In Like a Lion
Our March issue is special—not only because March means that spring and all it promises is around the corner, but also because it’s our anniversary, as Gotham magazine launched in March 2001, with Liv Tyler as our cover star.
In this month’s terrific issue, Gotham’s editor in chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo introduces us to the cast of Broadway’s uplifting musical sensation Billy Elliot. Our spring fashion coverage is abundant: We look back at Donna Karan’s 20 years of influence and inspiration, while New Yorker Shoshanna Gruss shares some tips to get us ready for the season in our “Style Arbiter” column. In “Cracking the Code,” Joey Arak takes us to 11211 to find out why this Brooklyn neighborhood is the place to be! And we give you inspiring ideas in our local look at home design, décor, and lighting.
During the past eight years, we’ve celebrated all that makes this city unique. Through times of prosperity and challenge, New Yorkers remain devoted to our artistic, cultural, and philanthropic events, and there are some notable mentions for this month:
• The Young People’s Chorus of NYC presents its gala concert, “YPC Shaping Lives Through Music,” on March 11 at the Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center. For tickets and information, visit Ypc.org.
• On March 25, the Charmer Sunbelt Group produces the sixth annual Wine and Wishes wine auction and tasting at Pier 60 benefiting the Make a Wish Foundation. This is an event not to be missed. More than 50 wineries uncork hundreds of wines and pair them with delectable dishes by more than 15 of the city’s best chefs and restaurants. For tickets and information, call 212-957-WISH.
There’s something for everyone in this issue, and in this amazing city of ours, so enjoy!
