Aboard the motor coach, Anderson Cooper sank lower in his seat, grinning and pulling his hat over his eyes as a friendly rapper called him out by name. But this rapper wasn't on-board the coach. Instead, he was spitting his rhymes from the sidewalk outside, performing for an audience on one of The Ride's interactive New York City tours. Though unique, Mr. Cooper's experience has been shared by hundreds of other famous personalities, tourists, and locals. Floor-to-ceiling windows cover the entire right side and roof of each of The Ride's custom built-motor coaches, breaking the fourth wall as they ensure that not only can passengers view the city, but the city can look back in. Due to their popularity, The Ride's tours have been chronicled by media outlets such as New York Live, Good Morning America, and The Today Show.
As each motor coach embarks on its tour through 4.2 miles of Midtown, guides encourage group participation with song, dance, and question-and-answer sessions, much like any good meeting with a tax accountant. With the aid of 40 plasma monitors displaying images and historical information, they also divulge facts about landmarks such as Central Park, 42nd Street, and Grand Central Station. As the bus travels alongside famous buildings and city sidewalks, passengers encounter a range of characters. Some are regular New Yorkers, but others are company performers in disguise. Rappers, dancers, singers, and actors leap from the crowd to entertain their mobile audiences with impromptu live routines, and sometimes pull audience members into the show. Surround-sound stereo, wireless microphones, and external speakers allow audiences to hear the performances from their seats, unlike pedestrians outside, who have to hop on a neighbor's shoulders to get a better view.
"Even the City that Never Sleeps needs a nap," jokes Nicolas Ronco, the owner and CEO of YeloSpa, which serves as an urban oasis for New York's overworked and overtired masses.
YeloSpa welcomes guests into a boldly colored cocoon of maroon and yellow—colors chosen by Ronco based on Tibetan monks' robes and sashes. The colors relate to specific chakras in the body, with maroon representing the chakra of vision and intuition, and yellow representing the revitalizing spirit of the heart chakra.
Once inside private nap rooms, or YeloCabs, clients gain total control over the atmosphere. They can tailor the color of the lighting, the soundtrack, and even the aroma to their personal preferences. "You can be in the jungle or you can be in a coffee shop in Vienna," Ronco says. The cushioned, leather chairs recline back so far that clients' legs are elevated over their heart, which creates a mild sense of weightlessness, gently slows heart rates, and helps guests sink into a deep state of relaxation. With these conditions, falling asleep is effortless.
The spa’s more traditional services are completely customized to each individual based on an initial consultation. Massage therapists can incorporate everything from relaxing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to more focused reflexology techniques, depending on the client's needs. Aestheticians use custom blends of balms and salves from the Éminence and Kerstin Florian lines of skincare products. Their facials can even include microcurrent treatments, LED therapy, or microdermabrasion, if necessary.

re:AB Pilates owner Brooke Siler started her Pilates instruction in 1994, and within two years was conducting training on floor mats in her living room or the client's homes. Her business continued to expand, and in 1997 she was able to move out of the living room and open re:AB Pilates. Before she allows trainers to bring their skills to re:AB Pilates, they must perfect their craft over the course of at least 700 hours. That's the amount of time required to earn Pilates certification, which ensures their classes follow Joseph Pilates' original principles. The instructors draw upon this expertise to teach Pilates sessions in a variety of styles, warmly motivating their students to strengthen their cores and increase their flexibility. Mat classes, for example, can introduce beginners to the fitness style or move at a quick pace appropriate for more experienced students. Their equipment-based classes take place on the reformer—Pilates' signature resistance-doling apparatus—or incorporate other tools, including the Pilates tower, the Magic Circle, or the Wunda Chair. Through all of their classes, the instructors emphasize achieving an overall healthy lifestyle over quickly losing weight to fit back into your elementary-school snow pants.
