Fall In Manhattan

The women are all back in Manhattan – including LuAnn who drives in from the Hamptons with daughter Victoria to attend some of her favorite fall events in the city. The two commiserate over Kelly’s decision to pose in Playboy while Victoria shares that some of her high school friends think LuAnn is a “MILF.” Kelly takes daughters Sea and Teddy out to casually drop the Playboy bomb on her girls. The two react uncomfortably as Teddy points out that the Playboy shoot is another opportunity for her mother to “show off her weirdness.” LuAnn kicks off Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week hosting an event at Ungaro that all the Housewives attend except Bethenny and Ramona. LuAnn and Jill are as bold as ever – taking the opportunity to pin Alex down and to get the dirt on what happened with Bethenny at Ramona’s Labor Day party. Jill and LuAnn make a snarky comment about Alex’s kids’ behavior over Labor Day and a slow boil begins within Alex. Kelly is on set for her Playboy shoot looking as hot as ever, while Jill and LuAnn attend the Jill Stuart Fashion. When Bethenny arrives, she and Jill face one another for the first time since their friendship fell apart.

The Sky’s the Limit: Passion and Property in Manhattan

The Sky’s the Limit: Passion and Property in Manhattan

Steven Gaines trains his sharp eye on rich people behaving badly. The arena is Manhattan luxury property and the outlandish displays of ego, outrageous behaviour, blood feuds, status hunger and conspicuous consumption that dominate that world. THE SKY’S THE LIMIT reveals the apartment-swapping adventures of many celebrities – from Jerry Seinfeld to Barbra Streisand, from Tommy Hilfiger to Gloria Vanderbilt – whose adventures in promiscuous apartment swapping and renovating are told with typical Gaines verve and style. And Gaines digs much deeper to tell us the fascinating story of how boxes stacked on boxes came to be seen as the ultimate in status for the rich. He explores the development of the cooperative apartment, originall

Manhattan shoebox apartment: a 78-square-foot mini studio

A couple years ago, Manhattan architect Luke Clark Tyler, lived in a 96 square foot apartment. Instead of upsizing with his latest move, he chose to squeeze himself and his belongings into even less space. Luke now lives in a 78 square foot shoebox studio. It’s too narrow to fit a bed lengthwise, but using a bit of plywood and 2x4s he built his own custom bed/couch. He keeps his clothes, plates, microwave, books, spices and shaving and cleaning supplies in a large built-in cabinet. The rest of his kitchen is a tiny refrigerator that helps hold up his desk (he works for home as a contract architect). While he admits he misses being able to cook a real meal- though he’s vegetarian so eats a lot of vegetables and nuts and can even microwave eggs- Luke doesn’t see living small as a sacrifice. He loves living in the heart of New York City- his place is in Midtown Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen- and he likes paying just 0/month (cheaper than the shared housing he could find in the area).
