Our Hump Day suggestions tend to take you to the far corners of the web for some esoteric, entertaining, and/or just plain oddball pursuits; these websites are based much closer to home and some of them might actually be of use to you…

Scales Galore
This Brooklyn company makes scales, um, galore: for food, babies, pets, labs, and for whatever else you might need a scale.

Manhattan Reefs
Beef up your reefs and load up on Congo Tetra for your home aquarium.

Science and the City
Science-related events, exhibits, and conferences are put under the microscope (oh, har) on this website. A terrific resource.

Refinery 29
This is a cool concept: interactive maps of select, exceptional, specialty retail stores in New York, giving you the vibe of the place, what they do well, a couple of photos, location info, and website link.

Central Park
We've never seen Central Park looking better: it's extraordinarily well cared for, all the major spots are in top shape, and we keep happening upon many small, delightful touches such as new footpaths.
