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.

Beyond weapon sales, the team leads classes, including the NRA Basic Pistol Safety course and a bow-hunting lesson that satisfies state requirements.

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.
