18 NYers Spill Their Gratitude

If New Yorkers are one thing, it’s busy. Just ask them! That is, if you find the time to stop them in their bustling tracks. But, every year, some kind of hush falls over Gotham when the chill sets in. People settle, things get calm (or at least calmer), and the city starts to buzz with holiday cheer instead of to-do lists. Well, mostly. So, we tapped 18 NYC influencers for an aww-inducing look at what they're most grateful for this year. From the women who inspire them to the gadgets they can't live without. As for us? We're thankful for all of YOU. (Tears of joy, people, tears of joy.)
