When you live at North Shore Towers
and Country Club, you don’t have to go
very far to find something to do or be
pampered thanks to the wide variety of
amenities made available to residents.
Want to go swimming and relax by the
pool in the middle of winter? No problem.
After all, North Shore Towers offers “the
best amenities around and you can have
a winter staycation right here at home,”
according to Debra Markell Kleinert, head
of marketing and media for North Shore
Towers and a resident there for four years.
“Living here at North Shore Towers in
winter we don’t have to go anywhere,” she
says, noting that the amenities include an
indoor pool, spa, health club, and gym.
“You need a backrub? We have it. You
need a facial? We have it. You want to just
lounge around the pool? We can.”
What you get is “hotel-style living here
at home,” she says.
And the amenities are for all ages, from
toddler to adult, Kleinert says, adding that
she and other residents can “just relax
here at home and never have to leave –
whatever the weather is.”
Helping to provide at least some of the
many amenities to North Shore Towers
residents for more than 40 years has been
Pouran Eshghi, president of Pouran &
Company and, with her husband Kia,
owner of three businesses located within
the indoor arcade: Pouran Boutique,
selling specialty clothing and handbags,
Pouran’s Salon and Med Spa, and the fullservice
Pouran Beauty Salon.
Kleinert notes that she is one of Pouran’s
many customers and goes to her spa for
facials. After a facial or a massage, you can
then “go right down to the steam room or
sauna and right into the pool,” Kleinert
says, adding that her husband, Barry,
especially enjoys the hot tub.
Pouran has been in business at North
Shore Towers for more than 40 years,
Glen Kotowski, general manager at North
Shore Towers points out, adding that
Pouran’s beauty salon was there from the
Pouran, who has a theater background,
has a staff of more than 25 at her beauty
shop and a smaller staff at the more
intimate spa. The holiday season has been
“very hectic and busy for us,” she says.
What helps to keep up with that busy
schedule, she adds, is the apartment she
has at North Shore Towers in addition to
her home in the Hamptons.
In her 40 or so years at North Shore
Towers in all, Pouran has served countless
customers, many of whom have been loyal
customers for decades.
“It’s like a family and we have a lot of
feelings for our clients,” she says.
Pouran Boutique, which has been in
business for about 30 years, offers a truly
unique variety of products, including fine,
upscale Italian clothing for both men and
“It’s a true pampering experience when
you go to Pouran,” says Linda Rappaport,
on-site real estate broker.
Customers “just love coming there and
getting pampered and feeling like they
look like a movie star when they walk
out,” Rappaport says, adding that Pouran
“treats people like family and it’s like her
What’s especially great is that all
residents have to do is press an elevator
button to go down and be pampered with
everything from manicures and pedicures
to massages and facials without leaving
the complex. In all, what you get at North
Shore Towers is luxury living at its finest.
Other luxury apartment complexes
don’t come close to providing what North
Shore Towers offers. You can even grab a
hot chocolate in a relaxing environment
when you’re there. In addition to all the
amenities noted above, you also get a
movie theater on premises and other

scratched the surface.

Club is “looking forward to another
great season,” according to Mary Anne
