Cover Story

Sexy in the City

Who turns us on? Whether it’s men or women whose company we seek, we like some brains with our (Pilates-toned) bodies. Or some money. And some style.

Plus: We asked a panel of experts to give us the skinny on some typical New Yorkers—because in this town, competition is very sexy.
