store for molecular gastronomy ingredients/ tools

I'm looking for a store that would carry a good variety of chemicals and tools for molecular gastronomy. I usually order the ingredients online, but I am hosting a dinner party tomorrow night and recently moved and can't find the box with all of my chemicals. Really in need of sodium alginate and calcium chloride for apple caviar.

Any suggestions for stores in Manhattan?

Thanks a lot.

    1. I've never seen things like that for sale in a store in New York. You can try to go to a restaurant like Tailor (Sam does stuff like that all the time) and see if you can get some. There is a chance that JB Prince might have it, but I've never seen it in their catalog ( and they're located in the 30's on the east side.
