TOWN Residential, New York’s leading luxury real estate services firm, announces the inaugural issue of My Town (, a first-of-its-kind lifestyle magazine that provides an insider’s view of New York City. TOWN Residential founder and CEO Andrew Heiberger, Brooklyn-born creative guru David Lipman, and the editorial team of The Daily Front Row collaborated in the creation of a new style of luxury magazine, the perfect expression of TOWN Residential’s best in class commitment.

"There is a unique chemistry in New York in which the accomplished and those who aspire to accomplish share our restaurants, parks, museums and neighborhoods. People are brave and bold - boundaries are challenged and bars are raised. The energy is magnetic," said Andrew Heiberger, founder and CEO of TOWN Residential and publisher of My Town. "I am humbled to be the publisher of the inaugural issue. Throughout the pages, with original coverage we celebrate the artistic expression, lifestyle, landscape and skyline that can only be found in New York."

“When Andrew originally came to me about TOWN, we discussed living in New York and TOWN being woven into the soul of the city. Buying a home in New York City is not just buying four walls, it is an investment in the city itself. As our conversations turned to the magazine, we knew that it could not be just another magazine – it had to convey the dream,” said Lipman. “My Town had to be original and had to communicate New York City yesterday, today and tomorrow. I called all of my friends to work with me – Sante, Sebastian, Laverne, Sean, Candice, and the next generation of greats – whether born here or from afar, we all live here. This project has been a true labor of love and I have put my heart into it.”

"The Daily Front Row's New York DNA has been a key ingredient in our publication's success as an original fashion media phenomenon. Needless to say we jumped at the opportunity to edit My Town, a unique luxury magazine that offers a striking vision of the city as fountain of inspiration for the brightest talent in art, photography, fashion, media, architecture, design, cuisine, and more," said Brandusa Niro, Editor in Chief of The Daily.

Beginning with the cover and feature story of international super-model Candice Swanepoel by legendary fashion photographer Sante D'Orazio, readers will enjoy nearly 200 pages of comprehensive editorial coverage and visually stunning images of people, trends and moments that define our town.

“Today's real estate representatives are taste makers and influencers. They are ambassadors of our town – we are introducing a much deserved professional change in perception of the role of the agent. To be among the visionaries and leaders of this shift and witness to the higher standards our agents stand for brings me true joy," said Heiberger.

My Town luxury lifestyle approach contributes to the understanding of the vast cultures and the neighborhoods with a level of introspection that will truly mold and shape tomorrow's neighborhoods and building designs.
