On June 13 New York City welcomed the launch of the new Maserati Quattroporte in a wonderfully evocative location: the Industria Superstudio between the Meatpacking District and the West Village.
In a vast space with a postindustrial atmosphere the new Maserati jewel hogged the stage with its elegant design, the power of its engine and the range of its Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound system: 15 high-performance speaker units with alluminium tweeter domes for perfect high-note definition and Rohacell at the heart of the woofer membranes for rock-solid bass throughout the cabin.
The evening was organized as a multimedia show party with interactive installations and a live performance of sound music. At the console were Howie B and DJ Tim Sweeny, the innovative host of the legendary NYC radio show Beats In Space. It was they who entertained guests with a DJ session that rotated round the two “Seven Notes" pieces created and arranged by Howie B himself by plucking the seven musical notes from the roar of the V8 Maserati engine. These pieces were the point of departure for the Seven Notes World Tour which, following a stage in Milan, will come to an end in London in the middle of July.
Follow the final stage of the tour in London on July 17, plus the special Tribute to Seven Notes in Milan on June 24 during Men’s Fashion Week.
There’s so many great sites and sounds in and around the Meatpacking area.. Art, music, contest, food and of course culture. If looking to just sun bath and people watch then the High Line is a great place to start.
Making good of what New York has to offer is the only way to really enjoy the summer! If your in the Meatpacking area and looking for a great burger I would suggest Bill’s Bar & Burger. It’s a quaint little spot on the corner of 9th and West 13th street. My favorite item to order is the shrimp burger. It’s got a great amount of shrimp sauce and flavor, and go’s great with a salad and the gravy fries!
