Each vessel in Island Current’s four-boat fleet ferries 21–110 passengers across the fish-filled waters of Long Island Sound and Snug Harbor. Fishing charters reel in catches such as blackfish, ling, and cod, and sightseeing tours fill eyes with up-close views of the Statue of Liberty, historic lighthouses, and other landmarks. After each schooner sets sail from City Island at Jack’s Bait & Tackle, fleet owner Captain Chris comes on deck to share his angling expertise and introduce first-time fishermen to knowledgeable local mermaids.
The Wimbledon-weathered teachers of Roosevelt Island Racquet Club and the other swinging locations arm their pupils with world-class expertise from top-ranked international players. Atop New York Tennis Club's and Roosevelt Island's clay courts or the hardtops of the others, students congregate once weekly to work on their forehands, backhands, overheads, and underfoots in a lively series of games and drills (buyers may rank their preferred schedule online). This deal also includes 15% off racquet purchase or restringing, tennis balls, demo racquets and balls for loan, and a one-month membership to the clubs, granting temporary access to the clubs' game-arranging services and exclusive rates on programs, workshops, and open-court reservations (summer rates for members range from $50–$68/hour, about $35 less than non-member fees), as well as exclusive tips for bleaching accidentally tie-dyed tennis whites.
Once upon a time, a deserted stretch of Commerce Avenue may have been enough to make even the most unflinching New Yorker jumpy after dark. But today, something truly terrifying is lurking in the borough. Haunted-house vets Timothy Haskell, Bobby Ferrara, and Steve Kopelman have unleashed a horrifying host of zombies into this fog-filled, strobe-lit warehouse, where groups of willing victims must navigate each twist and turn if they hope to save their delicious brains. To make it through the 15- to 20-minute journey alive, guests must steady their nerves against loud noises, uneven footing, and tight spaces, as well as actors who may try to touch them or pass them a copy of their newest headshot.
For more than 25 years, the martial-arts masters at USA Martial Arts New York have worked toward one goal: to improve their students’ mental and physical strength. They achieve this goal through an assortment of martial-arts and cardio classes designed to help students of virtually any age and skill level to master control of their bodies while gaining self-confidence and discipline. Students looking to shed calories without the monotony of the gym can heave blows into heavy bags during cardio kickboxing classes.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
