This video is old, but I love it, It really makes me remember some feelings I had when visiting NY last year. And the song is great.

Urban luxury defined.

JJ's on 5th Avenue, NYC. The oldest and finest hat store in Manhattan. Knowledgeable staff. The best selection of Borsalinos. Old School New York at its finest.

Oxxford -- Chicago's bespoke clothier since 1916. They also have a Manhattan location. The best American (w/ a capital A) suits, according to Forbes and Robb Report.

Per Se -- Thomas Keller's renowned Manhattan establishment on Columbus Circle. Simply the best restaurant in NYC.

The kitchen of Grant Achatz's Alinea, Chicago -- the best restaurant in the United States (2010, 2011), and currently ranked #6 in the world.

Είμ’ ο Λαγίδης, βασιλεύς. Ο κάτοχος τελείως
(με την ισχύ μου και τον πλούτο μου) της ηδονής.
Ή Μακεδών, ή βάρβαρος δεν βρίσκεται κανείς
ίσος μου, ή να με πλησιάζει καν. Είναι γελοίος
ο Σελευκίδης με την αγοραία του τρυφή.
Aν όμως σεις άλλα ζητείτε, ιδού κι αυτά σαφή.
Η πόλις η διδάσκαλος, η πανελλήνια κορυφή,
εις κάθε λόγο, εις κάθε τέχνη η πιο σοφή.
