The world has it wrong: The 5 million people who ride the New York subway each day aren’t rude. No, it’s just that impatience is a virtue in this town, we’re always moving, and each one of us is extremely… erm… passionate about the things we love. Here, a discussion over who makes the most pizza can spark more debate than a national election, and trying to have a reasonable conversation about which neighborhood is the most stylish, sexy, and fun? Fuggedaboutit!
Well, we’re going to answer that last question once and for all with our NYC's Most Stylish 'Hood Contest.. And how will we determine if the LES out-styles Soho, or if Nolita has more polish than W’burg? Well, that’s where you come in. Take a street-style photo of yourself representin’ how truly haute your ‘hood is and submit it to our contest page [link to contest page]. Then stick around, because it’s up to you, ye hustlers of the five boroughs, to vote on which photo and area in this ceaseless city is the chicest of all.
Of course, we couldn’t ask you to do all that without an incentive (NYC is the capital of capitalism, after all), so the contestant who supplies us with the best street-style shot representing their stomping grounds will flaunt their locale's fashion sense and tour us through their ‘hood as the star of their own R29 photo editorial. To keep them looking good out on the town, we’ll hook them up with $1,000 in Cole Haan goodies and a put a year’s worth of free NYC transit on their MetroCard — a prize no true New Yorker could resist.
Now, start snapping and submitting, because this is the ultimate style turfwar — and it’ll be over in a New York minute.
