At Lifestyles we are all work and play. Check out Ed Burke, Deputy Borough President, singing the praises of the beautiful Ocean Breeze Athletic Facility with Anthony DiFato. And look at all these happy people running, jumping and dancing freely at Staten Island’s premier fitness and competition center. A good time was had by all.

The Media Department traveled to CTV (Community Television) to record some segments for an upcoming show on keeping fit at Lifestyles. Here is an inside peek at the Mariners Harbor studio taken by Aaron Bialer.

“I wanted to capture what everyone is doing and how they enjoyed what they are doing,” said Aaron. “It’s a little tricky — the lights and the settings on the camera. But we go often, so I can keep trying.

“Tony (DeSimone, media staff) talked about how the more you do, you will improve. As long as you don’t give up, you will get it done,” concluded Aaron.

“The weather was so-so. But it’s fun to see Nature, go to the beach, and get some fresh air,” said Riki G.

“The geese were being annoying, so I said ‘Shut up geese,’ ” said Meredith A.

The Canada geese can be seen in the pond and along the shoreline.

“I found a seashell, and I  have sand in my shoes,” said Riki. “It feels weird.”

No deer were seen,  but footprints of a deer were, bringing us “one step closer to seeing a deer,” said one participant.

Offerings from the sea — driftwood and smooth stones — were placed at the grotto.

The landscape has only a touch of color, but after this warm weekend, we expect there will be a lot more buds opening on trees and flowers and with it a more colorful scene.
