At Central Park Medical Practice, Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova treats patients by engaging her two specialties: women?s medicine and aesthetics. Her gynecology and fertility treatments maintain reproductive health, and her beauty services enhance physiques. Microdermabrasion, for example, sloughs away the skin?s rough surface layer, exposing the more youthful hide beneath; laser hair removal?s long pulses of light noninvasively reduce stubble and destroy any miniature planets orbiting the head.
Instead of setting up shop inside a brick-and-mortar building, Classtivity stretches its fitness-bestowing reach throughout five cities, inviting people to burn calories, tone muscles, or find inner peace—all on their own schedule. Students simply search for the type of class they wish to take, such as yoga, cardio dance, or strength training, along with the time, price range, and location, before booking it online. With hundreds of activities and 20,000 available classes, the right class is always just around the corner. The company even includes classes in artistic pursuits such as guitar and painting. Classtivity’s CEO and founder Payal Kadakia sums up the business’s philosophy succinctly: “Because finding a class shouldn’t be harder than taking one.”

Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
Originally called the Austin, this vintage 1930s theater has seen several ups and downs in its history, from years as a second-run double-feature house to a red-tinted stint that got it shut down by the city. In its current incarnation, the Kew Gardens Cinemas flaunts restored art-deco flair alongside modern projectors and molar-rocking surround sound. Stadium seating and a fully stocked concession stand further complement current flicks by granting every set of eyes a great view and every set of dental braces something to hold during scary scenes. Swing by the theater with a friend to snack on your own small popcorns (a $5 value each) and sip sodas (a $3.50 value each) while enjoying a vintage movie-viewing experience that beats watching Betamax tapes on your Great Uncle Vinnie's 1978 Zenith.
