The Shophound headed over to the recently-opened Eastern Mountain Sports on the UWS and thought: "We are out of our league." While the shop is filled with camping gear and other things of that nature, he reports that there are also non-hiker-friendly items, like bikes and "all manner of outwear." If you feel like you need to buff up before heading over, you'll be pleased to know that SoulCycle is now also open on the UWS. [The Shophound; Previously]
