  • Staten Island
    Since its beginnings in 1980, Staten Island Fencing Club has developed the skills of collegiate athletes and Olympic hopefuls under the guidance of head coach and founder Steve Khinoy, a Johns Hopkins PhD with more than 30 years of coaching experience. In 2010, the club—once relegated to college cafeterias and church basements—took up permanent residence at Staten Island Fencing Center, a full-time facility as bright and spacious as the Man in the Moon's front yard, complete with fencing strips, an armory, and a pro shop. There, Dr. Khinoy cultivates an atmosphere of camaraderie, teaching both novice and advanced swordsmen to master the Olympic and NCAA sport's triumvirate of blades: foils, sabers, and épées. Under President and Coach Susan Monardo, the center's focus has been to help both the recreational fencer and competitive fencer reach their goals. Beyond one-hour introductory lessons, regular courses stretch for several weeks, during which competitors learn the strategies and fancy footwork necessary to best opponents on the piste and during freestyle dance contests. Summertime day camps and clinics sharpen slashing technique with five hours of daily instruction that include warm-ups, basic drills, and individual lessons. The staff also hosts parties for birthdays or other celebrations, in which guests practice the art of dueling amid cake, refreshments, and bouquets of colorful balloons shrieking in terror.

  • Port Atlantic Yacht Club
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Port Atlantic Yacht Club facet_type_id: babe29f0-5f2b-1032-b9ff-237d8c36886c html_text: 'Though the chefs at Port Atlantic Yacht Club make everything that they can by hand—right down to the dressings and soups—they often have to rely on the sea. Thankfully, their waterfront view puts them in close proximity to the ingredients necessary for dishes such as seafood sausage, Chilean sea bass oreganata, and lobster ravioli. The rest of the menu is a mix of Italian pastas and entrees, from the lamb osso bucco and filet mignon to the Mulberry Street feast: bowtie noodles with chicken, sausage, shrimp, and broccoli rabe. Some plates, such as the chowder of the day, vary based on your timing and whether the chef''s muse is overbooked. Others are mainstays, like the chicken martini, which flavors chicken breast with olives, lemon, and vodka. The wine list features Californian and Italian wines as well as suggested pairings that draw out subtle flavor notes. '

  • FunTime America
    Twenty-eight armed soldiers swarm between two stories, ducking and weaving to avoid the sharp eyes of their opponents. Or so the story often unfolds during laser-tag sessions in FunTime America’s state-of-the-art laser-tag arena. Though it may be the most adrenaline-pumping portion of the family-friendly play place, it's but an introduction to the variety of attractions that unfolds before visitors. Guests helm bumper cars, take flight in helicopters, or race to scale the 20-foot climbing wall, whose foothold arrangements offer four difficulty levels from easy to easy for people with wings. Once playtime comes to a simmer, the video-game arcade really shines with its air-hockey tables and sit-down games that take imaginations on the road to their pixilated lands. After kids have tired themselves out, they can refuel at the USA Cafe with pizza, pretzels, and other fare to boost energy before another go around the center beckons.

  • Air Trampoline Sports - Cliffwood
    Inside Air Trampoline Sports, 18,000 square feet of trampolines stretch in every direction. But the facility isn't just a single, bouncy plane: in addition to frolicking on the elastic surfaces, guests can show off their gravity-defying skills on three basketball slam dunk lanes. The three dodgeball courts, meanwhile, host both casual games and tournaments, made even more epic by dodges that involve leaping over the ball. A high-dive platform, gymnastics performance track, and coming soon, a ninja obstacle course, add to the extra-springy fun. Sometimes. though, it's best to take a pause from all the jumping, whether it's at the onsite Rocket Fuel Cafe or the towering walking sticks. The latter attraction consists of tall, cushioned pillars, which visitors attempt to traverse while safely tethered to a belay device or an accompanying Spiderman.
