Oh, What a Party! While working for AVENUE magazine, photographer Mary Hilliard captured the people, the galas and the pouf dresses of the late ’80s as no one else did. In these pages, she opens up her archive to share her memories and era-defining images.

Judy Price’s AVENUE AVENUE’s founder tells the story about how it all began, and how she overcame some of the hurdles of starting a highend magazine with enduring cachet.

35 on Thirty-five Thirty-five of our favorite New Yorkers tell stories about nights and days from the last thirty-five years that left an indelible impression on them. Together, luminaries like Bob Colacello, Jay McInerney, Peggy Siegal, Nina Griscom, Alex Kuczynski, Richard Johnson and Donald Trump, plus many more, weave a tapestry of social history that includes some of the city’s greatest characters, as well as stories that have never been told about them, from the mid-’70s to the present day.

From left: Dani Stahl, Luigi Tadini and Alex Kuczynski: three of the 35 New Yorkers who share stories from 35 years in New York.

JOSH LEHRER

Mrs. Price imposed a very a strict dress code: skirts or dresses only, preferably above the knee, hose, heels and salon perfect hair— very ‘Mad Men.’ —Julie Dannenberg

n my early twenties, when I was still somewhat confused about my future, my stepmother suggested I consider a job in advertising sales. I had never heard of this profession, but I trusted her and loved the idea of working at a magazine. Through her I found a headhunter who promptly sent me out on my first interview with Judith Price, who was the founder and then-publisher of AVENUE magazine. I am not quite sure why, given my utter lack of experience, but she hired me. Thus began my first 10-year stint at AVENUE. The following Monday I was given instructions to meet Mrs. Price at the Regency Hotel for a 7:30 breakfast. I wore what I thought was the perfect outfit: a Perry Ellis blue wrap maxi skirt with an argyle vest (oye!). Thus began my education. As I glanced at the menu, I was told in no uncertain terms that “we do not actually eat breakfast,” that in the home of the “power breakfast” we were here to do business. Message received . . . From the Regency, Mrs. Price walked me across the street to the store that defined elegance, Martha, the ultimate boutique. Here I thought I was chic; I was way off. What a first day. This was the first of many shopping expeditions as one of “the AVENUE girls,” as we were known then. Mrs. Price imposed a very a strict dress code: skirts or dresses only, preferably above the knee, hose, heels and salon-perfect hair—very “Mad Men.” To help us along, we would take a twice-annual trip to a designer of her choice—Herrera or Carolyne Roehm—where we were given a presentation and allowed to choose three dresses per season. Oh, the ease of dressing in a couture uniform. Properly attired, we entertained clients on three martini-lunches at Le Cirque. I was never much of a drinker, but the rule was if they drank, you drank. This was how I learned, also from Judy Price, to always end the meal with a double espresso. It all sounds very glam, but we worked hard and learned at the foot of the master. In the mid-’90s, I moved on to other magazines—and left a piece of myself behind. That is why when I got a phone call offering me the opportunity to come back as publisher of AVENUE almost 10 years ago, I jumped. I am so proud of the job that we have all done to bring AVENUE into the 21st century. AVENUE is not only a piece of me, but of all of our readers and devoted advertisers. Thank you to the Tiffanys, the Seaman Scheppses, the Chanels, all of the real estate community and so many more who have stuck by us through these 35 years. I raise a martini glass to you all.

Editor’s Letter

35th Anniversary

DEAR READERS,

T

In this issue, we have raconteurs aplenty doing what Barry Diller cleverly calls ‘reminiscening.’ —Janet Allon

wo things I fell in love with a long time ago: A good story and a good party. The issue you are holding in your hands—the 35th anniversary edition of AVENUE—is both. It’s a celebration and a look back at 35 phenomenal years of chronicling New York’s social life. It’s a gathering of people we have enjoyed, covered and loved, whose voices and photos once again fill our pages with grace and laughter. No one can go to every party, of course. And not everyone was around back in the heyday of Studio 54, Xenon, Regine’s and other ‘70s hot spots. But if you happened to have missed the party, the next best thing is to hear about it from the mouth of a friend and a great storyteller. In this issue, we have raconteurs aplenty, doing what Barry Diller cleverly calls “reminiscening.” Bob Colacello and Peggy Siegal talk about unforgettable Studio 54 nights. Boaz Mazur tells a tale about Elizabeth Taylor flopping on the floor at Regine’s. Ex-“Page Six” chronicler Richard Johnson weighs in with a tale of the tape: a fake boxing match between Taki Theodoracopulus and Count Roffredo Gaetani, complete with after-party at Mortimer’s. AVENUE was born in a storied time. America was celebrating its bicentennial, the summer of ’77 was about to unfold, Studio 54 was opening. The beginning of AVENUE was a story itself. Founder Judy Price tells it in these pages, and John Loring, Tiffany’s design director emeritus, tells the story of how Tiffany became AVENUE’s first advertiser, hence a magazine—with legs, as it turns out—was born. We had such a good time putting this issue together. I’ve been happily editing this book for just about six of those 35 years, and helping produce this issue—a team effort as always—and the oral history that weaves through our “35 on Thirty-five” feature story has been a highlight. Special thanks to the fabulous Mary Hilliard for her photo retrospective of great parties “on the avenue.” And many thanks to you for reading us, supporting us and regaling us with your stories all these years.

WHAT IS passing down your values as well as your assets

WORTH?

How is worth measured? Is it simply total assets minus total liabilities? At U.S. Trust, we believe affluence should be measured not only by net worth, but by the things in life that take on a worth all their own. And we apply our intellectual resources and financial acumen toward helping clients realize that worth. Because we believe you deserve more than wealth management — you deserve worth management.

T HE R E ’S NO S U C H T HIN G A S S M A R T MONE Y. ONLY S M A R T P E O P L E . T HE MONE Y J US T G O E S WHE R E T HE Y G O. Let’s face it, money on its own is dumb. It can’t decide where it wants to be, change its focus, or follow a trend. On the other hand, people who have amassed a vast amount of money have done so by applying their best thinking to the process. Those smart enough to accumulate wealth tend to understand the intricacies of maintaining it. They understand that there is a significant difference between simply investing and truly managing assets. It goes without saying that recent events have made it harder than ever to accomplish that. Smart people soon realize that they need the right partner to help them maintain and grow their fortunes. We know, because many of them are finding their way to us at Bessemer. Smart people do their research. And no doubt they are encouraged by the fact that at Bessemer, we invest our clients’ money right alongside our own. Our teams include some of the brightest and most sophisticated minds in the business today, from investments to taxation to inheritance, and even philanthropy. We’re continuously analyzing the volatile financial landscape that now exists, and making longer-term forecasts while seizing shorter-term opportunities. Of course, smart people tend to know that good business partnerships, based on trust, integrity, and mutual interest, are rare. So if, as the old adage says, you believe in following the “smart money,” there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing you. Go ahead, ask us some tough questions. We understand. After all, that would be the smart thing to do. Call us or visit www.bessemer.com. Minimum relationship $10 million. David Bunce Southeast Region Head 239-659-6299

