I want to change my job.” Jill realized what a risk this was, stating: “Let’s be honest, it’s not like I’m 20, 30, or even 40 years old at that point, it’s a risky thing to totally make a career change. But to me this wasn’t about career, this was a life change. It’s like oxygen for me.” Since then, Jill has been Today’s award-winning Animal Advocate, corralling her colleagues for the cause as well as inspiring people worldwide. And it is through Today that Jill has gained the platform for her cause; she raves: “I can’t believe I am blessed enough to be able to shine a light on these animals because it’s what I live for.” One of her most popular segments on the show, Bow To Wow, boasts a 100% success rate in terms of placing adopted cats and dogs into new homes. It is clear that rescuing animals makes Jill as happy as it makes them when she tells us: “Animals know they have been rescued. They thank you everyday for it. But, I always say that I’m the one who has been rescued.” Her colleagues at NBC are like a family supporting her mission; she in turn is overjoyed to have helped place adopted animals into their homes. In fact, she was instrumental in helping Al Roker and his

Line Animal Rescue. Jill showed up at the family’s home with the adorable black and white dog, Roker gushed about Jill at a Petco event supporting her new line Jill Rappaport’s Rescued Me Collection: “I’ve known Jill through The Today Show Jill is the ambassador for pet rescue. There is no question about it.” The undeniable bond that she feels for all animals drives her everyday. A mother once said to her: “I know you always refer to yourself as the mother to your pets, but it’s not the same as having children.” Jill responded: “I don’t have any biological children; to me, my animals are my children. I don’t know how else you would describe them. I love them, I care for them, I worry about them. I make sure they stay healthy and have the best lives in the world. Isn’t that what all mothers should do and could do?” And that’s what Jill’s new line at Petco is all about — Jill Rappaport’s Rescued Me Collection supports various charities such as the Humane Society of the United States and Tails of Hope, of which Jack is the Ambassadog of Hope for Animal Cancer. She gushes: “I’m so proud of the line because it’s born and made in the United States by Yellow Dog Design, which was very important to me. They tout mindful and

clever messages that support rescue and adoption.” We would be remiss to go without mention of Jill’s jewelry line, Hannah’s Heart, an equestrian collection crafted in memory of her beloved mare. Jill and the line support ASPCA. She designed it exclusively for London Jewelers. Her work has been recognized numerous times and she is the Good Will Equine Welfare Ambassador for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). She has received two Genesis Awards, the Oscars of the animal world, Voice for the Animals Award from HSUS. Mainly though, such recognition is purely a means for her to encourage others to reach out and help the animal community. She stresses the importance of the foster and volunteer programs: “Anything you can do to get into a shelter to donate your time is helpful—they desperately need it everywhere. I am very concerned that all the money we raise goes right back to them whether it’s for better cages, better food, better beds, better toys, care, or volunteers. If an animal is in a cage, which is terrifying enough, and it hasn’t been walked or cared for and given affection on a regular basis, it’s understandable that it’s not going to be waiting with wagging tail and hopeful eyes to get your attention. Regular loving human interaction is key to getting these animals out of these cages and adopted.”

And it is from her farm in the Hamptons, The Last Buck Ranch, that Jill tirelessly works on projects to further these causes — imbibing the natural inspiration dogs and seven horses. Jill started coming to the Hamptons in the 80s —staying in the classic share house with seven friends. When we ask her what it is about the Hamptons that she loves, she speaks of the proximity to nature: “You drive there’s the bay. Or, you can come to my ranch and feel like you’re in Utah or Montana with 60-foot pine trees. I have log cabins and horses –there’s a big horse community here. It’s really incredible. On any given day you’ll see a family of turkeys going across my lawn; there will be deer literally right up to my porch. And to think that we are two hours out of Manhattan — does it get any better than this?” Jill is truly a country girl at heart. It is inspiring to see her walk, talk and breathe her passion and purpose here on The Last Buck Ranch in the Hamptons. Jill is more than just a striking television correspondent, a best-selling author, or

Jill is a fan of the Southampton Animal Shelter and will be honored at its Fourth Annual Unconditional Love Dinner Dance Gala, the shelter’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The shelter focuses on caring for the homeless animals of twenty-two different towns and rescues dogs from “kill shelters” across the country. Jonathan McCann, Board President, raved about Jill and her efforts to help the shelter: “Jill has always been a proponent for animals so we are honoring her this year.” The shelter also has a program coming up with the Shinnecock Indian Nation—helping them spay and neuter their animal population.

