The dental associates of Park Avenue Dental Group take pride not only in the gleaming smiles brandished by their patients but also in exceeding the standards set for the dental industry. Distilled water replaces regular tap water, eliminating the chance of contamination. The office's sterilization systems meticulously scrub tools and surfaces free of harmful bacteria and surpass OSHA requirements. The practice also offers three types of sedation, including oral sedation in pill form and nitrous oxide, to help patients relax no matter if they're there for a basic cleaning, root canal, or grill bedazzling.
The dentists at MySmile Dental, who have up to three decades of experience help maintain the oral health of patients of all ages. The professionals delve into both general and cosmetic dentistry, and they harness modern technology such as clear Invisalign braces and Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments to leave grins that are charming even when directed at empty gas cans presented by the district attorney. While youngsters hoot and frolic in a supervised play area, the team fights signs of aging with Botox and Restylane dermal filler.
Supported by a friendly, bilingual staff, Dr. Diana Rodriguez specializes in all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry—from simple cleanings to dental-implant procedures—and keeps her skills current by attending continuing-education courses.

During appointments, Dr. Rodriguez pampers mouths with progressive technology, including digital x-rays, and accommodates sleepwalkers' quests for oral hygiene with evening hours.
Rain delays and snow-outs are never an issue within Hudson Baseball Center, where instructors lead baseball and softball lessons atop the indoor facility's evergreen turf. Working in individual practice lanes or in group clinics, players focus on improving distinct aspects of their game, including hitting, pitching, and fielding. Regardless of the specialty involved, every lesson places particular emphasis on critical thinking and physical discipline, valuable skills for both playing baseball and wrestling other jury members to settle an impasse. Comprised of former high school, collegiate, and professional athletes, the faculty includes the likes of a Class-A pitcher for the Reds, a high-school All-American with 14 years of coaching experience, and a softball player who spent 13 years with the Hoboken Shockers' traveling team.
CKO’s trainers boil their philosophy down to three words: Be, Do, Have. Those trainers all found their passion for pounding the stuffing out of heavy bags at the gym itself before rising through its ranks to teach there. The approach they fell in love with favors fitness training over combat, and pits students against the weightiest bags around to simulate a boxing match with a rhino.
Tourists and natives alike perch atop rental bikes from Blazing Saddles’ impressive fleet, pedaling down New York City's Greenway Bike Path and thoroughfares on adventures that combine exercise and sightseeing. Cyclists select from an array of comfort cruisers, 24-speed performance hybrids, and mountain bikes outfitted with the thick tread and front suspension necessary to support their riders and the mountain goats that often cling to them. Complimentary helmets and locks accompany each rental, along with detailed maps criss-crossed with routes for self-guided tours. Alternatively, three-hour guided tours of the Brooklyn Bridge area or Central Park give bikers a more structured touring experience.
The knotted wood floors, exposed brick, and cerulean walls at Go Row Training Studio set a rustic scene for one-hour rowing workouts that hold groups of 10. Rather than falling into a repetitive workout routine, exercise physiologist Garrett Roberts’s college-rowing-inspired workouts change up in order to keep torching calories and chiseling muscles. Sessions kick off with rowers perched atop the studio’s signature WaterRowers, which replicate the experience of open-water rowing by cawing like a seagull and picking at unguarded picnic lunches. Exercisers then orbit a weight-training circuit, lifting anywhere from 5- to 33-pound dumbbells. The class closes with students again mounting the rowers to further stump muscles and to rehearse a rescue mission to Gilligan’s Island. Garrett helms each class on Go Row’s schedule, and the 10-student attendance cap allows him to ensure each paddler performs with proper technique.
