Backyard Sports engages young athletes in a series of weekly skill sessions, including baseball and basketball sport camps, taught by teachers, coaches, and varsity athletes. One-hour spring baseball sessions for pre-kindergarten through 2nd-graders, which take place on Sundays from May 8 to June 19, are tailored toward appropriate skill levels. Novices learn basic rules of the game, fundamental catching and throwing skills, and how to kick dust when arguing a call. More experienced athletes can hone fielding, hitting, speed and agility, and how to interpret an endorsement contract.
Washington Square Art Gallery's precision framers preserve diplomas, sports memorabilia, and prints with custom frames, acid-free backing boards, and UV-protective and plexiglas that prevents keepsakes from fading. Specializing in custom framing, picture professionals craft plastic, wood, metal, and stone squares that average around $200 a project, depending on size, materials, and framed objects' ticklishness. Replace novelty kitten posters with a diploma framed in wood ($150–$225), and including a double matte, dry mounting and plexiglas. In addition to fencing in renegade memories, Washington Square Art Gallery will happily restore wilted photographs to their former glory. The helpful staff also delivers and hangs wall decorations at no additional cost, and on-site parking provides visitors with a safe place to leave their car or saddled ostrich.

Writing a letter or eating a rotisserie chicken aren’t things you should do while driving. During trips to JFK, LaGuardia, Newark, or a range of other locations with drivers from Five Star Limo Car Service Inc., though, patrons don’t have to keep their eyes on the road. As the gleaming vehicles slip through traffic, passengers relax to prepare for stressful business meetings or hammock-modeling gigs.
Taking a safari, like using night-vision binoculars to watch raccoons separate paper and plastic, reveals how animals truly behave in nature. Immerse yourself in the wilds of Kenya with today's Getaway from Odyssey Safaris. Choose from the following options:Airfare is priced per person, but hotel stays are based on double occupancy, so single travelers should purchase the one-person option in order to get the full package. Click here to see the eight-day itinerary. Jets will depart New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and touch down in Nairobi, where Odyssey Safaris staff await to shuttle guests to the Nairobi Safari Park Hotel, tucked amid 50 acres of manicured gardens. Wayfarers can explore the Kenyan capital for the day or rest up on the hotel's antique four-poster beds. The next morning, the group journeys to the northern plains of Samburu National Reserve for two days in pursuit of elephants, beisa oryx, zebras, and giraffes, grazing against a stunning backdrop of Mount Kenya. After the sun dips below the Rift Valley horizon, tuckered travelers doze off within their luxe tents at Ashnil Samburu camp as the calls of distant animals carry through the night.The following day and a half is spent trekking through Lake Nakuru National Park, with a trip to the shores of the eponymous watering hole, aflutter with millions of pink flamingos on vacation from America's lawns and the occasional rhino trotting along the shore. The cozy, chalet-style rooms at the Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge ensure a good night's sleep, and sunrise on the private patios overlooking Lake Nakuru ushers in an adventure-filled day. The expedition culminates at the Masai Mara National Reserve, one of Kenya's premiere wildlife sanctuaries, punctuated by undulating hills and an abundance of fauna, including more than 53 bird-of-prey species. Elephants lumber about as gazelles dart spritely through the grasslands. Safari-goers may glimpse lions, leopards, and cheetahs stalking prey, or snap photos of hippos sparring in the Mara River. Come nightfall, the well-appointed tents at the Ashnil Mara camp beckon.
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.
