Now in their second season as the top AHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, the Albany Devils have officially traded their pitchforks for hockey sticks as they continue to scorch the ice toward a potential playoff berth. Through 52 games, the Devils have glided into the top half of the Eastern Conference behind right winger Joe Whitney, whose 12 goals and incandescent helmet have led the way to 24 victories thus far. Center Steve Zalewski has chipped in 28 points of his own, and rookie goalie Keith Kinkaid marks his territory nightly by barricading the net with his collection of youth-league trophies just one year after steering Union College to their most successful campaign in school history.

Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.

Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.

In order to reach the finish line of the Urban Raid obstacle course, participants must hoist a sandbag, leap over marine hurdles, and scale a cargo net. The course is designed to emulate a run through the city streets, right up to the finish line, which is actually a climbing wall. It's one branch of The Raid Series, a trifecta of terrain-inspired 5Ks that also include the Mountain Raid and Beach Raid.

The licensed guides at Ghosts of New York usher guests on fun and spooky walking tours starring some of the city's most infamous sites. Explore the Big Apple's eerie side with Ghosts of the City, which seeks out the spirits of Walt Whitman, P.T. Barnum, and Joe Piscopo's career. Literary buffs will thrill to the pursuit of Edgar Allan Poe and fellow Greenwich Village specters Aaron Burr, Eleanor Roosevelt, and her pet dog Fala, said to be chasing its insubstantial tail to this day. Seekers of more modern frightening fare may opt for the Ghosts of the Upper West Side tour, which starts from the Ghostbusters building and moves on to highlight the haunts of Irving Berlin and John Lennon. Check out the calendar to plan your tour.