Hay-Day R. Couri Hay reflects on 35 fabulously successful years in New York and how he cultivated a philosophy based on the “power of the party”

ociety columnist, television reporter, PR tee and the power of the party,” Hay says. A glamorous opening guru—these are some of the hats R. Couri Hay night draws the A-list, which generates publicity, awareness and dons from his seat atop the junction of money. Hay inherently understood these relationships, even Manhattan social life and business. But anyone though he didn’t yet have the experience to affirm it. who knows Hay well knows that, above all, he likes to have fun. In the ’80s, Hay helped plan the parties at Studio 54 after Hay’s history as a New Yorker reads like a who’s who of Mark Fleischman traded the Morgan Hotel to Steve Rubell bold-faced names, luxury brands and cultural institutions. His and Ian Schrager for the legendary club. Then, in the ’90s, first foray behind the city’s oft-closed doors was in the early Hay became a partner in the supper club Tatou, which ’70s at Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, where Hay worked quickly became the place to be. It didn’t take him long to alongside Bob Colacello as a contributing editor. “On the realize that his experiences as a writer for Town & Country shuttle from Washington, D.C., I literally tripped over Warren Beatty and interviewed him mid-flight,” Hay tells me, evoking the image of a surprised celebrity cornered by a young reporter. Other big names followed, including Princess Grace, Marlene Dietrich, Ginger Rogers and Bette Davis. “I went to the Waynflete School with Bette’s son, Michael Merrill,” Hay remembers. “My mother and Bette went to our first grade play to cheer us on. We were bugs—no leads, no affinity for the stage,” he laughs. Later, Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn introduced Hay to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She asked him to help draw young people to the American Ballet Theater. So in 1987, Hay formed the company’s Junior Council, asking pals Anne Hearst, Cornelia Guest and Count Erik Wachtmeister to join him as co-chairs of their annual gala. “Jackie was ABT’s Honorary Chair and Pat Buckley and Nan Kempner were the chairs,” Hay recalls. “Blaine Trump joined them later and still carries the torch today with Caroline Kennedy.” Above: R. Couri Hay with John Lennon at the Kennedy Center, circa 1978 “In those days, society didn’t hire press agents,” Hay continues. “The chairs were expected to do it all, which was one of the reasons friendships flourished between and People and as the society editor of Hamptons Magazine high society columnists like Eugenia Sheppard and Aileen had taught him what stories the media wanted. So he did the Mehle and publicists like George Trescher, who advised Brooke logical thing and, in 1990, started his own company: R. Couri Astor.” Although Hay didn’t know it at the time, these were the Hay Creative Public Relations. “I think outside the box, more roots of his career in public relations. So, how did he attract the like a pentagram,” he chuckles. “It’s my job to make people’s budding socialites to the ballet? “The leadership of the commit- dreams come true.” 74 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

When Hay did his annual Academy Awards luncheons in the ’80s, honoring everyone from Tab Hunter to his friends Barbara and Timothy Leary, he once unveiled a real live Oscar—golden, chiseled and all-but-naked. Guests gasped when ABT’s Rocker Verastique sprung to life and pirouetted. Then there was the Mont Blanc S&M-themed party he helped promote in the ’90s. “The Learys’ had introduced me to Helmut Newton and I thought if he can make black leather glamorous, why can’t Mont Blanc?” Hay explains. Of course, it’s not all fun and games with Hay. His business is founded on the serious premise that luxury has a responsibility to philanthropy. “Over the decades, I have bonded various luxury companies—including Harry Winston, Bergdorf Goodman, Prada, Chopard, Escada, Bulgari and dozens of others you’d know—to scores of organizations,” Hay says, listing off The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, Henry Street Settlement, the Central Park Conservancy, Lighthouse International and New Yorkers for Children, which gave the first benefit after 9/11 attended by then-Mayor Rudolph Guiliani. For the 2010 launch of Giorgio Gucci’s cognacs, Giorgio G, Hay threw a gala at The Pierre honoring 25 smaller charities. But back to the glamour. “I’ve always loved helping launch the careers of young, beautiful, smart women,” Hay says proudly, naming Amanda Hearst, Lydia Hearst-Shaw, Sarah Bradford, Elizabeth Jagger and Nicky and Paris Hilton. “The teenage Hilton sisters were my interns at Hamptons Magazine.” “I get a kick out of taking an idea and seeing it grow into a reality,” he continues. And Hay has achieved just that for numerous brands and people in almost every realm imaginable. “I’ve represented movies, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, interior designers, doctors, lawyers and cupcakes!” he trumpets. Of course, keeping things new and exciting is what Hay does. Well, that and the parties. “Never underestimate the power of the party!” he chimes. ✦

AVENUE How an idea for a magazine grew into a New York institution

Above: Peter and Judy Price

P

eople often ask about the origins of AVENUE. I conceived the idea of a “pictorial New Yorker” when I was a business reporter for TIME magazine. My vision involved creating a quality magazine exclusively for residents of better buildings on the Upper East Side. The challenge was threefold: how to attract talent for a new magazine; how to get advertising; and critically, how to penetrate the fortress buildings.

76 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

Because quality was the keynote, we needed signature photography to distinguish AVENUE from The New Yorker. Through my term as head of MoMA’s art lending service I met the great names who would dominate the pages of AVENUE for decades. From the first issue onward we hailed the likes of Arnold Newman, George Tice, Harry Benson, Duane Michals, Elliott Erwitt, Horst and, of course, Ralph Gibson, who produced our covers for 25 years.

I dressed our delivery boys in Brooks Brothers blazers with button down shirts and club ties. —Judy Price The next challenge was advertising to fund the then-free magazine. Following the old story of the general pointing to his chest of medals—“because I got this one, I got the rest”—I met with Walter Hoving, the grand old chairman of Tiffany & Co. As I concluded my easel presentation, he said, “I’m not sure this will work, but it stands for quality and therefore deserves our support.” His faith galvanized a dozen other names who remained clients for years to come, including Bergdorf Goodman, BMW, Chase Manhattan, Johnnie Walker Black, Tanqueray, Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Cartier, Harry Winston and American Airlines. Last, but in fact most challenging, was gaining access to exclusive buildings whose tight security pushed any deliveries to the back entrance. In order to get in the front door, I dressed our delivery boys in Brooks Brothers’ blazers 78 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

with button down shirts and club ties. They arrived in black limos and the doormen graciously received the magazine for residents. Having established AVENUE in New York, we then expanded nationally to the 10 top zip codes in the United States. Later came foreign language editions in Japan and China. I was, in fact, the cover girl of The Wall Street Journal Asia after pioneering the first foreign magazine in China. After selling AVENUE nearly 10 years ago, I founded the National Jewelry Institute and published four books on design and jewelry. Our current exhibition, “Notorious & Notable: 20th Century Women of Style,” is on display at the Museum of the City of New York. My fifth book will appear next year, titled War & Peace: Masterpieces of Patriotic Jewelry and Decorations. ✦

