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.

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.

On a warm summer evening, candles on the patio tables in Maggie Spillanes rooftop garden illuminate guests toasting with mojitos and margaritas or steadily sipping Guinness and Maggie’s red ale—2 of the bar’s 16 beers on tap. Beside the drinks lay plates of American and Irish pub-food favorites, including eight types of sliders, corned beef, and lamb stew.

Downstairs, courtesy of the MLB package, 17 flat-screen televisions beam high-definition images of baseball players. Additional entertainment comes in the form of trivia and karaoke, as well as a DJ spinning contemporary tracks mixed with the occasional hyena cackle.
