Paragon Sports (New York, NY)
Since it was opened in 1908, Paragon has been a one-stop shop that covers all of your sporting gear needs — from stocking up on badminton birdies to full-size kayaks — which is impressive in Manhattan. "We're a multilevel store, but we still have departments and athletes and experts in each of those for every sport you could want," says Zachary Blank, vice president of Paragon. "It is the quintessential New York."