VENUE began with Judy Price’s sensational idea, which she told Walter Hoving of Tiffany & Co. about. Mr. Hoving, who was a genius of marketing, thought that Judy was a genius of marketing, and he gave her a 12-time contract on the spot for full-page ads in her magazine. That didn’t do anything to discourage other advertisers, I can guarantee you of that. Walter Hoving never missed.

was present at the birth of the power breakfast. It was through the eyes of my father, Preston Robert Tisch. He, along with Lew Rudin, decided that the leaders of the business community should get together with political leaders and talk about ways to save New York City. This was about the time of that famous Daily News headline, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” My parents were living at the Regency then, and my father, being the consummate host, said, “Why don’t you all come to breakfast at the Regency Hotel?” So the business community started coming. Today, when people say “power breakfast,” they still think of the Regency. It’s terminology known around the world.

t was the year of the bicentennial: 1976. I was all alone in town, but Diana Vreeland told me, “I will take care of you.” I got an invitation for drinks at Mrs. Vreeland’s apartment and then dinner at Regine’s, the nightclub at the Regency Hotel that had just opened. I arrived at 550 Park Avenue where Mrs. Vreeland lived, and Yvonne, the maid, greeted me, saying, “Madame is not ready yet.” The famous vodka and peanuts and crudités were ready to nibble on. Twenty minutes later, Mrs. Vreeland breezed into the wonderful red room and said, “I just wanted to tell you, it’s not a grand quelque chose, but Elizabeth Taylor is coming with John Warner,” the former secretary of the Navy. They had apparently met the night before and clicked. The bell rang and in came John Warner, looking like a movie star, Elizabeth Taylor—who looked slightly pudgy, I thought, in a shimmery Halston organza jumpsuit—and Halston himself, looking very dapper in a white suit. We were having drinks when John Warner tried to get close to Elizabeth Taylor. By mistake, he dropped his drink on her. She scolded him, saying, “Oh, you peasant, you don’t even know how to drink properly, you farmer . . . ” (John Warner had this wonderful huge estate in Virginia). Then she said, “Halston, can you help me clean myself up?” The two of them went into the bathroom, and stayed for a while. Twenty minutes or so went by and Mrs. Vreeland said, “We better check on those lovey doveys, Regine is waiting for us.” The two of them came out of the bathroom looking very happy, very high, like they were on another planet. Halston put his hand in my hand and said, “If you want some, there is something for you also,” and I noticed there was a little bottle. I said, “I’m not a prude, but I am the date of Mrs. Vreeland tonight and don’t think I can handle both.” We went around the block to the Regency Hotel in a limousine, and were greeted by Regine. We sat down and the music started. After a few minutes, John Warner asked Elizabeth Taylor to dance in honor of the bicentennial. He was holding her when she just slid out of his arms and fell flat on the floor—she was so zonked. It was just the beginning of the paparazzi, and some photographers took pictures, but Regine did not allow any press in the club in those days. I’m told that the story of the night Elizabeth Taylor fell on the floor at Regine’s will be in Regine’s book, which just came out in French. It’s coming out in English soon, too.

y favorite New York story is during the blackout in the summer of 1977. There was no electricity for a day. The traffic lights were not working.

uring the blackout of 1977, I was an illustrator at Joe Eula’s apartment on 54th Street, showing him some photographs, so we were concentrating on the light source. We were examining the photos when the lights went out! At that point, we could use the telephone, but long distance was more difficult. Well, as we were on 54th and Fifth Avenue, guess who came by? None other than Steve Rubell from up the street at Studio 54, in a convertible with champagne, music, etc. And we all jumped in the car and drove off to Elaine’s. When we got to there, we all took the tables outside, put candles on them and had a sort of blackout party. New Yorkers are always so much fun during “disasters” like blackouts, snowstorms, water shortages, no air conditioning. We had a marvelous time. Then, I remember us walking in the pitch dark to my apartment on 77th Street and literally bumping head-on into other people, also walking around. I remember it being strangely quiet.

The curtain went up and out came a white horse, led by a beautiful boy, covered only in gold glitter. There was a beautiful girl riding the horse, also covered only in glitter. She hopped off and Bianca was lifted onto the horse, where she sat side-saddle. That’s when that famous photo was taken. About 150 people were invited; Halston was the host, and Mick Jagger and Mikhail Baryshnikov disco-danced together. At midnight, the doors opened and the public came pouring in—and Studio 54 was launched as the epicenter of the international club scene. The following year, Halston gave a birthday party for Elizabeth Taylor. The Rockettes wheeled out the cake, which was a giant portrait of Elizabeth Taylor, and she made the first cut right across her marzipan bosom.

t was early November 1977. Liza Minnelli was the toast of the town, starring on Broadway in The Act. Her 11 o’clock song was “New York, New York,” which was written specifically for her by John Kander and Fred Ebb. (Frank Sinatra eventually stole Liza’s show stopper; it became his signature song and pissed her off for years.) Liza and Billie Jean King were my first clients at the hot public relations company PMK, which also represented Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Richard Gere, Robert Altman and Steven Spielberg’s films. I was the new eager beaver-star struck assistant to the legendary and beloved publicist, Lois Smith. Billie Jean adored me, and Liza instantly hated me (God knows why). Liza and I were backstage in her tiny dressing room after a show when she said, “Can you get me into this new place, Studio 54?” I said, “Liza, you are Liza. We will go over and figure it out.” We arrived in a huge black stretch limo, and it was bedlam on the street. It was freezing. Kids in disco get-ups were screaming, “Steve, Steve, over here!” I said to Liza, “Sit here. I will do reconnaissance.” I broke into breast stroke arm movements, cutting through the mob, yelling, “Excuse me! Excuse me! Let me through! Liza’s in the car, Liza’s in the car!” As I approached the velvet rope, a very short guy with very short hair in a very puffy silver down jacket yelled, “Peggy! How are you? Come in.” It was my dear friend from Syracuse University, Steve Rubell. I said, “Steve, what are you doing here?” He said, “I own the place.” I said, “Liza’s in the car!” He said, “Go get her.” I swam back through the hordes of kids, opened the limo’s back door and announced, “You are not going to believe this. My best friend from college owns the place. We are in.” Back at the entrance to the club Steve opened the velvet rope with a flourish and immediately embraced Liza—this total stranger—like a long lost lover. Neither listened as I said, “Liza, meet Steve; Steve, meet Liza.” With his arms tightly around her waist, Steve posed with Liza for their first of thousands of photos together. Then they strolled towards the pulsating lights and deafening music. I was not only forgotten, but accidentally left behind as the velvet rope snapped shut. After much pleading, a sympathetic security guard let me in. Then I walked right into my other dear friend from college, Ian Schrager. I said, “What are you doing here?” He said, “I own the place.” (Of course—they were best friends at school.) I told him about being dumped at the door. He told me that Steve took Liza to the bathroom to give her “refreshments.” Then he proudly showed me around his new club. So that is how Liza Minnelli met Steve Rubell. It was the beginning of an intense public friendship that became symbolic of the disco era.

