Fresh flowers breathe life into any living space. Here in New York City, many neighborhood delis happen to have extensive flower selections. It’s just one of the city’s quirks. And, they’re affordable! Subject to the laws of supply-and-demand, standard blooms (along with manicures) are cheaper in NYC than elsewhere. Bundles of tulips or hydrangea can be had for only $6 each.
Being able to pick up a bouquet along with ingredients for dinner? Pretty great.
A few tips:
Stay away from the roses. I often see employees peeling off browning petals so they can pass off the bouquets as being fresher than they are. Such manipulation is harder to accomplish with, say, lilies.
