Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Since June 2009, this elegant gift shop inside Grand Central Terminal’s Lexington Passage has allowed snail-mail enthusiasts to grab refined greeting cards ($5–$10) before catching a Metro-North train. Owners Douglas Duncan and Michael Schultz’s love for paper and independent designers (the two previously owned a Brooklyn wholesale stationery company, Motel Deluxe) shines through in their curated collection, featuring leather-bound Barbara Wiggins journals ($55), John Derian hand-decoupaged glass paperweights ($67) and Oblation Papers & Press telegram-like cards etched with soy-based ink (eight for $21). The boutique also houses whimsical vintage-inspired goods, such as spools of metallic thread spun in France circa 1930 ($30), Elizabeth W. magnolia-scented soaps ($12) and Beehive Kitchenware Co. zinc-and-nickel–plated bottle openers engraved with the phrase you’re intoxicating ($25).
