Improve Bad Posture and Your Exercise Lifts

Photo by Simon Gotz

Flexibility is what many of us lack. Many of us spend most of our time on a chair, whether your at work, eating your lunch or watching t.v.

Flexibility maybe of no concern to you right now, that is, but once you develop a nasty hunch, stretching will be part of your everyday life. Many of us (including myself) spend hours sitting (as a  matter of fact, your sitting

Great program, not so great anymore
If you think the workout program your own right now is going to produce results for the rest of your life, your in for a big surprise. Even if it's the best program, you will eventually plateau, and the "best" program will no longer be so great.

What Is A Rep?

Photo by pasukaru76


Structure Of A Rep
A repetition can be broken down into three components. The lifting phase, the lowering phase and whatever pause you take between lifting and lowering.

The Lifting Phase

The "lift" can also be called the concentric or the positive part of the rep. The purpose of the "lift" is to force your targeted muscles to contract.

The Lowering Phase

Golden Farm Has What You Need

The Brooklyn neighborhood of Kensington is an interesting mix of Russian, Polish, Jewish, Hispanic and other entities. Plus some health-nut yuppies. And the sprawling Golden Farm grocery is here to serve them all, as the enormous awning attests. Inside, the shelves are packed with an interesting array of  goods, including locally made blintzes (locally as in just down the street), various odd Polish meat products made at meat plants in Brooklyn and well beyond, an enormous selection of fruits and vegetables and about a hundred varieties of tea, few of which I recognized.

The Day I Started Lifting, and Why You Should Start

I remember the day I started lifting like it was yesterday. It was June 11, --two days before summer vacation-- and I was sitting in class, deciding on what I was gonna do over the summer break, making plans. By the end of the day I came with a conclusion, I was gonna get a job to support my family.

Later that day when I came home for school, my brother, Nelson, was already searching the web

A Good Sign: Columbia Florist

A family-owned florist on 231st Street in Riverdale, The Bronx, Columbia has been in the neighborhood for decades. The newer awning does nothing for me, but the older sign on top does.

City Island's Tony's Pier Restaurant Among Sandy's Victims

Among the victims of the Superstorm Sandy's wrath was Tony's Pier Restaurant, a local landmark in The Bronx's maritime City Island neighborhood.

Tony's sat at the very south end of City Island Avenue, facing directly out onto the sea. Damage from Sandy was perhaps inevitable, given its position. But Tony's wasn't felled by flooding, but by fire. Fifty-foot flames gutted and leveled the place, which was a favorite for lobster and seafood plates.

I cannot find out when Tony's was founded, but it is old enough. The current owners are the children of a man who used to work at Tony's in the 1950s and finally bought the place in 1981.

The owners hope to reopen in spring 2013.

Whither Rockaway's Tap & Grill?

The Tap & Grill was a holdout—maybe the only holdout remaining—from bygone Rockaway days, when the neighborhood was a Coney Island-like beach destination. I visited it for the first time in September 2011 for a "Who Goes There?" column. What with Hurricane Sandy hitting Rockaway pretty hard, I got to thinking about it. Did it survive?

Turns out, the business was sold before Sandy hit. Rockawayist reported that it was "sold to a Manhattan-based private real estate investment firm. Cayuga Capital, known for reviving near-failed residential projects in Williamsburg has acquired the mixed-use property. According to Cayuga's website, the 5,000 square feet of retail space will be converted to a bar and restaurant. A call to the New York State Liquor Authority confirmed that a liquor license for that location is pending in the name of Rockaway Restaurant Co. LLC, which lists Cayuga partner Jamie Wiseman as a principal. But more interestingly, the Cayuga website also indicates that 8 residential apartments in the building, totaling an additional 2,050 square feet, will be converted to Rockaway’s first boutique hotel since….ever?"

So, that's interesting. And depressing. The old clam bar, also known as "Boggie's," was so rangy and ramshackle. Utterly charming. Not bad chowder, either. The joint closed in August.

That makes seven "Who Goes There?" subjects that have closed, as well as one that's about to close, a few that have been temporarily shuttered by Sandy, and one that was just gutted by fire. This is not to mention places that closed—El Faro, Bill's Gay 90s—before I could feature them in the column. For anyone out there who's counting.

UPDATE: Make that eight. Stage Deli is to close next week.

Fallen Carroll Park Tree Finally Attended To

My, but I'm posting a lot about the fallen trees in Carroll Park. But maybe that's because they're still there, just where Hurricane Sandy left them nearly three weeks ago.

Finally, trucks and workman arrived today to begin the task of carving up the largest of the felled trees, the one that toppled inside the park, taking a chain-link fence with it. This is the tree that has caused the park to be closed since Sandy. Maybe now that it has been largely attended to, the park can be reopened. One hopes.

Edith Wharton Was Unhappy Here

I'm always tickled, as I walk down W. 25th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue, that St. Sava's Cathedral still stands. Not that I think of it as St. Sava's. I think of it as Trinity Chapel. Because that is the name of the Gramercy-area church where Edith Wharton, one of my favorite novelists, was (unhappily, as it turned out) married to Edward Robbins Wharton. (Wharton's mother lived across the street, where the wedding breakfast was held.) That betrothal happened in 1885, when the church, built by Richard Upjohn (Trinity Church downtown and Christ Church in Cobble Hill), was already 34 years old. Wharton mentioned the church in her great novel "The Age of Innocence."

There is no statue or plaque or bust in honor of Wharton inside or outside of the church. Instead we get this bust of Nikola Tesla, the inventor. Why? Because Tesla was Serbian. And this is now the St. Sava, a Serbian Cathedral, and has been since 1944. Yugoslavia’s King Peter II regularly attended mass here in the 1940s, shortly after he was exiled. (You won't find much about the church's history on the cathedral's website. However, you will learn a lot about Serbia's contentious history.)

The nearby Parish House was built by Jacob Wrey Mould. A famous figure in 19th-century New York, this is the only building designed by Mould that is still standing in the city. (He was the author of the famous/infamous Church of the Second Unitarian Church of Brooklyn—better known as the Church of the Holy Turtle, owing to its shape—which once stood where Cobble Hill Park now lies.) The Parish House is due to undergo a renovation soon.
