"Vive Pommes Frites!" Good news for drunken snackers in New York - today Pommes Frites reopens and rejoices in its oily, starchy goodness.

So his 2,550-square-foot apartment is going up for sale for a cool $3.75 mil. If you're looking for some new digs (with a massive walk-in closet), click through to take a tour.
"A once-in-a-generation mind," is how a guest from opening night of Nelson Saiers’s “Inside Wall Street” exhibition describes him to us a few days later. Looking back, walking into the gallery that night was a walk into the fascinating wonderland that is Mr. Saiers's brilliant mind gifted in associative thinking.
