The coaches at Peekskill Fencing Center are living evidence fencing involves far more than lucky lunges. Some have competed at the national level, and two have spent years coaching teams—Cal Schlick, for example, taught at the U.S. Naval Academy, and has medaled in several tournaments. Applying their skills and experience, the instructors lead lessons for all ages and experience levels.
Classes cover beginner and intermediate techniques with the foil, as well as the Japanese art of Kendo and sessions on competitive play. Peekskill Fencing Center delivers personal attention to all of its students and ensures that no one's sword has the same nickname. Pupils can also schedule private classes to receive even more thorough feedback on their technique. Students of all skill levels strive to sharpen their focus, footwork, agility, and balance with each practice. And, for the opportunity to see a professional sparring demonstration, they can even plan a birthday party through the center.
They call themselves “Hardwarians.” The employees of Feinsod Hardware, a True Value store, know the ins and outs of home improvement and can lead customers to the best tools for any do-it-yourself project. Shelves stock everything from power tools by Master Mechanic and DeWalt to ready-made accessories for grills, cars, and even pets, plus all the hardware accoutrements for doors, cabinets, and gingerbread houses. The Hardwarians also offer services, including key cutting, knife sharpening and grill servicing.
Owner Ken Buchler doesn't cut corners. He and his highly trained technicians always perform preservice consultations and postservice surveys to maximize customer experience. Clients may also solicit a contractor for home-renovation projects, such as deck staining and hardwood-floor installation, or meet with the company's on-staff color consultant for decorating help during interior-painting projects.
No matter where you turn, Sander Hicks's woodwork is probably nearby—the writer, investigative journalist, and artful eye behind Zen Carpentry has graced Manhattan apartments, countryside houses, and the Sacred Space Community Altar at Occupy Wall Street with his creations. At Zen Carpentry, he specializes in crafting customized roofing, furniture, and installations for apartments and houses. Using woods such as birch, sycamore, cherry, and cedar—many of which are recycled—he crafts pieces that range from cabinets and bookshelves to lofted beds, planters, porches, and staircases.
The licensed contractors at Segelman Shaw Roofing, Siding & Gutters handle the fa?ade needs of all residential and commercial buildings. They fearlessly ascend ladders to inspect roofs for proper ventilation and signs of damage, such as busted shingles, defective drainage systems, or graffiti complaints from Santa about last year?s cookies. They inspect and repair rain gutters atop homes and condos, ensuring water drains correctly from the downspout and preventing clogs with gutter guards. Buildings receive a facelift with brand new aluminum, vinyl, and HardiePlank siding made of fireproof fiber cement, while energy-efficient windows and solar panels help decrease monthly electric bills. The Segelman crew also tackles entire exterior-renovation projects, from window wrapping to custom shutter and trim design.
