Any well rounded man knows that he has to exercise, not just to stay fit and look his best, but most importantly to remain healthy, for as they say, that body is indeed a temple. And whether you’re a climber, a biker, a goalie, or shooting guard, you’re going to need some good gear.
The best place in New York to get it, Paragon Sports. In business since 1908, their flagship store on 18th and Broadway is a temple to all things athletic. Looking for hockey skates, soccer jerseys, mountain climbing gear, a new bike, or anything in between, Paragon is stocked up.
With respect to other sporting goods stores and merchants in general, Manhattan real estate is expensive, and square footage is at a premium for sure, creating space issues for vendors that stock a variety of wares, many of which are large with assembly required. And admittedly, the internet has created a whole new way for the modern athlete to get kitted out, but sometimes you just have to grip that bat for yourself, get the feel of that racket on your backswing, or take a couple of swipes with that new hockey stick. Paragon understands this, and their inventory is a testament to the demands of athletes of all skill levels, from the recreational to the pro.
Team jerseys a plenty, top gear for sports such as baseball, football, basketball, tennis, hockey, soccer, and a superb “outdoorsman” section on their top floor, Paragon is one-stop shopping for all of your athletic needs, whether its for a solid holiday purchase or just plain everyday use.
New York City spatial restrictions or not, in terms of inventory and selection, Paragon stacks up with any sporting goods store period. Check them out the next time you’re in need of some new gear, or if you happen to find yourself in Union Square. A simple browse through the store is a great way to pass an afternoon for any red blooded American male. Just be careful, you’re going to want to bring a lot of new stuff home.
