage of some nice local eateries nearby to make it a pleasant night out.
