Voted No. 2 Jeans Store by Long Island Press readers in 2009, Max & Gino's offers a stylish cornucopia of young women's garb, suitable for occasions both casual and dressy. Denim leggings and jeggings hold gams in a stylish embrace ($48+), and T-shirt-shaped textile chestplates from Chaser, Rebel Yell, Vintage Havana, and Wild Fox keep bare arms free for hatching goosebump colonies ($39.50+). Devotees of Free People can select from the full line ($40+), perhaps choosing a feminine, bohemian-rocker frock that billows romantically in the breeze of a freshly launched space shuttle. Max & Gino's also boasts Sugarlips tank tops ($16) and the entire Butter Super Soft line for women and girls ($39.50+), featuring luxurious sweatpants, tanks, tees, and a limited-edition collection of vintage-feel hoodies, each carefully distressed by hand using mildly upsetting finger puppets.
Founders Mary and Annette have spent the last two decades managing Safari Salon, where standard hair services meet special treatments designed for those with hair loss due to genetics, illness, and stress.

The salon also sends hair donations to Wigs For Kids and recycles hair for the American Cancer Society.

On each of the 18 holes at Jacob Riis Park Golf Course, players have three chances to pitch and putt their way to par. Splayed over the 26,000-acre Gateway National Park, holes are kept short—150 yards and less—so as to make accuracy the prime concern, as opposed to driver distance or leaping like Michael Jordan some 400 yards and dunking the golf ball. Since the course's establishment in 1935, this attribute as well as the wide-open format and generous bent-grass greens have made it an ideal place for beginners and rust-banishing veterans to hone short game skills.
From its surfside location in Rockaway Beach, Aloha NYC Surf School teaches students how to navigate the sea on surfboards. During private and group surfing lessons, instructors demonstrate basic warm-up techniques to get the muscles moving. Then, they show students how to balance on their boards in the water, paddle in search of a wave, and pop up to ride it back to the shore. The school also provides wetsuits, boards, and rash guards as part of every lesson.
