  • Queens Botanical Garden
    The 39 acres of Queens Botanical Garden are a lush oasis amidst the city's expanses of asphalt and concrete. Inside its themed gardens, roses burst with colorful blooms, native grasses wave in the breeze, and a Fragrance Walk fills with floral aromas. Currently, the garden features more than 25 living exhibits that showcase native plant species, habitats ranging from woodlands to meadows, and even sustainable landscaping practices, such as methods for naturally controlling storm water runoff. Even the buildings embrace the concept of sustainability, featuring a rainwater collection roof, a geothermal and cooling system, green roof, recycled steel columns, energy-efficient windows, and furniture made from renewable bamboo. For a serene escape from city life, the botanical garden encourages visitors to walk along the trails and enjoy the displays, which shift depending on the season. This environment is meant to be touched as well as seen. Throughout the year they host events such as seasonal festivals along with educational programs that give school groups an opportunity to learn about the surrounding environment.

  • Ferrari Driving School
    The scream of skidding tires and the screech of a horn precede the copper taste of adrenaline in your mouth as pigeons and sparrows lift from the sidewalks. Did the sound scare them, or the sight of an onrushing auto? Domenico Pinto doubtless pondered this same question when he established the Ferrari Driving School in 1968. Originally founded to help dyed-in-the-wool and immigrant New Yorkers drive more safely, the school has now expanded to usher more than 6,000 students a year through motorcycle-, truck-, and commercial-driving instruction. No matter the vehicle, Pinto and his family specialize in helping drivers obtain personal licenses and commercial certifications, and learn defensive techniques that help them avoid fender benders or accidentally starting a demolition derby.

  • Front Toward Enemy
    Remaining open until at least 2 a.m. every single night?4 .a.m. on weekends?Front Toward Enemy provides patrons with a cozy nook for relaxing over a drink or a quick meal. The menu of refined pub fare features the likes of cheese and charcuterie boards, Black Angus burgers topped with bacon-onion marmalade, and beer-battered chicken with sweet chili glaze and wasabi mayo. To accompany its cuisine, Front Toward Enemy offers a variety of craft beers, wines, and artisanal cocktails. From the Press "Named after the instructions on an M18 Claymore mine, this military-inspired restaurant-bar is appropriately industrial, with a cement floor, steel-paneled walls and exposed lightbulbs." ? Time Out New York "We wanted to create the kind of place there might have been had Prohibition never been." ? Times Ledger "They use old fashioned soda siphons instead of a soda gun, and their drinks are cooled with ice cubes from specialty ice company Hundredweight, which sells crystal-clear chunks of ice specially cut for use in cocktails." ? DNAinfo "Usually a default appetizer for uninspired kitchens, octopus here gets simple, stellar treatment. It?s grilled so there?s just enough chew, and infused with tang from chorizo that shares the plate. Giant capers bring sharp accents." ? New York Daily News A Peek Inside Front Toward Enemy's intimately lit space also manages to balance its casual and refined influences. Damask-patterned wallpaper and a pair of wingback armchairs add an air of elegance, while distressed woodwork, chipped brick columns, and solitary Edison bulbs dangling from the ceiling lend the space a distinctly rustic character.

  • Twist and Smash'd Sports - Paint Night
    Unless you've been to Ecuador, you probably haven't seen Twist and Smash'd's signature dish, the twisted potato. The father-daughter team behind the eatery discovered the twisted potato at a tiny cafe in Ecuador and knew that Americans would love the treat—a cross between a potato chip and french fry that's crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and served on a stick. They brought the idea back here and opened their Twist and Smash'd franchise. Visitors to Long Island City's Twist and Smash'd Sports can enjoy the twisted potato plus the sports bar's three Bs: burgers, beer, and bocce. The burgers: Blue-cheese-topped buffalo chicken burgers, lump-crab-meat burgers, and a veggie burger with caramelized onions and mango salsa prove the chefs aren't afraid to experiment with a classic. The beers: The bar's extensive beer menu runs the gamut from pale ales and hard ciders to imported bottles of Quebecois La Fin Du Monde. The bocce: This is not just a sports bar in the sense that its TVs broadcast NFL games; there's a bocce court right on the premises. The game is refereed by the bartenders—their rule is final and they won't be swayed by promises that you'll wash all their socks for a month.
