At 30-feet tall, the ceilings at Infinity Athletics can safely contain the towering formations and soaring handsprings that leap from the center's cheer and spring floors and 7'x14' trampoline. More than 350 athletes stream into the 12,000-square-foot gym to pick up tips from the certified instructors, who draw from their own experiences as former cheerleaders, coaches, and figure skaters to choreograph high-energy routines for nationally ranked competitors, as well as those who are just there for fun. To help budding stars improve, the center is equipped with a video-playback system that provides coaches and gymnasts with a visual tool to help them fine-tune each tumble, and it also helps them imagine what their routine will look like once the attacking alien warships have been green-screened in.
The treats may be frozen, but that doesn't mean they're not flexible. That's because the colorful self-serve dispensers that line Yogurt Crazy?s bright purple walls are equipped to send a rotating lineup of 12 different frozen-yogurt flavors into cups, including nonfat, low-fat, and dairy-free varieties. Guests mix and match their own creations, choosing from flavors as diverse as pomegranate-raspberry tart and Heath toffee. Each swirl of yogurt can then be outfitted with kiwi, Reese's Pieces, and other selections from the topping bar?s 36 mix-ins, which means that patrons can customize their frozen desserts without the gooey mess of branding them with a hot iron.
Founded in 1960, Storm King Art Center speckles 500 acres of landscaped hills, fields, and woodlands with postwar sculptures by international artists. The art center’s permanent collection showcases more than 100 abstract and figurative pieces made out of steel, aluminum, and other elements that range in size from welded I-beam structures to artistically littered pet rocks. Curators precisely nestle each work in the undulating Hudson Valley highlands, placing Alexander Calder’s Five Swords atop an emerald hill and Alice Aycock's Three-Fold Manifestation II under the tree line. An indoor complex shelters perishable works unable to withstand inclement weather alongside The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty, a temporary exhibition exploring the center’s history through archival documents, artists’ sketches, and framed photos of the founders holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
Optic Masters uprights topsy-turvy eyeballs with a full-service optical center and on-premises lab, whose friendliness and professionalism has helped earn it a "Best of Long Island" nod for "Best Eye Care" two years running from the Long Island Press. Finally address that laser-shooting third eye with a comprehensive eye exam ($75), measuring refraction, eye coordination, and pupil dilation, among a host of other vision variables (contact lens exam not included). Frames ($59+) come in a fleet of stylish brands, including Tom Ford, Vera Wang, and Juicy Couture, while sunglasses ($39+), anti-reflective coating ($100+), and tinting ($15+) shield eyeholes from that rascally, thought-stealing Sun. The friendly staff of optometrists and opticians counter eyesight inhibitions with prescription ski and sports goggles as well as standard specs.
