Playboy Retro: Girls of the Big Apple

By Staff

<p>On this week's Retro we're featuring the savy, sexy and classic New York Playmates </p>

“Start spreading the news, I’m leavin’ today, I want to be a part of it New York, New York,” If you can make it there you can make it anywhere and this selection of New York City Playmates were able to make it to the top to shine in the Playboy centerfold. We’re all about the ladies from the city that never sleeps in this week’s Playboy Retro; it’s time to point the spotlight at the girls from the Big Apple.

Like the metropolis where she was born and raised, Sheralee Conners was an exhilarating and sophisticated woman who lit up Playboy with her turn as Miss July 1961. She was only 20 years old when she posed for Playboy, but she was already making her mark on NYC as a fashion model and dance instructor. Don’t know your way around the big city? Go ahead and let this New York native show you the sights.

{“pbembedwidget”:“gallery”,“id”:“16021”,“size”:“large”,“alignment”:“left”} New York’s largest borough, Queens, gifted us with April 1962’s Playmate of the Month, Roberta Lane. This personable lass is a joy to behold with her 34C-21-34 frame and joyful brunette charms. Roberta worked as a secretary for a lingerie company while crossing over the East River to audition for TV roles. Acting wasn’t her only passion: bagpipe music, dancing and horseback riding were few of her other interests. Although she was only five feet two inches tall, you’ll agree this babe packs plenty of sex appeal into every inch.

Like Roberta, Ellen Michaels, Miss March 1972, is another brunette beauty who grew up in Queens. In her Playmate of the Month interview she speaks of pining for a more sun-filled climate such as Miami…but New York turned out to be her city. She became one of New York’s top models, appearing everywhere from Pepsi ads to rock album covers before retiring to become a professional photographer. Ellen’s photography focuses on the nature found in Central Park, but we prefer the natural splendors of her centerfold shoot.

One of New York’s many nicknames is “The city of dreams.” Have all your dreams come to life with our New York Playmate gallery above.
