In May of 2014, Lyon Porter and Jersey Banks opened the Urban Cowboy Brooklyn. What started as a passion project became a much needed antidote to the mind-numbing pace of Manhattan. Soon their home became a staple of Brooklyn culture. A place where big ideas went to grow and life-long friends were made. “The Cowboy” evolved into a community of travelers and artists, coming from all over the world, responding to the rumors of such a magical place.
