Crimson hues edged in accents of neon orange and ice blue pervade the interior of Lava Lounge. Amid the low lights and bleeding colors, guests lounge on long benches and pull from long hookah hoses. Their exhalations send out swirls of smoke in flavors such as white peach, watermelon, or dominican mango. Between puffs, parties can sip bubbly Blue Moons and Stellas or make a night of it with bottle service. Bartenders also mix long island iced teas, cosmopolitans, and other cocktails behind a bar whose fuchsia lights transition into sky blue.

Tall grasses line the walls behind Lava Lounge's black couches, giving some of the smoking area a more pastoral feel. Patrons can also melt into one of Lava Lounge’s auto-massage chairs, pulling from a hookah while the chair kneads away muscle strains caused by relaxing too hard.

The staff at Nova New York knows people often have reasons not to go to the gym—whether it's a need for childcare or a dislike of most gyms' typical offerings—and hopes to eliminate them. Since the studio opened in the spring of 2013, it has become a place for the community to come work out and learn about health. Childcare is available onsite and certified instructors help students find inner balance through exercise classes, continuing education, and children's programming. When students aren't stretching in a Vinyasa fusion yoga class they can shimmy through a salsa dance session or conquer new challenges in a body toning and conditioning class. Boot camp and personal training round out the options for adults, and kids get their own yoga and Zumba classes.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's four-block-long building, located in Central Park, functions as a time capsule, preserving hundreds of thousands of paintings, sculptures, and artifacts that collectively demonstrate mankind's finest achievements. Founded in 1870 to bring fine art closer to the general public, the Museum has since become a means of exploring worldwide cultures through art.

With more than 400 galleries open to the public, seeing all the Museum has to offer is more of a lifetime achievement than an afternoon commitment. Paintings by preeminent artists such as Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh draw huge crowds, but unexpected treasures await those willing to dig deeper. One collection of galleries features the world?s most comprehensive collection of American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts. Another, equally compelling?and newly reopened?collection is devoted to intricate Islamic artwork from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. It's also impossible to overlook the galleries of Egyptian art and its approximately 26,000 artifacts, making it the largest collection of its kind outside Cairo.

The Cloisters Museum and Gardens

The Met?s collection is so expansive that it cannot fit entirely in its Fifth Avenue location. Travel to Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan, and you'll find the Museum's collection of reassembled cloisters, which opened to the public in 1938. These beautiful medieval structures currently house around 2,000 manuscripts, tapestries, and stained-glass artworks largely dating from the 12th century through the 15th century. Three of the cloisters even feature gardens planted in accordance with medieval tradition.

Ania Lesniak discovered yoga when she moved to New York City from her mountain village in Poland. Discovering the tranquil, centering poses of yoga—and soon, the brisk creativity of salsa and capoeira—taught Ania to use physical movement as a means to center herself and regain the calm and closeness to nature she left behind. These newfound passions led her to take over the preexisting Daya Yoga Studio and, with the help of a few passionate instructors, enrich the surrounding community with a variety of movement-based courses, including some taught in her native Polish tongue.

Today, the studio teems with activity. Instructors lead classes in a panoply of styles such as Vinyasa flow, which helps to strengthen muscles through movement from one pose to another in time with the class’s breathing. They also amp up heart rates with energetic Zumba classes and honor tradition by leading acrobatic capoeira, the Brazilian style of dance-fighting.

Carnivals aren't the only place you can lick a snow cone or sink your teeth into a cloud of cotton candy. Thanks to Carnival Parties, event hosts can rent these concessions and other classic amenities for any occasion. The company's carnival games, for example, range from a beanbag toss to Tip-A-Troll, and its team of performers includes magicians and clowns. Meanwhile, a rainbow-hued inflatable bounce castle ensconces tots in a cushy space where they can safely leap and play.

A restaurant, a rock-climbing wall, batting cages, and a custom embroidery shop are all housed in Artistic Stitch’s 30,000 square foot facility. At the cages, Probatter Simulators accelerate batters’ learning processes with sophisticated programming that allows for different types of pitches, aiming lobs in the strike zone, around it, or directly at the nearest Ming vase. A 20’ rock-climbing wall invites visitors to ascend to new heights, and soccer and doge ball games spark friendly competition. In addition to general recreational play, day-camp sessions and birthday party packages allow children to let loose and engage in energetic matches. Famished athletes can replenish their energy at the on-site restaurant, Saverio’s Bistro, which serves up piping-hot brick-oven pizzas, paninis, and pastas.
