Originally open exclusively to designers, ArynRichards's wondrous 50,000 square-foot warehouse fills homes with furnishings from a slew of manufacturers, such as Century, Hooker, and Bradington Young. Designer lamps ($75–$150) enlighten areas with decorative flair and emissions of visible electromagnetic radiation, and ArynRichards's stock of oil paintings ($295–$1,200) and prints ($139+) covers naked walls with classical landscapes and artfully naked people. Special pieces such as a black-and-white crackled mosaic vase ($325) can provide an interior answer to a decorator's je ne sais quoi. Styles of furniture and accessories range from contemporary to traditional, accommodating interior furnishing wishes from all eras—modern, postmodern, and unmodern. Furniture bought off the floor can also be delivered the same day for an additional fee.

No matter the class, Twisters Gymnastics Center's instructors always make sure to pack their lessons with a hearty dose of encouragement. They inspire students of all ages and skill levels in a 6,200-square-foot gymnasium outfitted with an array of tumbling and gymnastics equipment, from balance beams and pommel horses to colorful tumbling obstacles and a foam pit. Their introductory Mommy & Me and Mini-Gym classes help kiddies build strength and develop muscle control, and their more advanced sessions, including competitive gymnastics, nurture students' desires to test their skills against others. Each child's safety is equally important as their physical development; every instructor is certified in basic first aid and CPR, is USGF-safety certified, and is proficient in scaring away grizzly bears with nothing but a glare.
Board-certified physician Dr. Joel Lamm has studied the human body at large, but he specializes in the body’s largest organ: the skin. He draws on dermatology training undertaken at Johns Hopkins Hospital—as well as his three decades of field experience—at his current practice, Dermatology Center of Long Island. There, he and his team finesse skin with an array of treatments, from Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, and other dermal fillers to laser hair removal. The center's photo-rejuvenation treatments combat sun damage, age spots, and other blemishes. To further combat aging, the staff uses chemical peels and microdermabrasion to slough away tough outer skin, revealing brighter complexions below the surface.
