Actor Jamie Hector has made a career playing bad guys: drug lord Marlo Stanfield on The Wire, criminal Benjamin “Knox” Washington in Heroes, and villain Lincoln DeNeuf in Max Payne. The real-life Jamie, however, has a much different agenda. As one of the three founders of Moving Mountains, he draws New York’s inner-city youth off the streets and into the theater in order to steer them away from negative influences, such as bullying, gangs, violence, and substance abuse. He and his team of industry mentors cultivate an ensemble of young performers, musicians, and writers who create original plays and short films that delve deep into their age group’s social issues while spreading strong positive messages. In Moving Mountains’ film studio, mentors train budding directors, photographers, and technicians to create and promote short films and promotional artwork with the aid of industry-standard equipment. The mentors and their most senior students also tackle social problems at the source by traveling to city schools to educate audiences on topics including bullying, sexting, and how to make good choices in education and personal relationships.

The Range

After about a quarter of a century running its firearms store, the staff at RT Smoke N Gun Shop constructed an adjacent range, where indoor shooting lanes set targets via electronic runners.

The Rentals

RT Smoke N Gun Shop supplies rental firearms, and rifles.

At a Glance

RT Smoke N Gun Shop's staff members happily share everything they know about firearms?which could make for some long conversations, considering the family behind the store has been in the security and firearms industry for more than 40 years. Beyond weapon sales, the team leads classes, including the NRA Basic Pistol Safety course and a bow-hunting lesson that satisfies state requirements.

The Yoga Room is all about inclusivity. The studio hosts classes for beginners, intermediates, experts, and even expectant mothers. This fits nicely into the studio?s stated philosophy that "yoga is a personal practice, not a competitive or comparative one." Although they may not discriminate, the highly trained teachers sometimes show tough love as they push muscles to channel their inner origami. Aside from the full schedule of yoga, fitness, and dance classes, special events such as an Ayurveda workshop encourage students to stretch their minds as well as their bodies.

The Picture House's very first film flickered across the screen in 1921, and today, the recently restored nonprofit continues its legacy by showcasing a variety of new independent features, foreign films, and classic cinematic wonders. The theater projects hard-to-find flicks in both its 300-seat main house and intimate 20-seat screening room, eliciting laughter, kick-starting sorrow, and rekindling dreams of finding one's destiny during a battle with merpeople. To keep guests on the back edge of their seats, the owners frequently curate and host dedicated series that highlight family-friendly flicks, international pictures, and acclaimed documentaries.
