From 1903 Yale Street to 204 West 19th Street

All along 19th Street documentary filmmaker Heather Korb acquaints us with some of the Heights’ charm. This one way, looped route is as packed as 19th Street itself with recommendations, introductions to the locals, and interesting tidbits of both historic interest and everyday fabulousness.

Not a face in the place you can't love at Friends For Life on 19th Street in the Heights.

The best dumpster diving in town, but don't let too many people know! Whether it's Pottery Barn curtains or a hat from Italy, treasure hunting is ongoing at the Sand Dollar. A Heights staple!

Label Warehouse has all kinds of wares at a deep discount. Hat shoppers put it on your map!

Crickets is the place to get your sandwich and your gelato! Catch up with all your favorite mags or watch the world wander by in a front row seat at the window. Best lemon gelato anywhere!


Shade is the place to meet your friends, family or take that business lunch in the Heights. Great wine list and waitstaff that really will become your friendsl
