Mustache And High Heels

New York is more than just a place, it is an idea. New York is taking the 2 Train to Canal to find the perfect sunglasses.

New York is showing up 15 minutes late to the show and fixing your hair right outside of the venue. It is a mustache in Williamsburg and high heels on the upper west side.

New York is sneaking into fashion week and greeting celebrities you only dreamt of meeting. It’s the underground warehouse party in Brooklyn you promised your mom you wouldn’t go to.

But most of all, New York is an opportunity that you cannot find anywhere else in the world.
