"Home to the Beanrunner Cafe and Kwan's Kung Fu Studio!"

I've come to Esther St. mainly for the Beanrunner Cafe, which has great food like paninis, homemade soups and smoothies, salads and more, and hosts Open Mics both for musicians and poets on the 2nd Mondays of every month at 6:30pm, as well as other Open Mics as well. (There's also exhibits of local artist's works on the walls, and sometimes the Cafe hosts artis's galas). I also come here to use the WiFi which is pretty darned good, and you can sit at either the tables or in the little back area, which is like walking into someone's living room and feeling right at home---there's even a couch, a loveseat, a TV and a chess board that's just waiting to be played! You can even used the TV yourself if you'd like, if there's not a lot of people around---perhaps a favorite show if it happens to be on, or watch the latest game! Oh, and the Beanrunner also has great desserts as well as fine beer and wine from all over the world. It's a wonderful place to come and dine with either family or friends or just by yourself, and there's even a patio in the back, weather permitting, which offers you some privacy from the crowd. (They have great iced coffee as well---I love mine with a dash of heavy cream and sugar!)

Also on Esther St. is Kwan's Kung Fu Studio. Kwan is a delightful man and respected veteran teacher, very experienced in the art of Kung Fu, which he has been teaching for years, since the early 1980's. He also offers classes in Cultural Art and Tai Chi. The Studio is very expansive and has plenty of space, so you can bet to see lots of little Kung Fu students having a ball, and learning a lot! This is an ancient art, very respected, and will teach your child the joys of learning an ancient Chinese practice. In fact, they will learn the Shaolin Fu-Jow Pai Tiger Claw, a method which is 2,000 years old! Fu-Jow Pai teaches self-confidence, self defense and concentration, just to name a few. Classes are on Mondays and Saturdays. Call (914)-737-1148 for details and get your child (or yourself) enrolled in one of these classes today! Fun for the entire family---and Kwan is a teacher that you will never forget!
