"The renovation of the West Side is bananas. And this oasis feels as if you're on a beach smack dab in the middle of the city."

Billy Porter’s New York

Actor Billy Porter won acclaim -- and the 2013 Tony -- for his starring role in Kinky Boots on Broadway. Here he shares three of his favorite places to go in NYC.

What Do You Love About New York?

1. Mark Fisher Fitness: Because it’s the first time that anyone has ever been able to make me love to work out. And I’m SNATCHED because of it. It truly is some other level stuff!!!

2. The Christopher Street Pier: The renovation of the West Side is bananas. And this oasis feels as if you’re on a beach smack dab in the middle of the city. It’s also on the water so no matter how hot it is there’s always a breeze. And it’s still slightly undiscovered.

3. Behaviour: A boutique clothing store for men. They have two Chelsea locations. “Affordable” high-fashion garments for men. Exquisite. You find pieces here that no one else in NYC will be wearing.
