The auto experts at Broadway Tires keep cars running smoothly by way of engine and tire services, returning rides to customers within 24 hours following repairs. Just as sprinters need running shoes to run and horses need horse-drawn carriages to get around, cars need tires to perform optimally, which is why Broadway Tires carries reputable tires from brands such as Michelin, Goodyear, Yokohama, and Pirelli. An onsite mechanic sees to the maintenance of these rubber shoes with tire rotations and balancing, and also performs oil changes, emissions testing, transmission maintenance, and engine replacement.
Amity Car Wash & Detail Center scours vehicles inside and out with four wash packages—the top two of which include a 48-hour rain guarantee—and three detailing packages. Blue Coral and Simoniz products play major parts in the effort to supply every vehicle with a just-cleaned shine. When not drying cars with hand towels or feeding hood ornaments treats for sitting still, the shop's crew helps local schools, clubs, and sports teams raise money and protect the environment through a Think Green fundraising program.
Copiague Auto Wash takes care of cars from bumper to bumper. Each automated wash includes a run through the air-hose drying system, which blasts offending water drops and leaves the car as dry as the Sandman’s mouth. After a spin through the mechanized wash, drivers can turn their roadsters over to the shop’s detailers for some waxing, shampooing, or interior wiping.
Mike Tarascio's life changed forever in 1981 when a business partner offered him a ride to a conference in New Jersey—not in a town car or on a tandem bicycle, but in a small private airplane. The very next year, Mike bought an airplane of his own and founded the business that would eventually become Ventura Aviation. Today, he, his wife, and their sons operate their business out of Republic Airport, where they use their fleet of Learjets, Piper Warriors, and a helicopter to train a new generation of skyborne adventurers. Their goal is to introduce clients to the limitless lifestyle and freedom that comes with personal aviation, and inspire others to make the life-changing decision to learn to fly.
