I’ve always thought of what it would be like to dine here in the Four Seasons heyday. Jackie Kennedy lunching when she was a book editor, Philip Johnson in the Grill Room, gossip columnist Liz Smith, Andy Warhol… and the power lunches.. very Mad Menesque.
It was designed in 1959 by Philip Johnson for Mies van der Rohe’s landmark Seagram building on Park Avenue in Manhattan.
The furniture, tableware and objects will be offered at auction by Wright Auction House in an extraordinary one day event to take place in the original interior. Featuring approximately 500 lots, the sale will include works by Mies van der Rohe and Hans Wegner as well as custom designs by Philip Johnson and special-ordered Knoll furniture. The tableware and cookware designed by L. Garth and Ada Louise Huxtable will also be offered.
See you there!
This is long overdue.. countless times I’ve been asked about new york getaways. This is my favorite. It is owned by my friend Tim (an incredible designer) so you know every need is accounted for and every detail is thought out stylishly, of course.
It is located in hurley, new york – less than 2 hours from manhattan. It is so worth it! You can go for just a weekend or escape during the week to breathe that fresh air…re-claim your inner laura ingalls wilder or just revel in the solitude and relax.
It has a funky 70’s bohemian vibe – a huge vinyl collection with a great sound system, a breakfast porch, outdoor seating with a gas grill.. upstairs and downstairs sleeping areas, even a writing nook!
It’s very close to historic Kingston with it’s quaint stone houses, old dutch church and cemetery, a weekend farmer’s market.. what more could you ask for? Groovy ambiance included free of charge.

We attended a wonderful presentation the other night for “the last film festival”. The director, linda yellen put together an amazing cast and crew to tell this story.
Now nearing the fifth anniversary of Dennis’ death, they would like to release the film to the public. They started a kick starter campaign to help with post production:
“the last film festival” finds hopper starring alongside jacqueline bisset, joseph cross, jobeth williams, donnell rawlings, chris kattan and leelee sobieski.
here are some links to the press coverage:
You can donate anything from $1 to $10,000 (which would get your name in lights as a co-producer of the film and credits in IMDB)
come on…. you know you are imagining your name in the film credits right now!
