Living with a New York State of mind. A review of The New York City of SL- Sunny Love Holiday Reporting



One could surely state that New York City, NY is the fashion mecca of America.  Ranging from the high end shopping, extraordinary fashion shows, and stylish apartment living, all fashionistas from different cultures tend to look towards New York City at some point during styling in their life. Thanks to the hard work of Joi Price, Owner and Dylani Sweetface Chiantelle, CEO of NYC and all the brands under it.
The New York City sim in Second Life™ is no different.  I recently had the pleasure of spending a day shopping and exploring the Sim and was pleasantly pleased with my experience. I left with the feeling that everyone should take a trip to this sim. I couldn’t wait to get home, open my laptop, and share with the readers of SLE as to why.

Since being established on 11/11/2011, The New York City sim in Second Life™ has evolved into one of SL’s hottest go to places for all of your styling needs. Even spilling into your real life due to Joi Price’s Brand, Angels x Astronauts, that releases new items both inworld and in real life simultaneously.  There has been many well-known brands that got their start on this popular sim, but the equally well known brands of Animaux formerly known as Bellballs, LoQ hair, K-Code Legal Insanity, and Maki Kato has pretty much been there since the beginning and hold down the fort to ensure shoppers have the best to choose from.

If that wasn’t enough, The New York City sim™ in Second Life’s staff also took over the very popular fashion site, Fashion Feed Of SL, which has been noted as being one of the largest and known fashion feeds in SL. Which I feel, and I am sure most othesr do too, that this take over goes hand and hand with proving to be the Fashion Capital of SL.

As my journey began down Fifth Ave, the first thing I noticed was the authentic metropolitan city lifestyle draped all around me.  One of my fondest RL memories is my shopping sprees in the big apple and  I couldn’t help but to be amazed at how real the shopping experience was as I walked from store to store. This sin truly lives up to the big city feel but conveniently has tour guides located to prevent that “lost” feeling one might have traveling in a large city.

I entered a store that recently joined the New York commercial side by then name of Finest Art Design. I was lucky enough to run into its owner, Trulove67 Resident, as he was setting up shop for his launch. He was kind enough to take a break from his busy work and express his feelings about his move to New York.

 “All  I can say is I love New York. “ He boasted. “Its beautiful place to live and the staff here is amazing!” After being a resident for some time and learning all the perks that the commercial units comes with, Trulove67 felt it was a perfect place to start his new business.

Shortly after my run in with this excited store owner, luck found me a second time by running in to the one and only Dylani Sweetface Chiantelle. After explaining my conversation with Turlove67, Dylani explained why she felt her commercial residents feel so much appreciation for the staff’s work.  “Not to brag but one thing I can say about our tenants. Everyone gets hands on treatment. When a store moves in we actually market them on all of our social media. We give them a grand opening event that we produce ourselves, and let them know they are not just money to us but a team” She explained.



The perks don’t stop at the commercial residents. Avies whom choose to live in one of the luxurious residential units are treated just as special. Each unit was custom built, so no one lives in the same style unit.



 Dylani further explained, “Every unit is furnished but I will actually get input from a resident and do the decor for their style and taste. I actually update the furniture when new releases come out. I try to make every unit feel like a home. Each unit has different decor so everybody can feel like they have their very own space. But we are also flexible. So when a resident wantd things removed so they can furnish their units, we accommodate.”


Excitement rushed over me when Dylani offered to show me around an available Brownstone and studio unit, two of the most popular residential rentals.  As soon as I stepped in the door I was taken aback by the city view out the New York loft style windows and the modern d├ęcor. I honestly can say there wasn’t much I would change or then the fact I would need a nursery for my beautiful zoobie baby. When asked if Zoobie babies was something they could accommodate, Dylani quickly responded saying “When someone contact us about moving in, I usually ask if they have a family or not. I’ve had residents with Zoobie babies and redid the units with a nursery and whatever they needed. Pets are also allowed limited to cats/dogs at a limited amount.”



If you have not visit The New York City sim in Second Life™ for a shopping spree yet, or is has been a while since you have been in the city, I highly recommend you plan a trip there during this spring/summer with your family and/or friends. There are many fun and exciting plans being made for the upcoming seasons. You do not want to miss out on it.  Perhaps you are looking for a new place to lay your head. I can say with all the things offered to you as a resident, there is no better place to do that then this Sim. Start thinking with that New York state of mind!

* STUDIO 777 JOINS THE EXCLUSIVE PI GAMES TOURNAMENT SYSTEM

NEW YORK AND SECOND LIFE -- October 27, 2014 — STUDIO 777™ (CAPEX: FUN), the #1 Skill Gaming Nightclub, Mall and Resort in the Second Life® virtual world since 2009, today announced that Linden Lab®, a division of Linden Research, Inc., has approved STUDIO 777 as an official Second Life Skill Gaming Program Operator ("SLSGO") and Sol Hermosa is an official Skill Gaming Region ("SGR"). In addition, the Company has joined the new Pi Games Tournament System and has added a Homestead simulator called STUDIO 777 which will be the home base for JOBSTAR Job Center, Ads-O-Matic Advertising and the STUDIO 777 Mall.

