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.

Vikram Chatwal

the dreamer

At the ripe age of 28, Vikram Chatwal created the independent hotel group consisting of nine luxury hotels in five cities: Vikram Chatwal Hotels. Chatwal is known for dating bombshells such as Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss, and is a fixture in New York City nightlife. His newest hotel, the Dream Downtown, embodies his signature urban-chic design with a heavy dose of nightlife. The recently opened Electric Room is frequented by everyone from Rachel Zoe to Mick Jagger.
