The Most Influential New Yorkers of 2011

In New York, creating a “short list” of the most fascinating, powerful people

that make this city whirl and twirl is no easy feat. But once again we’ve done it—and narrowed down the names to a broad mix of personalities, many whose impact extends beyond the five boroughs. Some are mainstays, some are rising stars—whether they’re altering the skyline or a hemline—these people are the ones on top. Bottom line.

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have come a long way since their days on Full House. As owners of DualStar, a company that produces TV shows, movies, video games, magazines, etc., and with flourishing clothing lines (The Row, Elizabeth and James and Olsenboye), these 25-year-old billionaire twins are seemingly unstoppable. Recently, the stylish sisters have taken on the World Wide Web by designing and merchandising a line of chic T-shirts on StyleMint.com. On top of all that, the pair just announced they would be Creative Directors of Superaga North America, a footwear brand based out of Italy.