By Hillary Latos Every year the Cannes Film Festival and the of passage for the international jet set; the festival serves as a transition from spring to summer and attracts Hollywood royalty and actual royalty alike, movie moguls and titans of industry, and playboys and aspiring starlets. They all converge in the South of France for a 10-day whirlwind glamourfest. Though the heavy rains literally put a damper on the festivities, even gusty storms couldn’t keep the glamour at bay. Opening the festival was the much-touted Great Gatsby that was kicked-off with an after-party that resembled a decadent club that Gatsby might actually have frequented. It was created under a tent at the end of a pier and beneath the steady drumbeat of thundering rain. Some of the best soirees the parties surrounding the festival. On Monday, Chopard threw an “In Love with

Cinema” bash that celebrated iconic kisses on the silver screen; it was held on the historic Art Deco luxury yacht, Savarona, which was once owned by Mustafa Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic. Set in the middle of the Mediterranean, guests such as Uma Thurman, Naomie Harris, Petra Nemcova, Selita Ebanks and Erin Heatherton enjoyed a bevy of entertainment including a high fashion jewelry show, dancers, a magician and dancing under the stars. That same night across the sea was billionaire Paul Allen’s exclusive and intimate soiree aboard the smaller of his super yachts: the 303-foot Tatoosh. Invitations to his legendary parties are always the most sought-after in Cannes— this year the theme was Black and White in the Great Blue. Celebrities who stopped by for a late supper and dance to Paul’s live band included Adrian Brody, Goldie Hawn, Zachary Quinto and Milla Jovavich. One of the highlights of the festival is Fawaz Grousi’s annual De Grisogono Seduction Dinner and

after-party—epitomizing what Cannes is all about with brimming glamour, supermodels, socialites and A-list celebs. Held at the Hotel du Cap in Eden Roc, this year DG’s aftermidnight party was so popular, guests who aren’t used to waiting were held at the gate for an hour after the reported start time of the party. Anxious to enter, they almost caused a stampede with their cavalcade of Louboutins and Blahniks. Once inside, after dancing to LMFAO and imbibing bottles upon bottles of champers, guests forgot about the near-death experience and danced the night away. After the party, select guests partied past sunrise at Leonardo DiCaprio’s after-after-party in Europe’s most expensive private property, the Villa Dilecta. After all of this partying, by day celebs retreated to the luxury lounges. This year GBK hosted a Hollywood Boudoir retreat at the exclusive Villa Madrid where guests were gifted with stays at the luxe Swarovski-owned

Sparkling Hill Resort in British Columbia, a Kindle for support of the Beat Liver Tumor organization, and jewelry and handcrafted gifts from the Artisan Group and Renee by Renee. Nathalie DuBois held her annual DPA luxury lounge at the Carlton Hotel that attracted A-listers in town who were generously gifted with Marchon’s designer sunglasses, red carpet insoles Cape Breton’s designer bags, Sal y Limon bracelets, a trip to the private island of Taha’a and Bora Bora in French Polynesia, and Bleu Lab reversible jeans as well as beauty products from Cowshed, Chateau Berger, Bio Effects, and Cil d’Or. On Thursday the party continued to Monaco for some pre-Grand Prix festivities. Playing host to the opening festivities was Sahara India Formula 1 team, who held his annual lavish Maharajah-themed bash aboard his mega-yacht: Indian Empress.

Among the 600 movers and shakers were F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone, McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh, Pirelli’s Paul Hembery, Prince Albert and Charlene, and various race car drivers who partied with the 600 guests into the wee hours of the night. Opening the Grand Prix is Amber Lounge’s highly anticipated 3-day extravaganza held at the Le Meridien Beach Plaza. To open the exclusive pop-up lounge, the worlds of fashion and sport united to support the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund that featured a fashion show by couturier Andrew Gn and also a men’s show with international sport stars of the F1 race

gracing the catwalk dressed in Pal Zileri. Following the show, celebrities and socialites mingled in the lounge to enjoy the Mumm Champagne reception and world-class DJ sets. Epitomizing the glamour and energy of Monaco, Amber Lounge was the destination on Saturday and Sunday night for the closing party—attracting some of the biggest stars including the Monaco Grand Prix F1 winner Nico Rosberg who celebrated his victory into the wee hours of the night.

