A nail salon has open on 42st Street moving into the store that was previously occupied by In-Bloom Tanning.
Grace Nails opened Monday at 43-50 42nd Street and offers the standard services such as manicures and pedicure. The store was greeted to graffiti on its front gates and the tagging of Café Bene next door.
Grace Nails’ opening comes just one month after the closure of In-Bloom Tanning.
The nail salon is affiliated with the Grace Nails that opened in Woodside three months ago at 51-09 Skillman Ave. The Woodside store also sells jewelry.
The opening this week of Grace Nails comes less than 2 months after the opening of Livia’s Nail Salon at 41-22 Greenpoint Avenue, which replaced a check-cashing store.
The Sunnyside Business Improvement District, which has a monthly graffiti cleanup program, is aware of the 42nd Street tags but has had difficulty pressuring washing the walls due to the freezing temperatures. Once temperatures rise, the organization will take care of it.