Walter Hoving suggested I meet “his friend Janet’s daughter, Jackie.” I love that, calling Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis “my friend Janet’s daughter.” So we met, we sat on the sofa in Mr. Hoving’s office like two bad children being given a lecture by our parent. Afterwards, we each went back to our offices, and then the phone rang and it was Jackie. She said, “I think we better hit the decks running and get working on this project right away.” That, of course, was a great moment in my New York life. Isn’t that amazing? For the next 15 years, I worked with Jackie on books. She was the best person on every level to work with, to be friends with, to laugh with, to make ridiculous jokes with, to have a good time with. She was extremely witty and appreciative of wit, excellent at sizing situations up and making extraordinary comments about what was actually going on in the room, most of them unrepeatable. 35th Anniversary 2010 · AVENUE MAGAZINE | 87

brought Paloma Picasso to work at Tiffany & Co. in 1980. She had been one of my best friends in Europe. After the famous events of May 1968, things came to a halt in Paris. Paloma said, “I think we’d better think of somewhere else to go, and since you’re the oldest, maybe you’d better go find us something to do.” So, I came to New York and found us something to do. I had known Paloma since she was a 16-year-old living in her grandmother’s house in Paris. She became one of the world’s great jewelry designers. That was wonderful! There was also the thrill of working with Elsa Peretti at Tiffany & Co. We have a pretty star-studded cast of characters. These genius designers changed the way women wear jewelry.

remember well when my friend Arnold Scaasi told me about a rising New York couple, whom he described as “very attractive, rich, powerful, and the wife is Czech or something.” He thought I should meet this couple named Ivana and Donald Trump. (Can you believe there was ever a time when all New Yorkers did not know about the Trumps?) Well, I did meet them, and I loved them. They were a fabulous story. He was a homegrown kind of rich boy from a fine family in construction. She was a ski champ. When I first met Donald, I was amazed at his ego and braggadocio, but I still liked him. He struck me as healthily egomaniacal and also as an adroit businessman who wasn’t a crook. (I think my impressions were right!) Ivana was a sketch. You could hardly understand a word she said, but she was impressionable, generous and happy-go-lucky. I went on many excursions with the Trumps: in a helicopter in a storm to Atlantic City to see their casino; in a private jet to Palm Beach; to parties here, there and at Mar-a-Lago. Through Donald, I met a lot of interesting people, like Don King, football heroes and baseball stars. It was always an adventure—and a story or an item for my column. Then, several years after the Trumps’ ascendancy, all hell broke loose. They were separating, divorcing. He had a new girlfriend. Ivana, after much plastic surgery, was heartbroken. I became involved, taking sides like a dope. This ended up in a three-month marathon of Trumps all the time . . . on the front page of the Daily News and on “Live at Five” at WNBC. I was called night and day to leak, pontificate, keep up the gossip. In the end, Donald said he was buying the News in order to fire me. Though this was certainly not a positive time for me ethically, professionally, it was very good for my outlets. I became known the world over. I ended up in TIME magazine, in their cover story on gossip. Carl Bernstein denounced me for making more money than Pulitzer Prize reporters. (He was right!) Well, in the end, all turned around. After a few years of hard feelings on Donald’s side, he pronounced that we were friends after all. “I think I’m beginning to love you again!” he wrote in one of his big, elegant, cream stationery letters, suitable for framing. I had always liked Donald, so I kept on with both Trumps and, in time, I came to honor and admire their three children. The end of the ’70s, the beginning of the ’80s—it was the Trumps who made headlines. I remember them being omnipresent. Now they are both tycoons, separately. And in these times, they seem absolutely quaint in their one-time front page pasts. The Trumps defined this era and New York for me. They were, they still are, always a story.

We all spent hours getting ready in our “costumes.” I went as a man in a leather jockstrap, leather vest, beautiful black-and-white striped, silk robe, my riding boots, hair pulled back with a fake mustache and manly makeup. Absolutely no one knew who I was or even that I was in drag! All the boys thought I was another cute boy. Andy went as Dolly Parton with a big, blonde wig. Catherine Guinness went as Andy. Halston wore high heels and walked magnificently in them. A lot of people used costumes from Liza Minnelli, and Steve Rubell came in a huge, red ball gown à la Scarlett O’Hara. Steve’s dress caught on fire from one of the many candles Halston had around. We were all rushing, trying to put out the fire. Of course it was in the papers: “Page Six” and even The Washington Post.

A lot better than the 13 weddings I had done. The opening was very glamorous. Elizabeth Taylor, Malcolm Forbes, Pat Buckley and Nan Kempner were there. Later, a magazine called me up and asked if they could use the pictures. I told them to call YSL, and they said, “Yes.” The magazine asked, “How much for two pages?” I said, “Nothing, just give me a byline.” After that, I never stopped working: movie openings, charity events—I was out every night. I’ve photographed 261 weddings in my career. I photographed Vera Wang’s wedding at The Plaza. I photographed two out of the three Miller girls’ weddings. I went to the one in London, and the Queen was there. I did one in Bali. But the Miller wedding that was right here, at the foot of Wall Street, that one I did not do.

New York moment that changed the course of my life was meeting Nancy Reagan at Le Cirque in February 1981. The First Lady and President Reagan had gone to see Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, and they came to Le Cirque afterward. Sirio had arranged for the restaurant to be full of Reagan admirers. Reinaldo and Carolina Herrera invited me, Andy Warhol and some friends from abroad, Countess Marina Cicogna, Franco Rossellini and Florinda Bolkan. The Reagans were with the Bloomingdales, Jerry Zipkin, Claudette Colbert and Jan and Mike Cowles (who published Look magazine). Our group finished eating before the Reagans did, and everyone from our table dashed over to theirs. I felt kind of shy and so did Andy, so I went to get my coat and he followed. Suddenly, I heard Alfred Bloomingdale asking in his booming voice, “Where’s Bob Colacello? He’s the only real Republican here.” So Alfred introduced Andy to the President, and then he said, “Mr. President, this is Bob Colacello, the editor of Interview. He’s a real Republican.” And Reagan said, “That’s good.” I was introduced to Nancy Reagan next. She took both of my hands in hers and gave me that gaze, and said: “I’ve heard a lot about you.” The only thing I could think to say in response was, “I’ve heard a lot about you, too.” She let out this deep, warm, sophisticated laugh that made me think of her in a whole new way. And she continued holding onto my hands for a remarkably long time. As soon as we left the restaurant, Andy started saying, “She really loves you, Bob.” I could tell he was very jealous by the number of times he repeated it.

remember sneaking out at night to go to Nell’s. What Nell’s had was the best of all worlds: downtown, uptown, celebrities, artists. My friends and I—Marie-Chantal, Samantha Kaye, Alexandra von Furstenberg, Lizzie Grubman, Tracy Ellis Ross—would get all dressed up and go down there once or twice a week. Sometimes we would run into Lizzie’s father’s clients, like John F. Kennedy Jr. and Madonna. To me, that was before New York became jaded. There were no photographers taking pictures of what people were wearing. We weren’t dressing to impress. You weren’t on “Page Six” the next day. I felt we were all so old and fancy.

