What is your quintessential NY moment?

There are so many moments that I wouldn't know where to start. That is what is so fabulous about New York. For starters-------the birth of my son, at what was, New York Cornell Hospital on York Ave.----------My marriage at St. Andrews Dune Church in Southampton, L.I., New York. My careers and the incredible people that I met. New York brought me up. The many, many runways that I walked down. The designers, the garment center, the agencies, Revlon, Estee Lauder, Conte' Nast, Southampton!, taxis, restaurants, food, parties, energy (where did it come from?) La Guardia, JFK. Moments that are now wonderful memories.

What do you and don't you miss about NY?

I miss all that I wrote above. Of coarse, you have to be young or filty rich to live in New York City. I wouldn't miss a summer in New York. I can still feel the hot pavement under my feet and the hot exhaust that a bus leaves in your face as it pulls away from the curb. The stress of trying to make it through traffic so that you can be on time. The dirt. The weather when it is pouring. I miss a fabulous snowstorm and Central Park is a winter wonderland. I miss Fall in New York and Spring. I miss the fashions. I miss the restaurants. I miss the intelligence and culture. I miss the sophistication. Maybe it has been awhile and I can't remember things that I don't miss.

What is your favorite thing to do when you are in NY?

Walk the streets. Stay at the "Yale Club". See an old freind. Reminesse. Go back to old haunts that are still there. ------"The River Cafe'" -----the "Oyster Bar" in Grand Central. See at play. Go to the Met.

How often do you make it back to visit NY?

I use to go about four times a year; but, I am lucky to go once a year. I am planning to go this November.

What part of NY are you from?

Manhattan.