Social media, internet/mobile marketing and instant communication have taken over, and are here to stay in a big way. Today’s successful real estate agents know a few important things about social media: That a diverse online presence is key to their overall marketing success; That social media is a portal to connect home buyers and sellers with the information they seek; That social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others offer a rich media experience, allowing potential clients to enjoy videos, articles, photos their own home; That social media is a conduit to a conversation, opening the door to deeper discussions that go beyond the limitations typical of traditional marketing; That social media is a powerful way to build trust, credibility and a strong personal brand.

Gone are the days of sitting by the phone or call or walk in. Prospects are now accessing long before picking up the phone or even emailing. That’s why giving them easy access to you and your business is essential. For instance, on Facebook pages, clickable applications allow visitors to connect with your website, blog and other valuable information. Additional sites like Foursquare, Yelp, Twitter and YouTube give mobile users instant access to you/your company while on the go. Speaking of the mobile revolution, you can’t deny the power of mobile marketing. In the last two years alone, mobile search has grown an astounding 500% with 30% of all U.S. adults accessing the internet via their tablet. These numbers, coupled with the fact that mobile internet searching continues to grow while desktop searching is declining at a rapid rate, make it imperative for real estate professionals to stay ahead of competition by ensuring potential clients are able to easily We began to buy into the whole social media concept a few years ago, but were in its effectiveness. These sites are a great way to engage clients, answer questions,

On our Facebook page, we take the time to create content that answers everything from lifestyle to home buying questions to boost awareness of our personal brand and build credibility as a Hamptons real estate leader. And it works. The other day we posted that we were at a certain location, and within a short period of time several people who saw it came there as well, and we struck up a conversation about real estate! Social media is yet another way for successful agents to provide local and neighborhood, community and cities they live in. What’s more, we’re making the most of social media and networking sites like LinkedIn and Google Plus to connect with other experts in the industry which is equally important to our business. Besides individual agents, Corcoran itself of social media by recently revamping its award-winning website, integrating the the site’s home search functionality on the brand’s “live who you are” tagline.

George Hirsch’s Inside Tips on Hosting a Fabulous Hamptons Party By George Hirsch

Summer in the Hamptons is all about outdoor entertaining. Hamptons Chef and TV Personality George Hirsch offers George Hirsch Lifestyle. First and foremost consider buffet style to take the pressure off serving courses, therefore allowing more time to enjoy your guests. Buffets can be a fun way to entertain and also span the levels of formality from casual to a very upscale celebration. The best parties’ most memorable outcomes have resulted from a more casual entertaining atmosphere, making buffet style entertaining my favorite way to organize a get-together. Tableware is essential to a successful party. Whether using disposables or traditional glassware, as a rule of thumb, have plenty of glasses, at least 3 times guest count without any being washed. Roll-Ups: Set up forks, spoons and knives rolled up into napkins. Make extra. Plate-Up according to your menu: Always provide one plate for hot prepared foods and another for cold dishes. Got umbrellas, canopies or a cabana? Provide shade for the bar & buffet food serving table and shade for guests. Cool beverages with an ice bath, ice mixed with water. It chills wine, beer and all container beverages faster than just ice. The ice maker is your friend: You’ll need about 1 pound or more of ice per person for drinks and chilling soft drinks, wine and beer. Include in your party plan the option of preparing some foods from home and buying some prepared foods from a local restaurant or specialty food market, which can alleviate party menu pressure for the busy home cook. The menu should include a complementary mix of meat, poultry, seafood, vegetable and salads for wide audience appeal. Themed menus are straightforward to get inspired by—simple done well, is my motto. Grill as much in advance of the party, so the grill chef gets to have some fun and enjoy the guests. Set up the bar one hour before guests arrive and close a couple of hours before guests leave. Time to close the bar is the perfect cue to put out desserts and coffee. Serve cookies and brownies. Make extra batches to send home with guests as a sweet token of your party.

What’s on the Menu? Your menu should include a mix of items for a wide audience appeal. A popular and relatively easy summer item on the grill is Kebabs.

hen people spend the weekend at my house in Rhinebeck, they always come down the stairs on Sunday morning – usually around noon – and remark, “I haven’t slept like that in years.”

