The spirit of Russian Imperial Ballet–legend Olga Preobrajenska jetés over the New York Conservatory of Dance. Founder Vladimir Dokoudovsky—a Monaco-born dancer who worked extensively in Paris before arriving in New York—picked up Preobrajenska's philosophy of pure lines and elegant movements through close study with her at the École des Beaux-Arts. Though Dokoudovsky passed away in 1998, the conservatory is now overseen by his widow Patricia Heyes Dokoudovsky, who focuses especially on bringing classical ballet to adult beginners.

The Conservatory's studio is as stately as its lineage. Dark wood embraces its double-decker space beneath pendant lamps hanging from 28-foot ceilings, with a mezzanine for watching the dancers below and getting a look at the complicated system of pins and pulleys that hold each bun in place.:m]]

From its beginnings as a backpack-bound trove of purchasable treasures tended by its magician owner, Rogue Productions Magic & Funshop now satisfies wonder cravings with weekly variety shows and a gag-packed gift store. Up-and-coming performers and stage veterans descend upon the amusement emporium every Saturday night to brew a wholesome blend of magic, comedy, rhyme spinning, and dancing. Producers ship in a new batch of jesters each week from royal courts around the country, and intermissions keep the action going with prize raffles and auctions. Adults can opt to attend the monthly "Freaky Friday" show, which features grownup humor and fire eaters, among other death-defying acts. The Funshop's magic accessories range from gotcha gags such as fake lottery tickets ($2.50) that aren't activated by wishing really hard to eye-wideners that include a levitation-fabricating rising card deck ($29.99).

The Long Island Comedy Festival, which won a thumbs-up from Newsday in 2009, sends laughing fits rippling through southeastern New York with showcases of some of the area's most accomplished comedians. The namesake festival spreads out across Long Island every summer, landing at venues that might range from an old-fashioned playhouse to a family amusement park. Many alumni return to perform year after year, making for a festive atmosphere that executive producer Paul Anthony likens to "a comedy party that the audience members have been invited to," rather than one that they sadly listen to through the floorboards. During the rest of the year, the organizers stay busy producing comedy series at other historic venues and exporting their team of comics to college shows.

Opal Bar and Restaurant sates diners with a menu that features brunch all day, every day. When chefs aren't pouring creamy hollandaise sauce over poached eggs and plating them with home fries and mixed greens, they slather 10-ounce Angus burgers with sautéed onions or mushrooms. Dishes find their final resting place on long high-top tables and curved booths while guests chow down amid arched brick walls.

The front bar pours wine, single-malt scotches, and draft beers seven days a week, and the newly renovated back bar provides libations on the weekends while nightly drink specials and a DJ set the mood. In the lower lounge, retro-style decor backdrops private parties for birthdays, bachelorettes, charities, and businesses. While guests mingle, plasma televisions and two large projectors display sports games and shadow puppets.
