Reflecting on his life inspired by art, music, fashion and travel, Charnier Corey created Leisure Life NYC to provide creative business professionals aspirational living with an edge. I dropped by for the Ruse x Leisure Life NYC mural unveiling and t-shirt release jammy jam. The back yard was so cozy.
An inside, the store offers meticulously curated selection of vintage clothing and accessories, mixed with their in house brand. The physical space is a reflection of the products they sell; the room pulsating with a classic, intellectual feel. The vintage pieces and main label pieces have stories. The space has stories. Charnier has stories. Visit the shop to hear some.

Founded by Willie Jackson, Abernathy Magazine is an online publication where black men and some of their closest supporters discuss race and culture in a thoughtful way.
