Instead of setting up shop inside a brick-and-mortar building, Classtivity stretches its fitness-bestowing reach throughout five cities, inviting people to burn calories, tone muscles, or find inner peace—all on their own schedule. Students simply search for the type of class they wish to take, such as yoga, cardio dance, or strength training, along with the time, price range, and location, before booking it online. With hundreds of activities and 20,000 available classes, the right class is always just around the corner. The company even includes classes in artistic pursuits such as guitar and painting. Classtivity’s CEO and founder Payal Kadakia sums up the business’s philosophy succinctly: “Because finding a class shouldn’t be harder than taking one.”
Housing Works provides advocacy, job training, healthcare and housing support for low-income and homeless people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Once the chopper lifts off from the Hook Pier Heliport and rises above New York Harbor, the Big Apple's sprawling metropolis fills passengers' sightlines. Rotors spinning, the copter flies past the Statue of Liberty and toward the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and other looming examples of urban architecture. During these tours, sightseers sit comfortably within one of the company's five Bell 407 helicopters, which boast giant windows and enough legroom to roundhouse kick roving bands of skydivers looking to freeload their way onto the aircraft. The helicopter pilots also charter their aircraft on trips to cities including Boston and Atlantic City.

At Central Park Medical Practice, Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova treats patients by engaging her two specialties: women’s medicine and aesthetics. Her gynecology and fertility treatments maintain reproductive health, and her beauty services enhance physiques. Microdermabrasion, for example, sloughs away the skin’s rough surface layer, exposing the more youthful hide beneath; laser hair removal’s long pulses of light noninvasively reduce stubble and destroy any miniature planets orbiting the head.