y first job in New York was seating people at the Odeon in 1983. I was seating Andy Warhol, Whoopi Goldberg and Jean-Michel Basquiat and all of those people when the art world was red hot in Soho. I worked for George Trescher, a brilliant guy and a wonderful character. He was half German and half Irish with a fiery temper, but utterly brilliant and, on a genius level, a fundraiser and press rep. He was a great friend of Mrs. Astor and really helped to guide her “Mrs. Astor of New York” persona. I got to help organize Caroline Kennedy’s wedding and Maria Shriver’s wedding.

arrived in New York in the mid-’80s, straight from the tepid shores of England, where I had attended boarding school. The Sloane Rangers, who were easily recognizable since they were uniformly clad in the three B’s (Burberry, Benetton and Barbour), dominated British social life at the time. Princess Diana was the Queen of Style and tea with a touch of rum the drink of choice. Like the perpetual rains, the life of a teenager in Britain was rather drab. Oh boy, did my 18-year-old eyes bulge at the sight of my New York contemporaries. Clad in Chanel and Valentino, they were party-hopping from Regine’s to Club A and from Area to Palladium. The city never slept, nor did I. During the week, dinners were hosted by the infamous duo Marc Biron and Ludovic Autet of the Junior International Club. On weekends, one recovered in the glorious Hamptons. It was overwhelming, intriguing and, above all, great fun! Everybody rubbed shoulders with everyone. To what extent? I was about to find out. Following my parents’ plea to take me under his protective wing, our friend Ludwig Salm (“Luwi” not “Ludi”) invited me to a dinner party. Luwi was one of the eligible bachelors in New York, all seven feet of him, and a Prince to boot. The dinner was stacked with beautiful people, and I was terribly intimidated. Seated to my left was a charming Frenchman, Sébastien de Ganay, who turned out to be a classmate at Columbia and is still one of my best friends. Placed on my right was a handsome American gentleman by the name of Michael Dulksorn—at least that’s what it said on his place card, Luwi’s writing was atrocious. Sebastien and I were quickly engaged in conversation, but polite society dictates that you spend at least 10 minutes with each dinner partner. After a while I felt I had grossly neglected Mr. Dulksorn, not that he showed much interest since a horde of models was trying to get his attention. I studied his face and somehow there was something strangely familiar about him. Deja Vu? I asked him, “Do we know each other?” “No.” The answer was economical and to the point. “Do you live here?” “Yes.” Okaaaaay. I kept on staring and suddenly it clicked. “You know who you remind me of?” I asked him in my Anglo/German accent. He looked mortified. “There is this policeman on television in ‘The Streets of San Francisco.’ He looks exactly like you!” Poor Mr. Dulksorn was speechless. After a while he replied. “Well Einstein, that’s because I am the cop on ‘The Streets of San Francisco.’ And please stop calling me Mr. Dulksorn; my name is Michael Douglas.” 35th Anniversary 2010 · AVENUE MAGAZINE | 93

’d already been living in New York for six or seven years, long enough to consider myself pretty savvy and even jaded, when I chanced upon a tableau that caught me by surprise and came to seem emblematic for me. I was on Fifth Avenue in midtown, God knows why, waiting for the light at 51st Street. Across the street, framed between St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Saks Fifth Avenue, I spotted a billionaire standing next to a homeless man. I happened to recognize the billionaire because he’d recently bought Revlon and was much in the news. The homeless man was wearing several ragged coats and carrying a variety of shopping bags stuffed with God knows what. On the other side of the billionaire was a well-dressed hulk, presumably a bodyguard. But for at least 30 seconds, the billionaire and the bum stood there side by side, waiting for the light. Before the light turned, I said to myself, “I’m going to write a novel big enough to encompass a billionaire and a homeless man as characters.” (It would be my fourth, Brightness Falls.) And that’s about as representative a Manhattan tableau as I can remember.

ne of the more memorable nights I’ve had was back in 1985 when Count Roffredo Gaetani and Taki Theodoracopulos staged a three-round boxing match for charity at St. Agnes High School on East 44th Street. They were good friends and they thought it would be fun. I wrote up the item for “Page Six”: ‘Pair of Gentlemen duke it out, keep smiling.’ This was when aristocrats prided themselves on being sportsmen. Reinaldo Herrera was Roffredo’s second, and Claus von Bülow was standing in Taki’s corner, holding a towel for him. Franco Rossellini, Countess Pilar Crespi and Frank Shields (Brooke Shields’ father) were all there. Roffredo, a.k.a. the Italian Stallion, was declared the winner. He had the advantage of height, weight, experience and being 16 years younger. Later, like the gentlemen they are, the two gladiators, accompanied by their everso-social entourages, toasted each other with champagne at Mortimer’s.

ne of my favorite New York moments was when Wollman Rink reopened after being closed for seven years. I had seen it unused for too long and offered to renovate it for the city. It was a labor of love. Four months later, we had the opening with Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Scott Hamilton and others to help celebrate this great day for New York City. Since then, the rink has hosted thousands of happy skaters. I can see the rink from my apartment, and it’s a reminder of a special moment for everyone.

was in charge of organizing the lunch that followed Andy Warhol’s memorial service in 1987. Everyone went to St. Patrick’s and then they trooped to the Paramount Hotel—Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager had just bought it, and Robert Isabell did the most extraordinary job turning it into this sort of fantasy playland. He made the floor bubble gum pink, painted the walls and the gothic-looking ceiling silver, then hung this enormous painting that apparently was the last thing Andy worked on—ironically it, was “The Last Supper.” It was an amazing party directly after the service. The DJ was there and Debbie Harry walked in playing her music and then the Rolling Stones walked in, the Ramones. It was an extraordinary time.

G

lenn Bernbaum, who owned Mortimer’s, was such a curious character. He was quite cantankerous and had this funny habit of sidling up to your table, sitting down, ordering for himself and getting up before the check came and you realized you were paying for his lunch or dinner. A lot of the same people went for dinner, but lunch was the real scene-stealer in New York. Jackie Onassis and Nancy Reagan would always get the first tables. You would see people do a double take at the First Ladies having lunch.

