New York, New York Salon and Spa

Our new location simply allows the space needed for everything to breathe.

New York, New York has renovated a dreary historic building to a stunning full-service salon and spa located on 1201 N. Market St. Built in 1878, the mansion served as a funeral home from 1950 to 2014.

Today, the 8,000- square-foot facility boasts 21 styling stations, a men’s grooming lounge, four manicure stations, five pedicure stations, five makeup stations, a wash house and five full-service spa areas.

“Our new location simply allows the space needed for everything to breathe,” said New York, New York Hair Salon and Day Spa owner Mary Louise Riser, who has worked in the beauty industry for four decades. “I want clients to have a beautiful space where they can relax, have a cup of tea, read a book and enjoy their experience.”

The building weaves the classic architecture of the 1878 foundation as a colonial mansion with modern sleek designs, such as glass shelving and leather furniture. In an effort to preserve as much of the original architecture as possible, the original German shiplap siding was left exposed. In addition, the hand-painted wallpaper and all seven fireplaces remain intact.

Utilizing what is commonly called adaptive reuse, Riser rehabilitated the property, repairing structural challenges, including termite damage, severe water damage and asbestos. She retrofitted the entire space without removing internal walls. Today, the salon has been transformed into a luxurious space that is hip with a hint of history.

“We congratulate New York, New York Hair Salon and Day Spa on the completion of a remarkable rehabilitative and adaptive reuse project,” said Bobby Baumler, economic development manager for the City of Frederick. “Restoration of this historic home demonstrates a substantial business investment, and we wish New York, New York continued success as the salon embarks on its next 30 years in the City of Frederick.”
