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.


Trey Parker and Matt Stone

game changers


With their award-winning, animated show South Park on its 15th successful season, it should have been no surprise that Trey Parker and Matt Stone exceeded expectations with their Broadway debut of The Book of Mormon. Mormon proved yet another smash for the two creators and best friends when it won nine Tony Awards since it opened in March, and is now the hottest show on Broadway. Naturally, Stone and Parker plan to take their hit straight to the silver screen.
