Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
The coaches at Westchester Skating Academy have trained internationally competitive and Olympic-level skaters. But even if skaters are just starting out, these coaches still devote significant attention to teaching them how to glide across the ice with confidence—whether it's for fun or competition. In this NHL twin rink facility, hockey players also hone their skills with lessons as well as competitive leagues. While waiting for open skate to start, skaters munch on snacks at Center Ice Grill, which saves them the trouble of collecting shavings from the rink to make snow cones.
Right off 125th Street at Lenox Avenue, Chez Lucienne is Harlem’s place for classic French bistro food. The generous lunch prix fixe is popular with area office workers, while great hamburgers and a textbook croque madame sit among the generous a la carte options. A tidy Frenchman acts as maitre d’, standing in with a smile and offer to take your coat before pouring you a glass of wine at the zinc-topped bar. A weekend brunch menu comes complete with moules frites and other French-leaning savories, while Friday and Saturday dinner is half-price between midnight and 2 a.m. You’ll be there that late anyway, thanks to a rotation of live music.
