Our ‘I Love New York’ Series features artists in the country music community taking over our Instagram Story each week to give us the Top 5 Things they love most about New York City.
This week, singer-songwriter, Mitchell Tenpenny, who just released his latest single, “Broken Up” took over to give his Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below.
#5 – Flight Club, NYC
Tenpenny kicks off his Top 5 Picks with a big shoutout to Flight Club, the famed quintessential vintage sneaker store. Specifically mentioning and showing his favorite pair, The Jordan Grape 5’s, adding “Flight Club in NYC is one of my favorite places in the world for the sneaker game, you can’t really beat this shoe.”
#4 – Bloomingdale’s
Next up, Tenpenny includes Bloomingdale’s as his #4 pick while showing one of his favorite purchases right from his closet, “We don’t have a Bloomingdale’s in Nashville, but in New York they do and this is one of my favorite jackets,” he adds while pulling out a green and camo jacket.
#3 – Webster Hall, NYC
One of the city’s oldest event and performance venues, Webster Hall, takes Tenpenny’s # 3 spot. “Webster Hall was our very first sell-out EVER headlining New York City, and we got these Himalayan salt shot glasses, we put a lot of tequila in them. I’ll never forget that night, what a great night. Cheers!” Tenpenny adds while reflecting on the special show. Check out a full recap of the show along with an exclusive interview here.
Including his favorite restaurant in the # 2 spot, Tenpenny adds “Bobby Can’s Steakhouse” to his Top 5 Picks. “Best service, best steak… it’s just one of those places, when you land you have to go straight there,” he says.
#1 – Jersey Collecting — NY Giants Authentic Ron Dayne Jersey
Tenpenny’s #1 Pick for his Top 5 Things he loves about NYC in our ‘I Love New York’ Series is: his NY Giants Ron Dayne Jersey. Pulling the special item from his closet to hold up for the camera, Tenpenny says “I’m a huge jersey guy, I collect them all the time and on my very first trip to New York City, I got myself an authentic Ron Dayne jersey. That’s a throwback, baby! If you’re a true New York fan, you know what that is. Cheers, y’all!”
