Windows on the Lake blurs the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, lending a serene, pastoral air to everything from Thanksgiving dinners to weddings. Two stories of floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Lake Ronkonkoma and the grounds that hug it. Manicured gardens beckon diners for a post-prandial stroll among colorful foliage and babbling brooks.
Those grounds also usher brides and grooms to the outdoor gazebo, where they say their vows and wrestle for the title of "Head of Household." In the Rainbow Room, however, the line between indoors and outdoors seems to vanish altogether. A ceiling painted like the sky looms over a hardwood dance floor ringed with white-clothed tables?and the illusion extends to the pastoral murals that alternate with the room's floor-to-ceiling windows.

"If you can walk, you can jump." It's a great slogan to cross-stitch on a pillow, but at Air Trampoline Sports, it's also the rule that determines who can hit the fun center's 16,000 square feet of trampolines. Visitors from toddlers through adults frolic on the bouncy surfaces or show off their trampoline-assisted ups on the two basketball slam dunk lanes. The three dodgeball courts, meanwhile, host both casual games and tournaments, made extra-epic by the fact dodging can involve leaping over the ball.
1019 Cafe's vittle wizards fill their lunch and dinner menus with a selection of delectable dishes ranging from pasta and hamburgers to lobster tails and filet mignon. Noontime noshers can split starters such as garlic-and-oil steamed clams ($10) before wrapping hands around a marinated-steak sandwich slathered in melted mozzarella and flanked by french fries ($13). During dinner, majestic meal toppings hold court over a kingdom of sumptuous dishes, commanding an almond-crusted flounder to bow before a sweet mango salsa ($19), or a juicy 14-ounce filet mignon to dance under a drizzle of decadent mushroom-merlot sauce ($30). A low-carb menu keeps things lighter than a feather-filled balloon, and a kids’ menu satisfies the most petite of patrons.
Spas, gyms, wine bars. A tattoo studio, a salmon smokehouse, a recruiting company. Frank Dima has helped a long, diverse list of businesses represent themselves through film at New York Business Video Inc. These dynamic videos, which businesses put on their websites and show at special events, are as unique as the subjects themselves: they might feature interviews with owners and staff members, testimonials, footage of meetings, or—after a liberal application of blush—detailed close-ups of products.