There’s something about the oxygen in the Hudson Valley that does that to you. Sleep is heavy, the way it used to be when you were a child – dreamless. You are drugged by the rich purity of the air and wake up feeling fully refreshed. Think of Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle who falls asleep for on the American Revolution. That’s the way it feels when you are in Rhinebeck. Worldly events fall away. The Hudson River school painters got it right: sunlight falls in a golden shimmer like a scene painted by Thomas Cole. Or sometimes a light haze river, reminiscent of the misty, dreamy landscapes of Asher Durand. Over the mountains you can see the mysticism of Frederick Church in the sunset “Heart of the Andes” hangs in his home in nearby Hudson New York). The glory of what can only be described as otherworldly peace.

I have been coming to Rhinebeck all my life. My family, descended from Dutch settlers, arrived in this area in the mid 1600’s. So it was no surprise, after roaming the world as a journalist for several decades, that I decided to call this home base. I can attest that not much has changed here in thirty years. Rhinebeck remains unspoiled, which cannot be said of other popular resorts within two-hour driving distance of the city. The village of Rhinebeck is quaint, yet sophisticated. Manhattanites pass through and keep the village on its toes in terms of style. The Upstate Film Theater in the center of town always the Angelica in Manhattan. The local restaurants are top notch, from the glorious colonial-era tavern of the Beekman Arms, to the breezy casual feel of Terapin, or Gigi’s on Montgomery Street. Local chefs often are recruited from the nearby Culinary Institute of America, and even the local grilled cheese sandwiches.

Rhinebeck is a perfect shopping town. An afternoon stroll takes you from one end of the main street to the other, with plenty of time to browse all the antique shops and boutiques in between.

If

you are the astute jetrosexual on the prowl for a supermodel binge, have we got the destination point for you! It turns out that this is one of the best kept secrets of St. Barthelemy - that 25 square kilometers of rugged terrain in the French West Indies which the glamour set have been haunting for years. Well, it turns out that there is one chic resort property where, on any given week on any given month, not only in high season from November to May, you are more likely than not to check into a villa or bungalow at Le Serneno only to catch sight of a willowy beauty such as Doutzen Kroes or Alessandra Abrosio checking in right behind you. For Le Sereno is the St. Barths home away from home for the contingent of Victoria’s Secrets supermodels and the accompanying photographers, make-up artists, wardrobe stylists and other assorted hangers-on when they are on location in beautiful St. Barths, which is all the time. On any given day of the week you can turn to page 3 of the New York Post only to see a supermodel cavorting in a next-to-nothing string bikini, say on Shell Beach in St. Barths, snapped from a discreet lens in the bushes off the famous St. Barths beach. There is no denying that these various and multiple continuous Victoria’s Secret photo shoots have become a thriving cottage industry for the local ‘’paps’’ (paparazzi) who sell these bootleg images all over the globe, but it seemingly makes a four day stay at Le Sereno all the more worth it. For this is where they eat, sleep, spa and rest their pretty heads when they hit the sack. Yes, it is always here by the picturesque, windswept Grand Cul-de-Sac property

A Revolutionary Tour of Central Virginia: The Homes of Jefferson and Monroe and the Home Battle Field By Demetra M. Pappas July 4th invites educational travel for adults as well as families. While my idea of educational travel started with graduate school, a road trip (or easy Amtrak journey) provides for both. This Central Virginia Presidential Home and “Home Battle Field” plan of battle suits either way. Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville is a superb place to start; as Jefferson built and rebuilt the house and garden for over 40 years, it appealed to the academic in me. There is a day in the life tour, and it is a treat

to have Jefferson’s inventions pointed out en route. For a pre/post tour of a different sort, lunch nearby at Michie Tavern and learn that reading (or even walking along the path of history are not self-limiting) and for homework, get A Taste of the 18th Century (Michie Tavern ca. 1784). Jefferson’s postpresidential retreat at Poplar Forest in Bedford is a smaller, more intimate experience (where I recently attended an erudite and politically humorous conversational debate between Jefferson and Benedict Arnold).

