Remember candy necklaces and ring pops? If you miss those oh-so-sweet memories of your childhood, take your sweet tooth to The Sweet Shop NYC, a new candy boutique with a whole lot of old-fashioned favorites. It's the work of two sweethearts, Kelly Jaime and his wife, Glyn, a duo with an affinity for candy-coated nostalgia. You'll find plenty of sweet-starved New Yorkers and guests of New York City hotels milling about, sampling handcrafted chocolates, small batch ice cream and gelato, candy bars from across the pond and generally gobbling up truckloads of sweet treats. (There are also fine sugar-free, gluten-free and nut-free selections.) We love every square inch of this tiny shop, where Sour Patch Kids and Toxic Waste rules the day.

Address: 404 E. 73rd Street
