Center for the Arts produces unique music, dance, and comedy performances from the campus of the College of Staten Island. Its children's series brings light-hearted whimsy to that most somber of life stages. Center for the Arts' upcoming kid-friendly offerings include the musical Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great, featuring the talent of the ArtsPower National Touring Theatre. The play brings Judy Blume's novel to life as 10-year-old Sheila Tubman deals with hilarious coming-of-age struggles when she moves to Tarrytown, N.Y., for the summer. Black Violin melds together classical music and hip-hop, as two violinists and a DJ fuse the two sonic genres in a way unheard since Beethoven's Symphony No. 12: Mo' Measures, Mo' Problems. Rainbow Fish, also presented by the ArtsPower National Touring Theatre, emphasizes the importance of friendship and generosity in a far more effective fashion than last season's production of Rumble Fish.

Since its beginnings in 1980, Staten Island Fencing Club has developed the skills of collegiate athletes and Olympic hopefuls under the guidance of head coach and founder Steve Khinoy, a Johns Hopkins PhD with more than 30 years of coaching experience. In 2010, the club—once relegated to college cafeterias and church basements—took up permanent residence at Staten Island Fencing Center, a full-time facility as bright and spacious as the Man in the Moon's front yard, complete with fencing strips, an armory, and a pro shop. There, Dr. Khinoy cultivates an atmosphere of camaraderie, teaching both novice and advanced swordsmen to master the Olympic and NCAA sport's triumvirate of blades: foils, sabers, and épées.

Under President and Coach Susan Monardo, the center's focus has been to help both the recreational fencer and competitive fencer reach their goals. Beyond one-hour introductory lessons, regular courses stretch for several weeks, during which competitors learn the strategies and fancy footwork necessary to best opponents on the piste and during freestyle dance contests. Summertime day camps and clinics sharpen slashing technique with five hours of daily instruction that include warm-ups, basic drills, and individual lessons. The staff also hosts parties for birthdays or other celebrations, in which guests practice the art of dueling amid cake, refreshments, and bouquets of colorful balloons shrieking in terror.

Across a 100-foot main deck, passengers cast their lures into Sheepshead Bay from the wide aisles, benches, and extended pulpit of the Ranger VI. With the help of three 650-horsepower John Deere engines, Captain Joe steers the fishing boat out onto the salty waters for half- and full-day fishing trips. He also captains overnight and offshore specialty charters for up to 20.

Inside the boat, his passengers take advantage of restrooms with running water and purchase refreshments at the galley before seating themselves at tables and booths. Plus, they can head up to the second-floor sun deck in order to better search for marine life and befriend seagulls.

At Chelsea Playground's Kids' Village, little ones can try on many different roles. They can be a firefighter by hopping into a fire truck parked just outside the village firehouse, or pretend they're like mom and dad by shopping for some last-minute dinner items at the grocery store. Of course, they can always perch at the counter in the diner to recreate Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, too. Alternately, they can blow off some steam by scaling the rock climbing wall or navigating the slides and tunnels in the three-level play structure. The playground is also a great place for parties, featuring private celebration rooms and a dedicated host to help with cleanup and setup.
