    Comment:  as nice as it was to have the whole place to ourselves this afternoon, i was a little concerned for the future of their business. it is a wonderfully lovely origami studio on 7th ave between union and president, 2nd floor. it isn't very visible as you walk down 7th ave which is another reason i feel the need to plug them. they offer classes for adults and kids as well as drop in. my 6 year old had a great time there.

    Comment:  Just wanted to let everyone know that Taro's Origami Studio, the cutest origami store/classroom/birthday party space ON EARTH, recently opened on 7th Avenue, between Union and President Streets. It's upstairs, next door to Seven Nails.I have no affiliation with them whatsoever, and my 3-year-old son is a little too young to try it out, but I walked in the other day and was astonished by the sweetness of the space. There are several tables (both kid-sized and adult-sized) in a large room lined with gorgeous paper. The tables are set with iPads at every other seat that I assume help to teach the folding. The woman at the front desk was delightful. I wanted to stay for hours. I kind of want to live there.They offer classes and parties for kids ages 5-12, and classes for adults. And though I think this would be an amazing activity for parents to share with their children, it's also in perfect proximity to my favorite nail salon and would make sense as a place to drop older kids while you get a long, luxurious pedicure next door.Check them out and let's keep them in business!(November 2011)
