By the end of February, I notice my office is no longer shrouded in darkness by 4:30pm. Even an errant snowfall is short-lived and laughable. A mere three weeks later, daylight stretches well beyond 6 p.m. Forget Christmas in New York; this is absolutely the best time of the year, because early spring is the season of light, and with light comes hope. At this moment anything is possible. The Yankees and the Mets can make the post season. Any one of us can train and be ready for the New York Marathon. Shared summer houses still sound like an awesome idea.
As we shed our once cherished Canadian goose-feather parkas, give up the boots for sandals and consider the best haircut for spring, we emerge like bears from hibernation; hungry for adventure and ready to explore. And explore we will as we converge en masse onto the streets of New York and towards the Tri-State beaches, into the parks and onward to the sidewalk cafes. In short, this the season that we reclaim the outdoors.
And that is exactly why Outfront is the official medium of New York’s summer.
Think about it. Any journey you take from your front door or your office lobby to, well, anywhere, includes Outfront. Starting now, New Yorkers will be making more frequent (and more pleasant!) journeys.
Scenario One: A lingering snowy day in early March. Rush-hour morning commute to work. 6 train to Union Square.
Scenario Two: First 80 degree day in April. Lunchtime. Head for the food court in Times Square.
Scenario Three: Yankee Stadium in May. After work. Take the 4 train to 161st Street.
Scenario Four: Botanical gardens in June. Saturday from Westchester. Take Metro North to Botanical Gardens stop.
Scenario Five: Fire Island for July 4th. LIRR to Bay Shore station.
Outfront visually tells brand stories in places and ways that feel contextually relevant (read: right) to New Yorkers. Our media has always been woven into the fabric of the city, but the narrative Outfront helps brands tell now is more indelible because we capture the whole journey and are able to find the right point in time and location to make the story feel connected.
When you want to talk to New York, you’ve got to be Outfront. Really, it’s the only language we understand.
