Presenting the internationally renowned, research-based music and movement program Music Together, Over the Moon invites parents and infant-to-kindergarten-aged children to sing, dance, listen, and explore musical instruments in a variety of fun-filled classes. During weekly 45-minute Music Together sessions, adult caregivers accompany budding music muses, delving into the power of music and creativity through a variety of experiential, non-performance-based exercises. The mixed-age classes focus on natural family-filled learning as younger children watch and imitate older kids and learn a 25-song course catalog. Pint-sized sound-seekers sing, practice rhythmic rhymes, and play instruments free from classroom formalities and engage in family-building creativity.

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 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.

In a converted brick electrical plant where machines once hummed and pumped power to the railroad, streams of craft brews flow into glass jugs branded with the Growlers Beer Bistro logo. The New York Times-praised gastropub has earned a spot among the 31 best bars in the county, according to Westchester Magazine, and boasts an ever-changing draft list that has featured Brooklyn Brewery reserves, Two Brothers’ Midwestern suds, and Smuttynose ales. Bartenders funnel the liquid gold into pints as well as half-gallon growlers for at-home enjoyment.

Growlers’ seasonal cuisine menu is designed to harmonize with the current selection of brews and features upscale pub fare, such as the Devils on Horseback—bacon-wrapped prunes stuffed with blue cheese and featured as Westchester Magazine's Dish of the Week. The hearty fare also includes a burger of beef, pork, and veal topped with a relish of bacon, onions, and pickles.

The building's industrial past shines through with accents of exposed brick and ceiling beams, complemented by decorative additions that include a polished concrete floor, a long communal table, and reclaimed barn wood that frame an illuminated wall. Along with their Tuesday–Friday "Hoppy Hour", the pub hosts regular events throughout the week, from Tuesday trivia nights to Friday ladies nights. Saturdays feature live music, while the kitchen cranks out its signature brunch dishes on Sundays. Brewery events are held every Thursday of every month while a Wednesday open-mic night rouses laughter-friendly crowds.
