The latest from Gotham's Editor-in-Chief, Samantha Yanks.

From music to fashion, there are some fabulous new faces in town! New Yorkers are all about evolution, really. Jonathan Saunders has been handpicked by Diane von Furstenberg as the first-ever chief creative officer at her fashion label, Joe Jonas is touring a new album with his fab and fun band DNCE, and we go behind the scenes with both of them. Getting VIP access to deliver the inside scoop and a first look at who to know and where to be in New York is part of Gotham magazine’s DNA.
In this issue, we unveil our definitive guide to all things cool with a new section called The Source. It’s a destination at the back of the magazine for what New Yorkers want to know and need to know, from Tracy Anderson’s new uptown studio to legendary restaurant Union Square Cafe’s new digs. We’re also interviewing insiders about their favorite spots, and this issue’s Secret Sources include celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and jeweler-to-the-stars Jennifer Fisher.

Spring in New York allows us to shift ourselves back outdoors and celebrate new beginnings. There is no better place to celebrate the season’s freshest blooms than the cherry blossom festival at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We give you a sneak peek of the event plus five other stylish things to do this season. It’s impossible to embrace the start of spring without a fresh look at our wardrobes (think crisp whites, poppy prints, and pinks), our restaurant wish lists (it’s all about restos in hotels these days), and our playlists (check out Stanaj’s EP and, of course, DNCE’s new self-titled set).