The University of Virginia, founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, has contemporary cultural learning opportunities, as well as Jeffersonian architectural genius. The Small Collections Library is a true treasure trove, with small exhibits and a view of open stacks of rare books behind gleaming glass – access without risk. The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia has rotating innovative exhibits. For theatrical goings on, the UVA theaters (Ruth Caplin, Culbreth and Helms) are running a Heritage Theater Festival over the summer.

Move onto Jefferson’s protégée, James president, by visiting his home, Ash LawnHighland in Charlottesville. A curious fact is that Monroe died in NYC on July 4, 1831. More importantly, he held more U.S. Senator, Minister to France, England and Spain, Governor of Virginia, Secretary experience indeed. The area is rich in sesquicentennial Civil War history.

I was moved to notice that there were visitors (who are very much alive and strolling on a beautiful day) at the gardens. In addition, the Old City Cemetery has museums (and now has a 2013 cookbook, Food to Live For to match the 2004 Food to Die For: A Book of Funeral Food, Tips and Tales). be inspired to do further reading, such as the popular general and academic interest book, Prototype of a Confederate Hospital Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, which I read after a fascinating conversation over dinner at Lynchburg’s Main Street eatery with author

In a city desperate for more open spaces, nature loving New Warburg Realty Lsemino@warburgrealty.com Yorkers are thankful to have this beautiful urban garden in their community and proud that a structure slated to be torn down is now an exemplary park. The High Line is changing a once decrepit structure and old neighborhood into a brand-spanking new park and vibrant community. Since 1980, the elevated freight tracks of the High Line sat unused and were scheduled to be demolished. Luckily, in 1999, residents Joshua David and Robert Hammond formed Friends of the High Line to save the historic structure.

Although the High Line is West Chelsea’s precious gemstone, the neighborhood is also becoming known for its new, posh private school, Avenues: The World School, where Suri Holmes is currently a student.

Shohreh Aghdashloo’s

Road to Success By Christopher A. Pape & Anna Ryan

With a voice reminiscent of Kathleen Turner and as beautiful as a Persian queen, Shohreh Aghdashloo has roared onto the Hollywood would be wrong. It was only through hard work and perseverance that she honed her one of the most beloved actresses on screen today. We sat down with her at a neighborhood café to discuss her new book, which details her life’s journey from her homeland through England to Los Angeles, her Academy Award nomination for House of Sand and Fog

that had nothing to do with my life at home, with my parents, which was beautiful, but not as meaningful as I wanted it to be.” The day came when he proposed to her, and she saw it as a sign to really pursue her acting career. Her opportunity came when her husband told her about an audition for the role of a British queen for The Narrow Road to the Deep North. Upon completing her audition, she was of the workshop told her, “Congratulations little girl, you won the contest for playing the role.” This was the impetus for becoming a successful actress in Iran.

Shohreh’s graciousness. This was on display when our waitress at the café recognized and lavished attention on her. Rather than demur or be annoyed (as many Hollywood actors are wont to do) Shohreh basked in the attention: “It’s my reward when people recognize me in public. If people recognize me it means that they have connected with my character. It means that I’ve been convincing. They like us (actors) so if they approach us, it means that they want to tell us how much they love our work. And as actors, we should be appreciative instead of being rude to them.”

Shohreh was torn, but her desire for acting grew when she met a man who taught her all there was to know about live cinema. “For cinema is all about metaphors and symbols.” This became a whole new world, “a world

After graduation, a playwright friend of hers called her and said he had written a play with a lead role in it for her. She read it and immediately fell in love. “It was a political play,” she said. “It dawned on me that I don’t have to change my profession. I can still be an actress.” The play was put on stage for sold out. Once the United States heard about the play, they wanted to bring it to Los Angeles. When a riot broke out to see the play, she decided she wanted to live here, a place where people would break down the door to see her perform.

language.

Her love for people is evident and translated into her desire to be an actress. “I wanted to become an actress since I was seven years old.” Yet, her parents did not support her love of acting. They wanted her to go to Germany to become a doctor. That was the plan for her and her three brothers. “It was very popular to send your kids to England or Germany to become doctors,” she said.

the border, where “we were all claiming we were going to Turkey for vacation.” When she made it to London, she heard Margaret Thatcher give a speech which made her want to pursue politics instead of acting. “So I studied politics. I studied international relations. I committed myself to this for four years,” she stated.

