I grew up in LA and am a former talent agent—I worked at the William Morris agency for 11 years.
I was hired to sell a seven-room apartment in a beautiful pre-war building on Park Avenue. The seller was being induced to let it go by her ex-husband for financial reasons—and it was extremely emotional for her. She was older, and not in very good health. I approached the situation as if she was my mom. I treated her like family and brought flowers and presents—and hugs—and we embraced each other through the process. We were able to find a smaller apartment that she was able to afford and though it was quite a sad experience for her in the beginning, through mutual respect, trust, tenderness, and some tears, we got through it together.
I am learning archery!
Say YES. I rarely ever turn any opportunity down. “No” isn’t really in my lexicon.
I have a very soft spot for Lincoln Square. Every time I pass Lincoln Center I feel lucky to live here. The residential blocks are peaceful and tree-lined, and almost all of the residential architecture is pre-war—which I love the most.
Cafe Luxembourg, hands down. It’s my favorite indoors as well. Best lighting and crowd in town. And the best steak frites with Béarnaise, which is my son’s happy meal.
