From Luxury Listings NYCOnly a handful of noteworthy football players can say they won a Super Bowl championship as their last game. The legendary Michael Strahan is one of them. Even fewer athletes have built such a demanding second career in the public eye. Few would even want to after years of bone-crushing collisions on the field. Strahan talked to Luxury Listings NYC about some of the newest ventures he is adding to his schedule, including his upcoming hosting gig on “$100,000 Pyramid.”

We also tried to keep up with celebrated non-fiction writer Gay Talese at a dinner party. The octogenarian author is enjoying a new burst of renown thanks to the 50th anniversary of his pioneering profile of Frank Sinatra. We were also invited back to his townhouse to check out his meticulous notes and paraphernalia from a lifetime spent interviewing notable personalities. [more]
