New York, New York, it's a helluva mag. Even more important, it's got a helluva staff, too. So we realized: This week, while the 50 Most Beautiful New Yorkers cover is on the stands and the mag itself is tanned and rested after its midsummer week off, it couldn't be a better time to turn our Hottie sights on that grandaddy of the city rags.

That's right, folks, this week's Gawker Hotties installment will be the Most Beautiful New Yorkers competition, and it'll work like all the previous incarnations. Send us your nominations by noon Wednesday; we'll open balloting on Thursday, publish testimonials on Friday, and present the male and female winners Monday morning.

Remember that everyone at New York is eligible — business, editorial, art, production, publicity. So be sure to let us know if you've got a thing for anyone there, from Bruce "Sugar Daddy" Wasserstein, to teen-sex correspondent David Amsden (who, to be honest, thinks you're a little too old for him), to the city's most popular media publicist, blonde bombshell Serena Torrey. And, as always, orientation is irrelevant. It's about whom you'd like to shtup, for whatever perverted reasons of your own, not whether they'd want to be shtupped by you.

We'll probably do a smaller number of finalists again this week, to compensate for the relatively few people on staff at New York. So don't expect your favorite candidate will make it in without your help.

The nominations are open, so get to it:
