“We love partnerships! And we are proud to pair up with another New York City business like Flagship Brewery. It is the perfect pairing to enhance our sailing experiences as guests cruise the Manhattan harbor. We know people could use a nice cold craft beer on a historic sailing yacht while taking in the amazing views of the New York City skyline, especially after the past few crazy and stressful months of being cooped up!” says Tom Berton, CEO of Manhattan by Sail. 

“We can’t wait to partner again for another sailing season with Manhattan By Sail. After a busy few months of delivering beer all over Staten Island and New York City, we are proud to say that our “Unforgettable Beers From The Forgotten Borough” have definitely been making their rounds in New York.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
