    The Woolworth building and the Library Bar at the Lanesborough Hotel in London — the city’s ritziest hotel

    1. Leave the One57 and 432 Park Avenue penthouses to foreign billionaires; the Woolworth building’s penthouse is what real New Yorkers drool over.

    2. In yet another way rich people have it better than everyone else, the wealthy are using their extensive wine collections as collateral for cash loans. 

    3. Cognac from 1770 that goes for £6,500 pounds (about $10,000) PER SHOT and cigars by Castro’s personal roller: a tour of London’s most expensive hotel.

    Richard Kirschenbaum and his home

    From Luxury Listings NYC: Advertising mogul and satirist of the super rich, Richard Kirshenbaum, 54, now finds himself under the white-hot glare of the media spotlight, dodging barbs and scooping up accolades.

    With the publication of his latest book, “Isn’t That Rich? Life Among the 1%,” “Kirshenbaum,” a mouthful of a name, is seemingly on the tip of every blue-blooded tongue. The collection of stories lampoons real-life characters that haunt the co-ops of Park Avenue — when they aren’t poolside in the Hamptons or St. Barts. [more]

    Like summer, the new issue of Luxury Listings NYC proves well worth the wait, with its focus on families, fun and incredible finds in our own backyard!

    Raising kids in style in Manhattan is no mean feat. That’s why we turned to husband-and-wife design team and HGTV stars, Rob and Cortney Novogratz. Our cover story takes you inside the colorful, playful home the duo shares with their seven (!) kids – a blueprint for fabulous family living in NYC. And in “Kidding Around,” we explore how Manhattan designers create children’s rooms that are stylish and super fun.

    “Hamptons Trophies,” features a rundown of the most expensive homes in the Hamptons and on the North Fork. And, there’s more dazzle on tap in “Hidden Gems,” as we take you on a visit to the country’s largest diamond factory – in Midtown Manhattan!

    An issue of LLNYC wouldn’t be complete without “Luxe Life.” This month’s must-haves include cool outdoor items for the hot summer months. And, check out the latest party photos from the biggest NYC awards and galas in “Scene/Seen.”

    An informed reader set LLNYC straight on the finer points of table setting

    From Luxury Listings NYC: In an elegant handwritten letter on 740 Park Avenue stationary, a “concerned housekeeper” made us aware that our table setting skills were not quite up  to snuff. We brought out the saucer too soon, embarrassed ourselves with mismatched silver and completely misunderstood the finer points of eating artichokes.

    Check out the full letter critiquing a highly questionable illustration in our most recent print issue here.

    Margaret Anne Williams and Geoffrey Zakarian in their office

    From Luxury Listings NYC: It may be hard to remember, but there was a time not long ago when fine dining options in New York City weren’t unlimited. Back then, there were just a handful of noteworthy, foreign-born chefs, cooking in a few truly good restaurants. Diners may or may not have known the chef’s name. How quaint.

    Today, of course, the cult of celebrity has descended upon the chef and New York City’s restaurant dining scene has seen an explosion of both talent and choice. Consider the experience of chef, restaurateur and reality TV star Geoffrey Zakarian, one of the lions to emerge from the city’s restaurant boom.

    From Luxury Listings NYC: This is Margaret Thatcher in the bathtub,” said the artist Edwina Sandys, pointing to one of her early paintings while seated in her sprawl- ing Soho loft.
