Alternative after-school activities

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Ballet and baseball as after-school activities are so last year. These days we're talking about D.J. school, pop star school and how to be a video game programmer.

There is a music studio on Long Island where every kid has star potential. Former reality show contest winner Donnie Klang and longtime friend Mathew Laporte founded The Loft Studio. All kids are welcome. They've had real success like up-and-coming talent Madison Beer. Justin Johnes posted a song to YouTube and it has racked up nearly a half million hits.

If singing isn't for your child, then Dylan Pierce and the instructors at the Pixel Academy in Brooklyn have after-school space for kids and teens to learn digital technologies such as 3D print design and video game and app development.

And if your child ever wanted to learn to be a DJ, then Dubspot has a class for it.

    Lyft to start New York City service

    Friday, July 25 2014 4:06 PM EDT2014-07-25 20:06:49 GMT
    The on-demand ride-sharing app Lyft says it is starting limited service in New York City after reaching agreement with state and city officials to resolve regulatory issues. New York's attorney general and Department of Financial Services say the company agreed to operate "in full compliance" with existing laws and regulations, and that it will start its city service Friday night with commercial drivers only.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
