    COVER PROMOTIONJohn Varvatos designs are cus-tom-tailored for the worldly male traveler with a touch of rebel. The Bowery store is housed in former legendary rock club CBGB (with vintage vinyl records decorating the walls); the Spring Street store exudes a coolly chic SoHo vibe; and the Madison Avenue store is all Uptown elegance. And just wait until you see the apparel and accessories.

    The Essential New YorkIt was 80 years ago that Where magazine was launched, and to cel-ebrate this fact, each month in 2016, I will be picking a favorite NYC venue to spend 80 minutes in. This month, I chose three must-see exhibits from the American Museum of Natural History. Museums in this city run the gamut from quirky to palatialand, as you will note, several made the cut in our 20 Favorite Places in NYC story (starting on page 12). The Museum of Natural History, though, is in a class by itself, a world-renowned palace of marvels. Take a look.

    This 21,000-pound fiberglass blue whale is a model of an actual female whale found off the southern tip of South America in 1925. Suspended in the center of the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, this elegant, gigantic mam-mal appears to be in the middle of a deep dive.

    And, speaking of gigan-tic, the museums latest acquisition, the 70-ton, 122-foot-long cast of a titanosaur on the fourth floor, is a sight to behold, too long to completely fit inside the gallery. The discovery of this plant-eating dino-saur is so new that it has not even been formally

    named by the scien-tists who discovered its fossils in Argentine Patagonia. Finally, in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals (named after explorer Carl Akeley, who conceived of the hall in 1909), visitors are greeted by a massive, freestanding group of eight African elephants, surrounded by 28 vivid habitat dioramas depict-ing African wildlife.