KAREN AND RICHARD LEFRAK

n the late ’80s, I had the privilege of meeting Horst, the photographer, and his boyfriend, Valentine Lawford. It was through them that I first met Eleanor Lambert. Around the same time, I also met Geoffrey Beene. He adored Eleanor, so we had that in common. I would consider those three—Horst, Lambert and Beene—to be the biggest influences on my present-day career in journalism and fashion. Eleanor was my neighbor so I spent a lot of time at her apartment. The most interesting collection of people convened at Eleanor’s for her Best-Dressed List meetings. To kick off Fashion Week, she always hosted a party to which all the out-oftown editors were invited. Eleanor founded Fashion Week, the Costume Institute, the International Best-Dressed Poll and the CFDA—still the four cornerstones of the American fashion industry. She also helped establish many designers: Cardin, Norell, Anne Klein, Bill Blass and Kenny Lane among them. She originated fashion PR. She championed John Loring and brought him to Tiffany. And she was a big protector of mine, an influence and a guide. She was the fairy godmother. Eleanor was funny and strong-willed, with a temper, but she had huge reserves of love in her heart. She was very opinionated. Originally, she had been an artist, a sculptor, so her eye for fashion had nothing to do with commerce or egomania—it was really about quality. She was very forward-thinking, without nostalgia or sentimentality. There was a fraternity of people who were close with her, a number of them on the Best-Dressed List committee. Jerry Zipkin was always at those meetings, he was an important factor. Reinaldo Herrera was essential to those convocations, too. Eleanor had one of the great New York apartments. Not super grand, but the way a New York apartment should be. It was an old world, pre-war apartment on the 11th floor with what I consider the best view of New York: the Central Park Reservoir. The 11th floor, maybe the 15th, is just about as high up as anyone needs to be. Otherwise you lose the human scale and you might as well be in a helicopter. Everything in her apartment held personal meaning. Things were allowed to wear out; she had been there forever and ever. Her bedroom was done in mattress ticking, which Geoffrey Beene had given her—very simple, but ultra chic. In her living room, she had an oversized needlepoint stool that belonged to Queen Victoria and an Alex Katz painting. Her son, Bill, is an art critic and poet, and he is friendly with the Katzes. Eleanor was extremely with it. A Noguchi bust of her was among the objects you saw upon entering (she had been Noguchi’s publicist, too). Her kitchen was a labyrinthine wonderland; that’s where she made her famous red-pepper jelly, an annual Christmas gift. I have a few things from her apartment—the chandelier in my daughter’s bedroom was in Eleanor’s bedroom hallway—so she is a presence in our home always.

It was white lace, off the shoulder, with a tight waist and a big skirt. It was dreamy. The whole evening was dreamy. There was a Victorian theme because the orchestra was founded in Victorian times. One hundred artists, designers and celebrities designed fans, since Victorian ladies carried fans. Tiffany’s auctioned them off, and AVENUE published a supplement about them; God bless AVENUE! It was a huge success and a huge financial success. I felt so privileged to serve them.

he 150th anniversary of the Philharmonic was a white-tie event. That is my only recollection of ever having to be in tails, other than a wedding. For the event, everyone had to waltz in sync.

am a born and raised ‘city kid,’ as they call us, so my whole life has really been one big indelible New York City moment. When I think of favorites, Central Park automatically comes to mind. It truly is a sanctuary of sorts for me, a quiet place—nowadays, anyhow. In high school, it was about wearing my kilt and flirting with boys after school. But that’s just one moment; I’ve enjoyed so many there. I’ll always remember getting dressed up at 15 with my besties, fake ID in hand, and drinking sangria at various Third Avenue eateries before going down the slide at Club USA. On one particular night, I scraped my elbow. I have a scar! That’s truly indelible.

he year before Princess Diana died, I got a call at the Carlyle Hotel to do her hair. After I was done, she asked me to come back the next morning. She did two extraordinary things. First, she insisted I take the flowers from the room, since she no longer had any use for them. Then she said, “Let’s have some fun . . . Wherever I arrive, there are always hundreds of thousands of letters waiting for me. My staff just picks out a few for me to sample.” So she and I started reading, and we were in stitches. There was a psychic who wanted to meet her to cleanse her soul. There was one from a plastic surgeon. We were rolling around on the floor. These people were cold-calling a princess! 100 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

favorite New York moment was one night in the late 1990s. I was coming home late from work at The New York Times. It had been one of those grueling days and I had no patience left. I looked at the cab driver in the rear view mirror and said, “Buddy, do you really know where you’re going?” I got out of the taxi, walked over to his door, jerked my thumb at him and said, “Get out, I’m driving.” He was new and very young and, I think, slightly shocked and slightly not sure of the custom of the country. So—to my amazement—he moved to the passenger side of the front seat. I pulled up at my apartment building in five minutes and the doorman stared at me as if I had walked in the front door naked, holding a hand grenade. If memory serves, I gave the driver a really good tip.

ne of my most memorable New York moments was the surprise party given for me in late January 1998. I don’t think anyone had ever given me a surprise party. It was given by Robert MacDonald, the director of the Museum of the City of New York at the time, Louis Auchincloss, Tara Rockefeller and Bill Manger thanking me for my work as the founding chairman of the Directors Council of the Museum. I thought I was going for a drink at the Century Association on West 43rd Street with Robert, but I walked in and there was a large gathering, maybe 75 people, including my father, stepmother and brother. I was surprised, honored and thrilled. To walk into this room and see my family, friends, members of the committee—it was a very heady experience for a person like me. I wasn’t used to this sort of attention. Tiffany’s did the invitation, and I was presented with it in a big, silver frame, which I still have.

I was totally inspired and in awe. I still get the same feeling whenever a show is really, really good. I thought to myself, ‘This is the coolest industry on earth!’ I had to figure out a way to be a part of it. I visited Mrs. Herrera backstage in the midst of all the models changing and the dresses on racks. That night, I snuck into Moomba—I was way underage—and had a very wild time.

hen I was pregnant with my first daughter, Ava, who is now 10, I could not afford to live in Manhattan. But I made sure to get a doctor in Manhattan, and drove into the city for all her pre-natal appointments so she could have a New York birth certificate. That was very important to me. My mom was telling me, “You know what? When you go into labor, you are not going to care which hospital you deliver in. You’re going to be in so much pain and you will just want to go to the hospital that is closest to you.” But no, when my water broke, I drove over the bridge to Manhattan. It was that important to me because I love New York, and I wanted to give that to my daughter on her birth certificate.

ne funny New York memory I have is meeting Peter Beard for the first time at his apartment. I’ll never forget the occasion because I had only recently moved to Manhattan to begin my freshman year at NYU, and the city was still a relatively unknown universe to me. I was with my uncle, Dirk Wittenborn, who is an old friend of Peter’s. As soon as we walked in the door, Peter poured a round of vodka and OJs, insisting that we accept the freshly cut cubes of ice he was dropping into our glasses. I felt mature for having been offered a genuine cocktail, so I drank every last sip from the bottom of my glass, including the final traces of water that had accumulated from the slow-melting ice. But no more than two minutes after I had handily polished off the beverage, Peter’s wife came marching into the room with the special ice tray in her hand. “Peter,” she said in a state of bewilderment, “why did you put the cat’s water bowl in the freezer?” Water bowl, I thought, there must be some misunderstanding. But there wasn’t any misunderstanding. We truly had been drinking the cat’s backwash. To this day, I’m not sure what inspired the peculiar bartending maneuver. Maybe it simply was an oversight, or maybe placing the pet’s water in the freezer just seemed like a convenient way to make ice. Whatever the case, Peter appeared to enjoy finishing his own drink that evening without any regrets. 35th Anniversary 2010 · AVENUE MAGAZINE | 103

veryone knows New York is, at the risk of sounding terribly clichéd, the city that never sleeps—the city that hustles and bustles with an unparalleled and addictive electric energy, day and night. But what happens when that electric energy goes completely kaput? Such was the case a few years ago during the famed blackout. Daniel and I were headed out of town, but were stopped in our tracks when the power went out and our car was rendered immovable in the garage, unable to be put on the electric lift. That night, we walked the city, and though the skyline that normally gives me goosebumps was dark, there was still a very palpable energy as diehard New Yorkers braved the streets for last-minute supplies and maybe to feel a sense of community we sometimes take for granted. As every restaurant we hit late that night stopped serving, we finally found refuge in one of our favorites: JG Melon. They were serving cheese sandwiches by candlelight. The memory of that night (and the cheese sandwich), as Daniel and I huddled together in the dark, will stay with me always.

