"The whole world is my garden," author and naturalist Steve Brill told the Los Angeles Times in 2012?and he means that literally. For more than 32 years, the naturalist has been taking groups into the relative wilds of New York City and beyond to find treasures?edible ones?in parks and other public areas. From identifying mushrooms to knowing where medicinal plants are likely to grow, he helps tour-goers open their eyes to wild foods that have always been right in front of them and even provides recipes to help them make the most of their finds.
The technicians of At Your Best, Inc. focus on Cavi-Lipo. The nonsurgical Cavi-Lipo machine is placed on top of the skin, and releases ultrasonic waves that help dissolve and shrink fat cells. The technician moves the machine's wand across the belly, waist, back, arms, or any other area that could use some slimming or tightening. Over the course of the treatments, the number of which varies from customer to customer, patients often feel healthier and report that their pants fit more flatteringly.

The images and mementos decorating the walls of Professors Diner embody a host of rich memories for owner Kevin "The Professor" Denis. “The walls are the community,” Denis told the Kings Park Patch. Nearly every inch of space is crammed with personal history that takes the form of Denis’s own family photos as well as school pennants donated by local regulars. Vintage Coca-Cola mugs, signs, and clocks mingle with American-flag-clad cows and pictures of the New York Yankees. The food is as eclectic as the decor, running the gamut from old-fashioned french toast to honey-dipped southern fried chicken to greek spinach pies. Diners fill teal booths and sit at the counter in back for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all eight days of the week.
