It would be great to have the addresses and phone number listed with the business. I would love to take advantage of the in home consultation but don't know where Anna Cangiano is located.

Hi Tina, to get more info on all these businesses, just click on the business name in each numbered listing (i.e. 1. Tarrytown Music Hall) to go their respective directory page on Patch. If there isn't a Patch listing, they'll be linked to their website. Sorry for any confusion!