y 60th birthday party was on the roof of the Gramercy Park Hotel. It was given by Claudia Cohen, Samantha Boardman Rosen and Aby Rosen and Ian Schrager. That was the last time Claudia Cohen was seen in public. No one knew she was ill; she had kept it secret. It was a seated dinner for 156 people, and the place was done up beautifully by Bronson Van Wyck. It was the greatest night, and also one of the saddest. My agent, Mort Janklow, said, “Bob, only you could draw such a range of people from so many different worlds.” That’s why I love New York. From my earliest days at Interview, I’ve always believed in mixing it up: uptown, downtown, gay, straight, black, white, old, young, frivolous, serious, American, South American, European, Asian, whatever. This is a city with a constantly evolving cast of characters who come here from everywhere, determined to make it. And to be able to write about these characters is constantly energizing.

ev. Al Sharpton has become a regular [at the Regency], and he’s quite a character. The thing about him is that he has the ability and the grace to laugh at himself. Every year, each hotel has to put together a video to honor the employee of the year. One year, we enlisted Al Sharpton to make a cameo in the video because he’s a recognizable national figure. He didn’t blink an eye. Filming took place on a Good Friday, which is, of course, a very busy day for him. At first, the person who makes his appointments said, “He is far too busy, he can’t do it.” But Al said, “No, I have 15 minutes, I’ll come by.” He went out of his way to ham it up and go over the top; he just made the whole video. He improvised and picked up a plate and, when the camera panned over to him, licked it to show how good the food is.

I had come to expect a guest list that only our magazine can muster—an intricate balance between the art and fashion worlds, the nightlife fauna and, of course, the iconic dinosaurs that have completely transformed the cultural landscape of our city. A line-up of diverse performers was announced on the invitation, but no one could expect the black-sequined cherry that would top this cake. A packed room filled with good friends, endless champagne and a roster of New York’s do-ers would be enough to make the evening a memorable one. But around midnight, we were all surprised when Liza Minnelli (yes, Ms. Sally Bowles herself) took the stage for a heart-stopping rendition of “New York, New York.” All 500 guests joined in the chorus that echoed through the vast marble halls of the library, making its foundation vibrate with excitement. The legendary Minnelli certainly knows how to work a room. It was a natural high that consumed each reveler, one of those moments that can only happen in a Woody Allen flick.

ne of my greatest thrills was meeting Valentino for the first time. We received a request to bring the collection to Rome. It was an enormous undertaking: shipping 40-plus garments to Valentino’s studio. When I arrived, I met the famous Oliver—the name, as many now know, that Valentino gives all his dogs. A few minutes later, Mr. Valentino himself arrived and had a model try on each piece, one by one. When he found something he felt required attention, everything came to a halt. He pulled out a sketch pad and started drawing how he thought the garment should look . . . It was magical. And of course he was right; they were better in the end. Valentino displayed a mastery of his trade that I had never seen before. This was true couture, and it was an incredible learning experience.

lex Soldier’s journey into jewelry making is as extraordinary as the multifaceted masterpieces he creates. A native of the city of Perm in the Ural Mountain region between Europe and Asia, Soldier received a master’s degree in computer engineering before a life-changing encounter in 1981. Namely, he met his future wife, Galina.“I was a computer engineer at the time,” Soldier says. “But she saw my drawings and attention to detail, recognized my artistic predisposition and thought that I should try my hand at jewelry design.” For a man with no previous experience with rings and things, this was an unexpected piece of advice indeed. But Soldier is a self-taught craftsman, and recalls being in his early teens when he carved a 15-inch sculpture out of wood and adorned it with stone accents he collected from his mother’s costume jewelry box. Though she may not have been thrilled, it was a formative experience he draws from to this day.

awarded annually in Russia to visionary artists, writers and musicians. Recently, Soldier collaborated with The Princess Grace Foundation-USA to create the Prince Rainier III Award. At this year’s 28th Annual Princess Grace Awards Gala in November, actor Denzel Washington and his wife, Pauletta, took home the honor. Intended to represent the interconnectedness of theater, dance and film, Soldier’s statuette, which can also be worn as a pin, is primarily platinum-plated

Each piece I create has a very distinctive character, be it a miniature sculpture or a piece of jewelry. I breathe life into every single one of my creations. —Alex Soldier Now, Soldier’s pieces are made of precious metals and inlaid with precious gemstones. Each piece is meticulously detailed and bares the marks of Soldier’s signature techniques. “I create my own tools to apply special decorative finishes to the metal,” Soldiers says of his artistic process. “It gives my jewelry that special touch that sets it apart from the rest.” Since emigrating to the United States in 1990, Soldier’s found both commercial success and critical acclaim from his contemporaries, receiving the Platinum Passion Award from Platinum Guild International in 1998 and the Spectrum honor from the American Gem Trade Association in 2002. But Soldier doesn’t just receive awards, he also creates them, including the “Triumph” statuette Left: Starfish convertible ring-brooch-pendant in 18-karat yellow, rose and white gold with diamonds and rubies 112 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

silver accented with black obsidian and Swarovski crystals, as well as Soldier’s unique metal texturizing. “Each piece I create has a very distinctive character, be it a miniature sculpture or a piece of jewelry,” Soldier explains. “I breathe life into every single one of my creations.” “Every gemstone has a mystery and its own story,” Soldier continues. “When I add my story to it through my designs, it becomes a timeless, precious poem that speaks to the heart.” Not being one to buy into fads and trends, Soldier’s pieces are meant to be collected over time, like works of art. “I believe in personal style and artistic expression that doesn’t succumb to the fleeting moment of a particular fashion,” he explains. Alex Soldier’s jewelry collection is available at select Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores, as well as at the Alex Soldier gallery.

