Founded by husband-and-wife botanists Nathaniel Lord Britton and Elizabeth Gertrude Knight Britton in 1891, the New York Botanical Garden has been a destination of natural beauty for generations of New York residents and beyond.

With spring currently blanketing the city with color, garden staffers spend their days busily preparing for 2014's packed festival season. May brings the sound of popped corks during Wine in the Native Plants Garden, giving guests the chance to take a leisurely tour. The festivities continue in June, when 4,000 blooming flowers herald the beginning of the Rose Garden Celebration. Of course, it's not all delicate flowers. The Big Backyard BBQ & Music Festival on Father's Day weekend lets guests celebrate dad with chipper tunes and food samples.

These festive occasions all support the garden's mission is to be "an advocate for the plant kingdom." Much like the Brittons, today's staffers aim to lead the charge to document every species of plant and fungus on the planet. Varied terrains unfurl across its 250 acres, including rolling hills, waterfalls, and 50 acres of the forest that once blanketed New York City. In addition to native plants, rotating exhibitions and family events give visitors a reason to come back every season.

As the recession deepened, Metro Art & Frame owner Bo Okuyan found that demand never slackened for one market of art collectors: parents. Mr. Okuyan's business savvy caught the attention of the New York Times' Michael Winerip in 2010, who noted that a steady supply of finger paintings and crafts had caused Bo to rethink his definition of art. “All kids are artists, that’s how we look at it now,” he said. Whether upgrading fridge-hung stick-figure portraits to a permanent gallery or framing a more traditionally priceless painting, Mr. Okuyan and his staff begin with a complimentary consultation, tailoring each project to fit home or office aesthetics and personal style. Metro Art & Frame's acid-free mats center photographs, oil paintings, or post-modern puddles of spilled milk in an ornate, gold-leafed frame or elegant black one. Five types of glass and two flavors of plexiglass guard sensitive paintings from light damage with UV protection, and the shop's selection of contemporary and classic prints lets patrons fill in the gaps in their home galleries.

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.
