I got what I think is a good question from a new to the neighborhood gal. This is very important stuff folks.

Hi- I just moved to India between Franklin and Manhattan and found your blog – great info! I’ve really been enjoying it and am loving the neighborhood so far- though with my work schedule, I haven’t had time to explore on foot as much as I’d like to yet.

I wondered if you can suggest a good place nearby to get a manicure/pedicure. I saw your link to Zoe’s, but they’re all booked up and I’m looking for more of a place to just walk in and get a quickie before or after work (on my way to/fro the G)… Any thoughts?


I got this email awhile ago and I asked a few people in the ‘hood because I was actually looking for one myself but it seems that most ladies get their done near where they work (i.e. the city). So where’s a Greenpoint girl to go for a quickie? I’d appreciate any suggestions!

  1. B & E Profile is awesome, 698 Manhattan Ave @ Norman, there is an exit right by the Nassau stop on the G train.

    You will get the Best wax, facial, manicure, what ever, it’s not cheep, but it’s not expensive and it’s worth it!

  2. Thanks both of you! If the G went to Steinway still that would be easy breezy… Don’t get me started on that again! lol

    I’m going to try B&E, Scully, thank you!

  3. Thanks for posting my question and thanks for the comments…Sadly, B&E has been booked every time I’ve called to get an appt. these last several days, and Zoe’s is perpetually booked. Is there nowhere in G’point you can just walk in? Someone needs to open one!

  4. I go to a place on Manhattan Ave, just around the corner from Meserole (betweeen Mes & Calyer- across the street from Rite Aid/Big D). Anyway- the pedi is 13 and if you get a mani/pedi, it’s only 16.

    You really can’t beat that!

  5. You can walk into Siss on Metropolitan & Graham Ave. It’s in the burg, but for some in Greenpoint not a far walk. It’s not that cheap (maybe $25-30 for mani/pedi?), but clean, nice and they do a good job.
