Exchange Place Florist

2

I received the most beautiful bouquet of flowers last week from a place that wasn’t even on my radar. It forever will be now. Exchange Place Florist is the bomb. They serve up fresh flowers, plants, gourmet gift baskets and outfit weddings, corporate events, lobby decor, funerals…you name it. Jenny (from the block) will hook you up. (201) 435-1997. They’re located at 33 Hudson St. (corner of Greene and Morris). Enjoy!
