JFK just became one of the few airports in the world where you can get your dry cleaning done. Elmhurst resident Taeyoung Kim saw a need for the business after spending seven years running a shoe-shine stand in JFK's Terminal 4. His new endeavor, J.F. Kim Dry Cleaners, opened in the same terminal last week. Kim assumes most of the people taking advantage of his services—which include laundry and tailoring—will be airport workers. But it's good to know that if you spill coffee down your dress in between connecting flights, there's a place inside the airport that can help you out. [NYDN]
