ACD Play Space


ACD Play Space offers a wide variety of children's classes, birthday parties to help celebrate your child's special day, and Open Play hours where children can come in and explore new things. ACD's goal is to provide a safe and educational space for children to learn and grow through music, dance, and play most of all.

ACD, a family-owned business, opened in November 2017 after the owner—who has provided in-home child care in Astoria for over 10 years—noticed a lack of activities, classes, and play spaces for parents and children to enjoy on a daily basis.

ACD is proud to support moms and dads who are entrepreneurs in the children's  arts and activities fields. Since opening, ACD has joined up with many businesses based in Astoria and New York such as Allergic to Salad, Tiny Tunes, and the ballet and ballroom instructor from Petite Ballroom. ACD also works with programs such as Kids Music Together, The Pineapple Explorers Club, and Soccer Friends USA.


ACME Screening Room


ACME Screening Room is an independent movie theater with monthly kids' matinees often featuring "meet the directors/producers" sessions and local food discounts.

The ACME Screening Room is a non-profit founded by Friends of Lambertville Library in 2008 in partnership with the Lambertville Free Public Library and the City of Lambertville. They offer a weekly independent and documentary film series in the city's "Justice Center," formerly the ACME Supermarket. The series regularly features guest speakers (authors, directors, activists), post-film discussion programs, and/or exhibitions held in conjunction with a film. The programs bring the world of film to life for audience members and create a space to thoughtfully reflect on films by artists at all levels—from local filmmakers to nationally recognized professionals.

Acres Away, LLC


Acres Away's Summer Riding Program is being offered weekly from June until September. Children will ride twice daily in small groups or partners according to riding abilities. All riding and on-the-ground curriculum is built around each level of riding skills (if any) that a child may already have.

Campers are taught English and Western styles of riding as well as horse driving. Riding will take place in the ring, fields, and arenas. Students are taught how to steer and use their whole bodies while riding a horse—they don't ride around endlessly in a circle! Children will play games on horseback and ride patterns, obstacle courses, and more.

Safety is the number-one priority, and Acres Away has knowledgable instructors on site. The horses are safe and quiet teachers for children learning how to ride. Children will learn how to take care of horses from feeding to leading to bathing and everything else they need to know.
