The soft light of the setting sun creeps across the water. Above the placid reflection, a paddle boarder floats silently. These quiet moments are what Step Into Liquid's instructors hope to give to their pupils. Along the north and south shores of Long Island, they help groups balance atop boards during lessons or tours, which pass by resplendent coastal homes. The personal watercrafts also serve as floating mats for on-water yoga workouts, which call students to stretch their muscles and strengthen their cores.
Hand-painted murals of surreal city skylines, rolling fields, and sunrise-speckled ocean views surround customers inside The Hub, a full service bicycle shop and service center. In the midst of the modern artwork, a dedicated crew works to equip riders with gear for pedaling past similar scenes in the natural world, relying on expertise they’ve gleaned from working in development and design with K2 bikes to maintain and repair rides. The knowledgeable staff guides cyclists through expansive show-room floors filled with parts, helmets, and bicycles of various styles including BMX, road bikes, mountain bikes, and beach cruisers from brands such as BMC, Kona, Bianchi, and K2. Bike riders themselves, the staffers work to educate each customer who walks through the door, championing the environmentally friendly form of transportation beloved by small, lazy dogs in baskets everywhere.

Cedarbrook Country Club incorporates the rustic beauty of the New York countryside with a 6,658-yard golf course lined with mature trees and vibrant landscape features. Each fairway bottlenecks through groves of timbers, requiring golfers to exhibit accuracy off the tee and keep claustrophobic golf carts from fleeing to the open driving range. Slow-starting swings can work their kinks out early in the round, as an errant shot on the first hole—a 490-yard par 5 that gently doglegs left—won't necessarily derail a chance at saving par or sneaking a quick snooze in the long grass.
Before rounds, golfers can loosen up at the multifaceted practice facility, where practice balls soar over the driving range and roll over a practice green. Class A PGA instructor Tom Herzog runs the pro shop and teaches private and group lessons.
Racket-wielding guests can slide and shuffle across the soft, Har-Tru surface of the club's 13 tennis courts or hit flush forehands off the walls of two racquetball courts. The private establishment also encompasses a 300-seat ballroom, cocktail lounge, and a swimming pool for those who prefer chlorine-rich libations.

- 18-hole, par-72 course
- Length of 6,658 yards from the farthest tees
