New York may be the city that never sleeps, but in the midst of all the commotion lies a beauty oasis. Escape Skin Care Salon & Day Spa is in the thick of many of the city’s biggest attractions, drawing celebrity clients, tourists, and regulars alike.

> Escape is a CND Salon, so all nail services are done with these products.

The back pedicure area offers three clients the opportunity to be pampered privately.