Linden Lab affirmed on October 27, 2014: "Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that your application to become an Operator through the Second Life Skill Gaming Program has been approved."

“This is an incredibly exciting time for STUDIO 777,” Luke Slingshot, CEO of STUDIO 777, commented. "We're grateful to Linden Lab for today's approval and continuing help and support, and to Stevan Lieberman, our Players, Team, Shareholders, Partners and Friends. In the four months since our IPO, in addition to expansion, the acquisition of Ads-O-Matic and our conversion to a Skill Gaming Region and Operator approval, we've also paid L$1,715,185 in dividends to our Shareholders. The Skill Gaming industry is one of the internet's fastest growing segments and with this announcement, STUDIO 777 continues forward as a leader in this dynamic area."

The U.S. Skill Based Gaming industry saw revenue of $2.5 billion in 2013 alone, and is projected to surpass $9.0 Billion in annual revenue by 2017, according to a national consumer study conducted by Frank N. Magid Associates. Skill Based Gaming is becoming so common and popular that Venture Capital firms are buying in: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/mgt-announces-exclusive-launch-skill-184500674.html

STUDIO 777 created an unprecedented partnership to create and submit Reasoned Legal Opinions ("RLOs") to Linden Lab. Included in the partnership are Raziel Foggarty, Creator of 4Play, Wizard, Stomp The Fox and R&A Core products http://www.racorescripts.com/ , Aargle Zymurgy, legendary Creator of Zyngo and scores of games http://www.azsgames.com/ and Ocean View Gamers https://www.facebook.com/OceanViewGamers . Together, with their attorney, Stevan Lieberman of Greenberg and Lieberman (www.aplegal.com , http://www.slcapex.com/forums/topic/FUN/9694 ), RLOs have been created and submitted for 10 sets of Second Life's most popular games.

In addition, STUDIO 777 is honored to announce it was the first partner accepted into the Pi Games Tournament System. Pi Games, known for many of the most popular games in Second Life, unveiled an unparalleled system including Reel Wild Progressive Tournament, Bugz Progressive Tournament, Pot-o-Gold Tournament, Fire Ball Tournament, Devil Hunt Tournament, Enchanted Tournament, Party Crasher Tournament, Doggie Style Tournament, Royal Gems Tournament and Ice Cream Tournament. The Tournament System will only be available on 10 regions in Second Life.

Pi Games CEO FoxyFurman Kumaki commented, "STUDIO 777 has been a great partner since nearly the inception of Pi Games in Second Life, and as we were developing the Pi Games Tournament System, Luke and his team were enthusiastic and professional about supporting and joining the project. We're delighted to have STUDIO 777 join us as we develop new games and continue offering some of the most successful games on the grid."

"We deeply respect and admire Fox and Pi Games, and congratulate Pi Games on Linden Lab's approval of the Tournament System," said KariAnne Starsmith, President of STUDIO 777. "Pi Games has created some of Second Life's most fun and popular Skill Games, and we're honored to be part of this historic system. To celebrate, we've donated to Fox Woods Animal Rescue, Inc http://foxwoodrehab.typepad.com and encourage everyone to support this great charity."

Several of STUDIO 777's initiatives, including JOBSTAR Job Center, the STUDIO 777 Mall, and ADS-O-MATIC http://www.ads-o-matic.com will soon move to their new homes on the new STUDIO 777 Homestead Sim. The Homestead, which will be STUDIO 777's new Landing Point, is not a Skill Gaming Region, thereby making the areas available to non payment verified avatars. Information and frequently asked questions about Skill Gaming Regions are at http://studio777s.com/skill-gaming-faq/

As previously noted by Linden Lab, “Second Life is the most successful user-created virtual world ever,” said Ebbe Altberg, Linden Lab CEO. “Eleven years after first opening, it continues to thrive with more than a petabyte of 3D content created by users, a strong economy of user-to-user transactions in which tens of millions of dollars are paid out to creators every year, and an active community that spans the globe. There is a massive opportunity ahead to carry on the spirit of Second Life while leveraging the significant technological advancements that have occurred since its creation, and no company is better positioned to create this than we are.”

Traveling in the Virtual World- Jessii Warrhol-Giano Reporting…





One of the great things about Second Life is that you can travel an visit many replicas of real life places and all from the comfort of your home! In fact you can plan entire vacations and holidays on your magical teleporting journeys. I took such a journey today and my first stop was New York City. 






While there are many sims which have a New York City theme, the one which I teleported in, featured the Upper West Side and SoHo districts of New York City.

Memorial Day in America and in Second Life - Lanai Jarrico Reporting...




Memorial day originated after the American civil war to honor the fallen union soldiers. Since the early 1900’s it has been observed on the last Monday of May in the United States. This is a day of honor and remembrance of all the courageous men and women that have since died in the United States Armed forces. It also marks the beginning of Summer and vacation season. Observers visit cemeteries to deliver flowers and flags, others celebrate with cookouts including fireworks and family reunions.