Living in the United States proved to shower Shohreh and her second husband with new believing that there was no place for us in Hollywood; we’d have to create our own work. We’re both artists, and we could create from scratch - so we did,” Shohreh said. Her House of Sand and Fog, developed her English-speaking acting career in the United States. She was eventually nominated for an Oscar. Since then, she has X-Men, The Lake House, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the TV series 24.

a new chapter in Shohreh’s life. She was faced with the dangers of living in Iran and the Prime Minister at the time had ordered all the airports to shut down. I thought this is it, they’re going to shut down all the airports and then they’re going to shut down all the borders until no one can leave, so it’s better if I drive out while the borders are still

Every day Shohreh is reminded of how blessed she is to be where she is now. It’s our favorite lines from the interview shows this bright light of her compassion: “It’s only in comparison that life becomes meaningful. When you see a hobo you see how lucky you are to have a shelter. When you see a sad face then you realize how fundamental it is to wear a smile. And all the time I make an effort to smile at people.” Her hard work and dedication have truly paid off, and the world

s a comfortably middle-class Baby Boomer with a passion for fashion, I do have to exercise some frugality. Fortunately, this comes naturally to me since I was raised by parents who were children of the Depression and passed on their values to me. This column is a continuing commentary on my efforts to justify fashion and frugality. I’m very ingenious, wearing things in a way that they were really not intended. For instance, I have a rather expensive sarong-type black wool skirt by Donna Karan. I’ve had it for years, but it was a mistake. I never should have bought it. Every time I wore it, the big knot in the front made me look fat even though I’m actually very slim. But as I say, it was expensive, so the thought of throwing it out bothered me. Finally, I put it in a pile to give to charity. But before I gave it away, I suddenly had an “aha” moment. Why not wear it as a shawl? I now have a beautiful, luxurious black wool shawl and no one would ever suspect it’s really a skirt. It has no zipper, buttons or closure and is very wide. Remember when half-slips and petticoats were part of every woman’s wardrobe? Well, I unearthed a beautiful black taffeta one with embroidery on the hem. It was buried in the back of a drawer, and I forgot I had it. Into the pile marked for charity it went. And then another “aha” moment. Why not wear it as a skirt? Why not, indeed. I wear it in the summer with a tee shirt over it, belted loosely at the

By Phil Chan Produced By Joe Alexander New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Sara Mearns joined the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall, to perform “A Dancers Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky.” The avant-garde work blended music with ballet, live animation, video, puppetry, and circus arts. Born in South Carolina, Mearns began training at age three and by thirteen she was being coached by former NY City Ballet prima ballerina Patricia McBride who danced under George Balanchine. An early test for her as a young dancer came was when she competed at Youth America Grand Prix, the world’s largest student ballet scholarship competition. “It was very challenging. I didn’t realize the competition would be so good. It encouraged me to up my game and to see what other young talent was out there. It gave me a different mental state and the drive to get to NY. I knew that I wasn’t going to be like those other girls; I needed to work harder.” yagp.org. It was through these trials that the as the driving force in her dancing. “When I was studying with Patty McBride, that’s when it really sunk in that the School of American Ballet and the Balanchine style is what I wanted to do. When she would teach us variations in class, there was a certain sense of musicality. You felt free. You felt happier. It feels good on the body. You don’t feel like you’re struggling or you’re not going to make it; I’m just going out and dancing.”

In continuing to push her boundaries Sara signed onto “A Dancers Dream” in collaboration with the Phil’s Music Director Alan Gilbert, Director Doug Fitch and Producer Edouard Getaz of Giants Are Small. The choreographer was Karole Armitage, who has been affectionately dubbed the “Punk Ballerina.” “I had met Karole through mutual friends and then I saw a performance of Armitage Gone! Dance downtown, and I thought it was really fun – Very punk rock. When I got attached to ‘A Dancers Dream’ and heard that she was going to do the project as well, I got very excited because I knew we would work well together. She has a background of working with Balanchine, she knows the style, she knows my dancing, and she’s a huge fan of New York City Ballet. We did a story ballet, so the steps had to correspond to the story. Her rep is really fun: You’ll be doing a classical step and then all of a sudden you will do something completely funky. You don’t really do that a lot at City Ballet.” The process of creating a new work pushed Mearns into developing her own points of view. “We are in the studio six hours a day for two and a half weeks. Every day is something new. I was able to work with Karole and the other artists to create this story. A lot of times it’s not about the steps – it’s asking, ‘who I am interacting with? Is it going to read well to the audience?’ I have never been able to do that before at this level, and put my opinions in there. The dancing thing is easy for me to get and to pick up - it’s creating the entire world around the story that was so exciting,” said Sara. nycballet.com/Dancers Sara Mearns in ‘A Dancer’s Dream ‘ at the New York Philharmonic

