ManAboutWorld founder Ed Salvato on gay New York – cruising at the Christopher Street Pier and shopping at Barneys with his boyfriend.

I’ve lived here since January 1, 2003. I moved from LA for a job and with my man. Ive since switched both but Ive had a fantastic life in NYC.

I’ve stayed because I love this city and its energy matches mine! Besides LA, I’ve also lived in Paris and Boston and, while I love every place Ive lived, this is the right city for me.

My favorite queer bar has to be? I dont drink very much but when our readers asks about a welcoming, fun gay spot I sometimes send them to the leather bar, Eagle. Its super friendly and youll find people of all ages, but especially guys 40 and above.
