Best Intersection to Please a Woman - 2005
RIVINGTON AND LUDLOW
Common wisdom dictates that the way to a woman's heart is through Bergdorf's and Tiffany's, but if you're going less for prestige than unadulterated joy, take her down to the corner of RIVINGTON AND LUDLOW. To the east, Economy Candy; to the west, female-friendly sex-toy mecca Babeland (formerly "Toys in . . ."). After all, Gucci is great, but nothing says "I love you" like a pound of Jelly Bellies and a Pocket Rocket. Candy: 108 Rivington Street, 212-254-1531. Babeland: 94 Rivington Street, 212-375-1701.
