Arriving Wednesday, the 20th anniversary issue of Time Out New York highlights a dozen dynamic denizens who are putting their Millennial stamp on the city. The group has been collectively dubbed “The new New York.”
“Yes, brands like a celebrity or supermodel to give them clout, but if you want to sell a product and I Instagram it, you’re going to sell out,” she says of her curatorial prowess. She’s collaborated with Topshop and the Vintage Twin and earlier this year passed the 1 million follower mark on Instagram. Through it all, she exudes a casual sort of Soho chic that’s approachable but hard to replicate; while it may not have been her you saw stepping off the L train, it’s likely a gal who’s inspired by her.
Also anointed as “new” New Yorkers: 18-year-old photographer Humza Deas, 33-year-old writer Cat Marnell and 29-year-old mixologist Ivy Mix. For each profile, the highlighted individuals share their “Top 5 NYC Spots.” From the announcement:
“In honoring the past 20 years, we felt it was an opportunity to gaze ahead, in Time Out spirit, to recognize the next wave of star personalities of the city,” said Time Out New New York editor Carla Sosenko. “This group of New York artists and influencers represents everything New York – and Time Out New York – is about: They are shaping culture, pushing boundaries and enriching this amazing city we’re all lucky enough to call home.”
In 2012, Time Out New York proclaimed Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” to be the best NYC song. With this week’s September 23-29 free issue, they’ve essentially remixed that “hopeful and warm” anthem. Check out the full list here.
