Aboard the motor coach, Anderson Cooper sank lower in his seat, grinning and pulling his hat over his eyes as a friendly rapper called him out by name. But this rapper wasn't on-board the coach. Instead, he was spitting his rhymes from the sidewalk outside, performing for an audience on one of The Ride's interactive New York City tours. Though unique, Mr. Cooper's experience has been shared by hundreds of other famous personalities, tourists, and locals. Floor-to-ceiling windows cover the entire right side and roof of each of The Ride's custom built-motor coaches, breaking the fourth wall as they ensure that not only can passengers view the city, but the city can look back in. Due to their popularity, The Ride's tours have been chronicled by media outlets such as New York Live, Good Morning America, and The Today Show.

As each motor coach embarks on its tour through 4.2 miles of Midtown, guides encourage group participation with song, dance, and question-and-answer sessions, much like any good meeting with a tax accountant. With the aid of 40 plasma monitors displaying images and historical information, they also divulge facts about landmarks such as Central Park, 42nd Street, and Grand Central Station. As the bus travels alongside famous buildings and city sidewalks, passengers encounter a range of characters. Some are regular New Yorkers, but others are company performers in disguise. Rappers, dancers, singers, and actors leap from the crowd to entertain their mobile audiences with impromptu live routines, and sometimes pull audience members into the show. Surround-sound stereo, wireless microphones, and external speakers allow audiences to hear the performances from their seats, unlike pedestrians outside, who have to hop on a neighbor's shoulders to get a better view.

The Gowanus Print Lab is a community screen printing studio established in October of 2010 in the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn. Their goal is to create a nurturing artist community by providing exhibition space for emerging artists, affordable access to tools and a workspace, and education through design and screenprinting labs.

In the screenprinting labs, the teachers demonstrate how to make single- and multi-color prints before helping students customize T-shirts, totes, and even shoes with personal designs. Sometime they have group exhibitions and additional art classes. In the nearby Mac computer lab, they help students master complex software ranging from Photoshop to the sound-editing program Pro Tools.

Sometimes, the staff tailors their programs to youths with interactive summer workshops, or caters to a more adult crowd with monotype sessions featuring live models and beer. A week-long DIY wedding workshop even helps betrothed couples create all the paper goods for their big day. For the truly dedicated artist, they offer memberships with unlimited facilities access and private studio and individual equipment rentals.

From a stone mosaic that lined the floors of a 5th-century synagogue to the final rhyme spit out by a Jewish hip-hop artist, the span of the Jewish Museum's collections is as diverse as it is expansive. What began in 1904 with 26 artifacts has blossomed into a collection of 27,000 paintings, sculptures, and multimedia exhibits that together present a collage of art and Jewish culture from across centuries and continents.

The centerpiece of the Museum is Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey, a permanent exhibition teeming with artifacts, videos, and art that collectively celebrate Jewish identity and the culture's ability to persevere through sometimes tragic circumstances. Artists?from 20th century French master ?douard Vuillard to contemporary American painter Kehinde Wiley?enliven the galleries in rotating exhibitions.

Interactive exhibits such as the Archaeology Zone bring kids within earshot of ancient times as they don ancient costumes and weigh, magnify, and analyze vessels just like anthropologists or careful ancient housewares shoppers. Family activities include holiday-themed art classes and workshops, and The Wind Up series invites adults into the Museum for an after-hours menagerie of cutting-edge music, film, and theatre. After a day of soaking up history, attendees can nosh at Lox at Caf? Weissman, a certified-kosher caf? whose stained glass windows shed light on the edible portion of the Jewish journey.

Since 1861, the Buffalo Society of Natural Science has culled more than 700,000 specimens and artifacts from around the world. These treasures now reside in the Buffalo Museum of Science which opened its doors in 1929. The museum allows visitors to explore anthropology, paleontology, and zoology, with an emphasis on the Greater Niagara region.

Special exhibits inspire curiousity in guests by exploring the world around them through hands-on education. Nano, for example, explains the basics of nanoscience and the way it impacts our lives. Opened in March 2012, the Explore YOU health science studio teaches visitors about their own bodies as they study recent medical technologies that help keep the human race healthy. Our Marvelous Earth, on the other hand, focuses on geological phenomena, extreme weather, and alternative forms of energy via displays and interactive exhibits where guests will have a chance to experience tornado-force winds. The newest exhibit to explore is In Motion which motivates children to learn how things move by interacting with gravity machines, car races, and a fluid dynamics simulator. Elsewhere, Seymour (a 10-foot tall mastodon) and Stanley (a 16-foot long albertosaurus) give kids a glimpse of some really, really, really old bones. For a more relaxing experience, visitors can check out the National Geographic 3D Cinema presented by M&T Bank for rotating titles. During the next few years, the museum will continue to add new exhibits and improve others with interactive technologies.

The pottery experts at Bisque & Brush unlock artistic potential in three steps. First, they usher clients to a gallery of pottery pieces and suggest an item to paint. Second, they station clients at worktables with paintbrushes, stencils, sponges, and more than 100 colors. At this point, clients take over, adding colors and patterns until they're content with the design or have successfully plagiarized American Gothic. Finally, Bisque & Brush's pottery specialists coat the piece with a food-safe glaze and fire it in a kiln. Upon request, they can complete the entire process on your behalf, adding a design of choice to any of the available artifacts.
