While it takes an extra effort to get me to travel above 34th Street, a complimentary facial was more than enough incentive to visit Ettia Holistic Day Spa (239 W 72nd Street #2), one of the New York City spas participating in Spa Week.

The cozy Upper West Side spa is tiny, with two treatment rooms for facials and two for massages. But as I soon discovered, it's the little spa that could.

Named after its former owner, Ettia is offering several $50 treatments for Spa Week, including a Holistic Facia and Dead Sea Salt Jewel Body Scrub. But I opted for the Fruit Enzyme Peel (normally $90; choice of coconut/papaya; raspberry/peach; lemon zest; pomegranate; or blueberry enzyme), which boosts and brightens the skin.

My aesthetician was Ala, a friendly and skilled skincare specialist. The treatment comes with a mini facial complete with extractions, a face and neck massage, a face masque and a heated moisturizing hand treatment. What a bargain, right? Ala's hands were soothing and the 45-minute session left my skin youthful and glowing.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
