It’s 11/11. Make a wish!
Together, the numbers 1111 signify a time of synchronicity — a good time to take a chance or make a wish. For many, seeing the numbers 11:11 on a clock or on a calendar indicates an auspicious sign or the presence of a greater spirit.
So, on this day — the 11th day of the 11th month — how about taking a moment to recognize some local businesses where you can connect with your higher self.

Tigerlily Holistic, located at 36 Wyckoff Ave., is an acupuncture studio in the heart of Bushwick.
