You might see "Motown" or "80s" on the schedule, but InSync Cycle Studio is not a dance venue. These events still involve plenty of legwork, though—students pedal aboard stationary bikes as invigorating music blares all the while. During these sessions, they'll surmount imaginary hills with real resistance, or zoom through long straightaways at high speeds. Some might be marathoners, and others might be first-timers. It doesn't matter to the instructor at the head of the class, who makes sure that everyone's workout is suited to their experience.
Typically, these instructors are the ones in charge of the music. Most classes aren't themed, but follow a mix of tunes that mesh with the teacher's taste. Some will even time the rhythm of their inclines and sprints to match the song, which is why "Flight of the Bumblebee" has been banned forever. Regardless of the soundtrack, each low-impact lesson helps to tone muscle and build endurance in a communal, encouraging space.
Of all of New York’s exports, perhaps one of the most ubiquitous is the New York–style bagel. In the early 20th century, a Polish immigrant named Isador Goldberg came to New York and brought his own recipe for this classic baked good with him, and it’s in his honor that the owners of Goldberg’s New York Bagels decided to name their shop. The Zagat-rated bakers still use Goldberg’s original recipe, assembling ingredients from scratch, boiling the halos of dough, and finally baking them to give each bagel the perfect crunch that pairs well with a schmear of cream cheese or a layer of lox. Though the bagels come in a range of sweet and savory flavors, all of them are kosher-certified and easily pair with other breakfast items such as omelets, four flavors of blintzes, and waffles. The shop opens at 7 a.m. to serve both breakfast and lunch all day, allowing clients to stock up on staples such as sandwiches, frozen yogurt, or salad-bar selections all day long.
After emigrating to Baltimore from Palermo, Italy, Gioacchino Vaccaro wanted to share the pastries of his homeland with his new neighbors. In 1956, he founded his eponymous pastry shop, an establishment that has since expanded to include four locations. The culinary team dishes out cannoli that ensconce homemade ricotta filling, three-tiered rum cake, and crunchy biscotti cookies.
Beyond pastries, the eateries toast paninis and stuff classic mufalato sandwiches with Italian pepper ham, mortadella, and salami. To complement their meals, visitors can sip hand-crafted espresso drinks, such as cappuccinos in traditional “Italiano” style and house style, served with a dollop of whipped cream. For more adult pours, patrons can opt for assorted martinis, beers, and dessert wines.
At Ginza Japanese Restaurant, fine dining is as much about the presentation as the taste. Hibachi chefs take to the dining room to cook up flavorful meals of filet mignon, teriyaki chicken, and fresh seafood right before diners' eyes, and then amp up the wow factor by constructing fiery volcanoes out of onion rings and making normally land-bound shrimp fly. The restaurant's sushi chefs are equally fastidious about presentation. Their selection of rainbow-hued makis include the fantastic roll, which features spicy tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, along with marble seaweed and tempura flakes.
If you'd asked Patricia Hawse about holistic medicine in early 2005, she'd say that it wasn't really her thing, and probably want to know where you found that time machine. But her perspective?and life?changed after Hurricane Katrina. While serving with the Red Cross in Louisiana, she saw firsthand how the practice of yoga and meditation helped relief workers. Patti dedicated herself to sharing the benefits of holistic medicine, and founded KarmaFest soon after. Today, the annual event continues to welcome attendees for days filled with spiritual healing workshops, metaphysical therapy, and meditation.
