“I can’t drive. I just got a permit,” says Natalie Albino as she is handed the keys to the new Ford Flex. Luckily, her sister Nicole—the other half of Nina Sky—is licensed. The identical twins are resident New Yorkers, and having been raised in Astoria, Queens, these 22-year-old humming birds know a thing or two about navigating the streets of the Rotten Apple, (even if one of them must do it from shotty). The two currently “share” a BMW 650 and Infiniti FX. “The FX we drive everywhere ’cause it’s like the family car. We roll with our friends when we’re trying to go out,” says Nicole. “But the stuntin’ car is the BMW. When you rolling out to the club and it’s just you and your homegirls, you definitely roll out in the 650.”