35th Anniversary

High-Rise Charged with upholding and furthering the illustrious Sotheby’s International Realty brand, President and C.E.O. Kathy Korte rises to the occasion

S

ince the founding of the Sotheby’s auction house in 1744, the Sotheby’s name has earned a distinguished reputation as a marketer for many of the world’s most unique and valuable possessions. In response to the need for a comparable level of service for those seeking the finest real estate, Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., opened in 1976, and in the years since has maintained a history of upholding the principles of quality and service on which Sotheby’s was founded. Kathy Korte, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., has an extensive history herself in ensuring the renowned real estate company’s legacy of service, having begun her career with its Manhattan brokerage division in 1984. Rising quickly from an administrative assistant to assistant Manhattan brokerage manager to director of administration, Korte stepped into the position of senior vice president and manager for the Manhattan brokerage in 1992. Facing a full range of market conditions over the following years, she developed a mastery of the real estate brokerage business, and under her leadership, the office nearly tripled its profits while increasing sales volume to more than $1 billion. During her tenure, Sotheby’s International Realty’s Manhattan brokerage was the first local real estate office to achieve Manhattan sales prices of $15 million and subsequently $20 million, both high-profile sales that garnered widespread media attention. Sotheby’s International Realty was purchased in 2004 by Cendant, now Realogy Corporation, precipitating a period of dramatic growth for the company and its evolution into the global Sotheby’s International Realty® network of affiliated firms, covering 41 countries and territories. Korte grew right along with it. In 2005 she became executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Eastern Region of founding affiliate network member Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., and was finally named president and C.E.O. in 2006. Today, she oversees the management of 33 brokerage offices and more than 1,600 sales associates in key metropolitan and resort markets, including Manhattan, the Hamptons, Greenwich, Cape 114 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010

Cod, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Sonoma, Monterey Peninsula and Santa Fe. Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc.’s membership in the affiliate network provides the firm with a competitive edge in listing and selling fine homes as its properties receive exposure to a qualified client base all over the world, and buyers who work with the company are assisted with their purchases through a tightly knit referral system. The company also benefits from its longstanding association with Sotheby’s auction house, engaging in joint marketing opportunities like the new listing of the Hascoe family estate in Greenwich, Conn. Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., is offering the historic oceanfront residence at $42.5 million, while the auction house will sell its furniture and fine and decorative works of art throughout 2011. Under Korte’s leadership, the real estate firm will continue to provide world-class service and set the standard in fine real estate, handling sales for some of the world’s most extraordinary properties in addition to quality listings in a range of prices.

A Century of Success

B

rown Harris Stevens is a New York institution older than the city itself. In 1873, Charles S. Brown opened his real estate appraisal business in Lower Manhattan. When Manhattan was annexed with the other boroughs in 1898, New York City celebrated its first birthday, while Brown’s company, now Brown Harris Stevens, was already marking it 25th year. Since then, Brown Harris Stevens has become known worldwide as the leader in New York City’s residential real estate market. Today, President Hall F. Willkie expertly guides the company. As one of the industry’s most respected and successful executives, Willkie’s leadership—paired with the unmatched experience and knowledge of the firm’s managers and brokers— affords Brown Harris Stevens the top position in one of the world’s most challenging real estate environments. !

A Legacy of Landmarks and Elaine Diratz. They are among the most forwardthinking and experienced real estate professionals in the business.” Founded in 2005, Corcoran Sunshine was the product of a merger between The Sunshine Group and Corcoran Group Marketing, two firms that had each reshaped the New York landscape. Louise Sunshine, founder of the eponymous firm, established an industry unto itself in the mid-1980s by offering residential real estate developers unique expertise in marketing and sales. By providing a visionary perspective on each development and creating relationships throughout the city’s brokerage community, The Sunshine Group was able to achieve unprecedented heights in the luxury residential arena with properties such as the Time Warner Center and One Beacon Court. A discerning clientele was eager for new architectural masterpiece homes akin to works of art, and with help from The Sunshine Group, developers were able to reap value in delivering this new, modern luxury lifestyle. By the mid-1990s, a revolution was happening downtown. Neighborhoods like Tribeca and Soho were transforming from pioneering to the epitome of chic. Keyed into the new downtown pulse, Pamela Liebman, now the C.E.O. of The Corcoran Group, founded Corcoran Group Marketing and began to transform the way an affluent set of New Yorkers lived. Outrageous loft residences on North Moore Street and discreet Crosby Street appealed to the sensibilities of the rich and famous—and those who wished to live like them. “From the very beginning, Corcoran Group Marketing was hungry for a challenge and ready to think differently,” says Liebman. “It’s been 15 years since I founded the group, and that fearlessness and adaptability has served our developers well through the many ups and downs of the market.” By the time the two organizations merged, they had crossed uptown and downtown, envisioning new architectural landmarks and historic conversions, each setting residential precedents and creating homes of enduring value. Today, Mack presides over an unrivaled team of real estate research, design, marketing and sales experts, all dedicated to innovation. Corcoran Sunshine’s collective sales total in excess of $20 billion, $10 billion of which were conducted since Mack assumed the presidency in 2006.

t the helm of New York’s most influential residential real estate marketing and sales firm, Kelly Kennedy Mack has an office with an enviable view of Central Park. Seen from the 39th floor along the coveted 57th Street corridor, the length of the park reveals itself like a breathtaking carpet across the city. It is a view that people pay a substantial amount of money for, as Mack, President of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, knows well. And yet, for her, the most thrilling part of it is not the park—but the view of several prominent developments with which the firm has been a part. “It is a privilege to collaborate with the most prestigious developers on new landmarks,” says Mack. “These buildings transform the skyline and continually redefine the city, and to be a part of it is incredibly exciting.” Mack continues, “I’m inspired every day by Corcoran Sunshine’s leadership team, including James Lansill, Beth Fisher, Tricia Hayes Cole

The New Deal 35th Anniversary

For more than three decades, Corcoran has owned New York City’s real estate market through a powerful commitment to continually innovate the way we buy and sell our homes

C

ontinually at the forefront of innovation, The Corcoran Group has shaped the way New York City real estate firms operate today. Established in 1973, The Corcoran Group was founded during a historic transition in New York City’s real estate market. As New York moved away from a rental dominated market to one of individual ownership, Corcoran seized the opportunity to platform its business. During this time, Corcoran focused its efforts on targeting specific neighborhoods and the luxury market, thus distinguishing itself from its competitors. Today, what truly sets Corcoran apart from the competition is the critical role technology plays in shaping the face of its business. Widely lauded as the real estate leader in technology, Corcoran has embraced technological advancements and trends, adapting them to fit the company’s business model. Fifteen years ago, Corcoran launched one of the first real estate websites, www.corcoran.com. Since Pamela Liebman, President and then, the site has been C.E.O. of The Corcoran Group named the No. 1 luxury real estate website in New York and ranked in the top 1 percent of the most heavily trafficked websites in the world. Corcoran became one of the first residential brokerages to launch an iPhone app and an Android app, making finding a home more convenient, immediate and customized than ever before. The real estate market has grown enormously in value and complexity over the last three decades, and so has Corcoran—now the largest and most successful residential real estate firm in New York City, generating up to $18 billion in total company sales. “We have grown from a group of 30 to 2,200 people, but one thing has never changed,” says President and C.E.O. Pamela Liebman, “and that is the heart and soul of the company—the fact that we are a family, albeit a big one. We have the power of the big and the heart of the small.” ! 126 | AVENUE MAGAZINE · 35th Anniversary 2010
