Deitch Projects: Final Days

Deitch Projects in SoHo is busy with its final gallery events before an anticipated June closure as a result of the appointment of its owner, Jeffrey Deitch, to the directorship of L.A.'s MoCA, according to the museum's board chairs David Johnson and Maria Bell. Inevitably, these events are so crowded, they spill out onto the street. While the real fancy parties held after the openings are only for the elite few, these are still great places to people-watch.

Spas Under 50$ Steps From The East Village Apartments

Why not indulge yourself in a spa, blocks away from the East Village Apartments? I bet you deserve it, after all, sightseeing & shopping & walking all day is exhausting.
Plus, they're under 50$... so hop in! ;)

Great Jones Spa
29 Great Jones St at Lafayette St, 212-505-3185
Water Lounge Pass (bathing suit required) - Three hours: $50

The bone-warming hot-rock sauna and cloudlike steam room in the Water Lounge are good stops at this skylit courtyard, but you’ll find real bliss in the hot tub, where strategically placing yourself near the jets yields a gentle full-body massage.
What you’ll find: Hot tub and cold-plunge tub, plus steam and hot-rock saunas. Best part: Snag a lounge chair near the waterfall and palms, close your eyes and you can easily be in the Caribbean.—Elizabeth Barr

Russian and Turkish Baths
268 E 10th St between First Ave and Ave A, 212-674-9250
All day pass: $30

This place is old-school to the max, with a mostly AARP-member clientele wearing the (provided) wackiest robes and sandals in the tristate area. (A tip: Ask one of the regulars to show you his/her routine—it can be kind of confusing for first-timers.)
What you’ll find: Sundeck, Swedish shower, an aromatherapy room, a Turkish room, two saunas, an ice-cold pool and a restaurant. Best part: There are coed and single-sex hours, but it’s open 365 days a year—as is Anna’s Restaurant, right inside the front door, where you can get Russian delicacies from borscht to herring after your sauna session.—Colin St. John

Why Not Men’s Spa: After-hours body massage
174-04 W 4th St between Cornelia and Jones Sts, 212-337-8551
After Hour Discount (by appointment only) - One hour: $50
Mon–Sat 10pm–midnight

The friendly staff at this clean, minimalist spot put my spa-phobic self at ease. My therapist incorporated Swedish and Asian techniques, smoothing on a green-tea-scented lotion and adjusting the pressure until it was just right. I got a good working all over, including my temples, brows, cheekbones and ears, as well as my pelvis and rear—areas I had no idea needed so much attention. Take note: Rose petals adorn the massage room—unorthodox for a men’s spa, but hey, even guys like to feel pretty sometimes.—Roberto De Luna
