Named for owner Paul Russo’s two dogs, Eddie and Finnegan, eddigan’s stocks upscale used furniture, antiques, and modern décor to fill empty rooms. Green thumbs can cultivate prize-winning couch potatoes on a modern leather recliner and matching ottoman ($125), while paranoid patrons can scour vintage paisley sofas and matching throw pillows for secret hieroglyphs and camouflaged CIA transmitters ($600). Decorate spaces by perusing eddigan’s supply of delicate glassware and pottery ($100–$500), still-life paintings, blown-glass bowls, and work by local artisans. A refuge for rescued cockatiels, eddigan’s is filled with the cheerful chatter of caged zebra finches, orange weavers, and society finches, which are all cloistered in an aviary, where they spend each night plotting new ways to take over Poughkeepsie.
Michael Buscanera’s passion for photography was born on the day he first picked up a camera. He shot pictures using inexpensive gear and was amazed at the quality of his images, even without fancy equipment. From that day on, he has refined his camera prowess, taking pictures of weddings and model shoots, as well as family portraits and travel pictures.
The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Black Label CrossFit. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.
