Whether it's sporting a heart symbol or a gratuitous "f*cking", NYC-themed gear tends to unwearable junk. For a classier showcasing of civic pride, grab a messenger bag from Insiders NY.
INY specializes in stamping iconic City images onto a wide range of accessories -- though the messenger (or wallet) is the way to go, assuming you don't carry a clutch or tote. The process: choose your bag's materials -- Italian leather, or Nylonian nylon -- then select an image, which INY'll transpose onto the flap using a heat-transfer process (producing goods far more durable than your Camaro! iron-on). There are 24 shots in all, including the 6 Train, a graffiti-strewn Canal St Station, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Library Lion, Coney Island, and the John Lennon memorial -- easy to Imagine slung over a decrepit hippie's shoulder after you've forgotten it on the 6 Train.
Order in significant bulk, and INY'll even create bags featuring your own photographic efforts -- a unique corporate gift, though expensive enough that your friends and family might just have to make do with f*cking hearts.
