Situated on 63 acres of Mitchel Field—a former military base—Nassau Coliseum is dedicated to those who lost their lives while serving their country. When its doors opened four decades ago, this entertainment hub became a portal, transporting crowds to hours of sound and spectacle. Since then, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus has performed every year, racking up the record for most performances, followed closely by the Grateful Dead, which has permeated the air with its brand of jam 35 times, leaving audiences exhilarated and hankering for peanut butter and bread.
Given the knowledge and experience that comes from long careers in the NHL, AHL, and IHL—not to mention Peter's spot on the 1994 U.S. Olympic team—the identical Ferraro twins know what they're doing when it comes to ice hockey. Whether playing for the Rangers or simply conquering a big old meatball sub, the duo shares every experience—and now, they plan to open a state-of-the-art 85,000-square-foot hockey facility in the fall of 2013. Equipped with two NHL regulation rinks, an outdoor recreational rink, and a partnership with the Long Island Gulls and the New York Bobcats, the new facility will host camps and clinics for youth and adult hockey players.

Each time they enter Body in Balance Yoga and Pilates, students could find a different class in session. They might walk in to see a mat Pilates session or an energetic Zumba dance class. Whatever the class, students will always find an attentive instructor, whose yogic roots may have been forged through childhood interest or time spent twisting pretzels at a bakery for hours on end. No matter how they arrived at their practice, class leaders are eager to share their passion as they guide students through flexibility- and strength-boosting classes, such as hatha yoga, which draws from more than 200 postures and meditation techniques to bring tranquility to minds and bodies. Pilates leads students through core-building strength routines on mats or specialized machines. Students can use one of the studio's mats for free during their first week, but afterward should bring their own or purchase a mat from the onsite retail shop.
