For those wanting a dose of consumer-oriented real estate news — especially those on the market for a new luxe home in the city — head to LLNYC.com to check out our newest issue.

Our cover story profiles former “Real Housewives of New York City” star Jill Zarin and her Tiffany-inspired condo. Her family affectionately refers to the spread as “Base Camp,” and Zarin herself uses the home for multiple purposes: Her current business ventures, photo shoots and, most of all, for relaxation. “What people don’t know about me is I’m a little bit of a hermit,” she tells us. “People think I’m out all the time. I’m not.”

We also take a look at the city’s super-luxury market — specifically, what buyers can really get for their money when buying a NYC home. What are the main differences between homes priced at $2.5 million, $5 million, $10 million, $20 million and $40 million — more privacy, greater space or just bragging rights?

Heading out to the Hamptons, we visit interior designer Joe Nahem at his waterfront Amagansett home. Nahem’s work has landed him on numerous “Best” lists, including the prestigious Architectural Digest’s AD100, and it truly shows inside his colorful, art-filled retreat.

In addition, we round up the latest smart-home technology — perfect for the space-starved New Yorker; we visit Rarities, an exclusive Midtown club where some spirits are six figures a pour, and uncover much more neighborhood and real estate news.

Enjoy! — Zachary Kussin
