Nineteen-year-olds with limitless cash. Live chickens in the Limelight. Contemporary art salons on the Upper West Side. Families fighting for fortunes in the post-Soviet fallout. Where else but in NYC, or in Luxury Listings NYC?

The latest issue of LLNYC, now available online, is our biggest yet. In our cover story, we talk with the amiable actress Anna Anissimova, an heiress to one of Russia’s greatest fortunes. She recalls tanks on the streets of Moscow before she moved to NYC as a 6-year-old. As a teenage party girl with a lust for tony real estate, she became fodder for the tabloids. Today, as a wife, mother and working actress, she lives by the law of noblesse oblige.

We also went into the home of model and TV actress Michele Hicks, who lived through the height of the 1990s club scene, to become a ubiquitous, and extremely chic, feature on hit crime dramas. She is currently on TNT’s “Public Morals.” Check out the spread here.

In Luxe Life, we present an ultra-specific gift guide for the “boyfriend with restless leg syndrome,” your “favorite classics professor” and your “cousin who returns everything.” And to ease the requisite stress of the holiday season – whether you need a helicopter in an instant or a superior date — we rank the best luxury phone apps out there.

Prefer to dodge the upcoming inclement weather? (We all do.) Then check out our appraisal of the most expensive mansions in South Florida and the Caribbean.

Finally, don’t forget to check out our round up of the season’s best party pics and our neighborhood stories, which this issue features: an interview with celebrity chef Michael White; a look at an apartment-turned-gallery on the UWS; a stroll through Chelsea with supermodel Frederique van der Wal; and a hilarious review of a new upscale Soho deli by a staunchly opinionated Jewish grandmother.
