LET­TER FROM THE ED­I­TOR- IN- CHIEF

Gotham - - Letter - Fol­low me on In­sta­gram and Twit­ter at @Sa­man­thayanks and @gotham­mag

With sum­mer on the hori­zon and warmer days fi­nally here, late spring is a time to get out and have some fun! For some, that means tak­ing in the Cos­tume In­sti­tute’s an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion (this year’s show about Rei Kawakubo looks pos­i­tively spell­bind­ing); for others, it means tak­ing in a game. And this sea­son, in true New York fash­ion, the play­ing field is gen­er­at­ing some real buzz. Cover star Noah Syn­der­gaard—aka Thor—has given such a spec­tac­u­lar burst of en­ergy to the Mets, and it’s not just be­cause his six-foot-six frame and blond locks bring Chris Hemsworth’s Mar­vel su­per­hero to mind. As one very im­por­tant part of the Mets’ star pitch­ing lineup, Syn­der­gaard is the pic­ture of calm, cool, and col­lected as he tells us all about his plans for Na­tional League dom­i­na­tion. (Also, look out for his Game of Thrones cameo!)

This is­sue is filled with end­less ways to truly en­joy our city this sea­son. New bou­tiques are pop­ping up ev­ery­where from the Up­per East Side (Edie Parker) to Soho (Veronica Beard) to Flat­iron (Want Apothe­cary). We ex­plore a resur­gence of ac­tiv­ity in Mepa, and bring you in­side some of the best fit­ness stu­dios in the city, in­clud­ing Rum­ble (be­cause box­ing is to­tally #trend­ing).

And when you need a break from the flurry of spring­time fun in the city, it’s time to dash off to the Hamp­tons. We close out the is­sue with a big, glo­ri­ous port­fo­lio of the hottest real es­tate on the East End and the bro­kers to know. En­joy spring in the city—and get ready for sum­mer in the Hamp­tons!