The Historic Village Latch Inn at 101 Hill Street in Southampton

Paradise Found: The Village Latch Inn By Isaiah Negron

The understated chic of the historic Village Latch Inn in Southampton made it a favorite of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, who championed both the preservation and restoration of the White House and the turn of the century “cottages” on the East End where she summered as child. Jackie admired the architecture of the Latch, which was built in 1901 and is attributed to the legendary architect Stanford White. Jackie wanted the buildings protected for future generations. In 1974, Marta and Martin White fell in love with this charming property in the Village of Southampton and bought it. The Whites shared Jackie’s vision of the conservation of The Latch, located at

greenhouse from the adjacent Merrill Lynch estate, and relocated them to the Village Latch. In doing this, the Whites saved these important structures from the fate of the Irving Hotel, which was burned to the

Chef Will Foden and Wine Director Jean-Luc Le Du recently re-crafted the menu at 83 ½, the farm-to-table Italian gem on the Upper East Side. Owner Vincenzo Mangiafridda’s previous culinary treasure served as the muse for his newest. The idea behind 83 ½ began to ferment in his mind while developing Gino’s Pizzeria, a 20-year-old beloved neighborhood spot, and in between trips to the family farm in Caccamo, Sicily. The heart and soul of Italian food is grounded in home cooking, and such intimacy is what makes 83 ½ special. The restaurant only seats 40 and patrons can observe the bustling kitchen from their tables or vie for the chef ’s counter kitchen. Regardless of where you sit, the owner is known for making everyone feel like family. The small, farm-to-table restaurant utilizes seasonal produce—a rare, but coveted trait within Manhattan’s dining landscape. The

menu strongly favors Mangiafridda’s Sicilian roots and incorporates the freshest produce available. We started with a couple of small poached tuna, and baccala polpettes (braised enough to whet our appetites for the meal to come yet left us awaiting the subsequent courses.

For our second course, we went with the “Rabbit Siciliana” and grilled orata. The rabbit was more delicate than you would expect and came with a chickpea side. The orata was wrapped in escarole and accompanied with a Sorrento lemon and extra-virgin olive oil. Our time in the restaurant was reminiscent of the long, indulgent, and multi-course repast that is typical of a meal in Italy itself. 83 ½ is truly a neighborhood gem, but better than a

As your Curmudgeon-in-Residence and dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker, I must say I am so annoyed at the high prices of Broadway shows. Years ago I used to see every show on Broadway. No sooner did a show open, I read the reviews, and promptly bought tickets. That was when ticket prices were reasonable--some as low as $10 or $15 for previews. And no, that was not in the days of Flo Ziegfeld. Today it’s not at all unusual for shows to charge over $100 for tickets--the cheaper tickets. Naturally, the people who go to the theater today are tourists who feel they must see at least one Broadway show when visiting New York, the very wealthy, and young kids who will wait on line for hours to get discount or standing-room tickets. The entire middle class has been shut out except to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. For a couple to go to the theater today could easily cost $500 when you factor in the tickets, dinner, parking and a babysitter. How many people can afford it? It’s become something you do to celebrate a special occasion and only after some thought and consideration. Sadly, the reason the theater is so expensive today is because of unions. The stagehands, carpenters, musicians, etc. are making a good living and that’s wonderful, of course, but they’ve made it impossible for middle class people like themselves to enjoy the theater. Today the unions tell the producer how many people they must hire. Even if a show is set up so the actors move the scenery themselves, the producers still have to hire a certain number of stagehands who sit backstage and play cards. It’s wonderful that the stagehands and others so important to the Broadway theater are getting a good wage but at what cost to theatergoers? How do they get enough money to support their families and people still get to enjoy the theatre? It’s a conundrum, or, as Yul Brynner said in “The King and I,” “it’s a puzzlement.” Miriam Silverberg is a freelance journalist and owner of Miriam Silverberg Associates, a boutique publicity agency in Manhattan.
