The blaring of horns. Walks through Central Park. Catching a Broadway show. This is some of what comes to mind when one thinks of New York City. A place of motion, energy, and opportunity.

As IWC excitingly opens its first Flagship Boutique in Manhattan, we wanted to find out what was new and exciting in the city, and what better way to do that then ask New Yorkers themselves.
The new IWC flagship boutique in NYC
So we tapped a few key influencers in the city, to have them tell us what they love about where they live, what their favorite ‘secret’ escapes are, and what makes NYC come alive for them.
Before sharing a few of those videos and what our influencers had to say, I wanted to share what makes NYC special for me. You see, I share IWC news with you each week but am also a New Yorker (which makes me even more excited about the new IWC location!). Here are three things that are “My New York”:
1. Members Dining Room at the Met: It’s so great to eat an amazing meal inside such a venerable institution, and overlook Central Park. After the meal, you stroll through the empty museum on the way out. It feels like it’s all yours & is definitely a special experience.
2. Bar Centrale: Tucked away in the middle of the theatre district, this is a secret oasis frequented by the cast & crew, critics, and major fans of Broadway shows. Go here for a perfectly made Manhattan and hear the chatter about recent show openings.
3. The ability to be anyone you want to be in NYC: if you can imagine it, you can achieve it. You never know who you’ll meet or be introduced to.
Now, for a sample of what other citizens of the island had to say, check out these videos from Neil Blumenthal, Jeff Staple, and Josh Spear. Hopefully their point of view will inspire you to visit NYC, and of course to see the brand new IWC boutique while you’re here!
Jeff Staple: designer, creative agency, and retailer
Josh Spear: writer, editor, brand strategist, and more!
Stay tuned for more influencer videos and a lot of great news on the opening of the latest IWC flagship store.
