Park Avenue benefit bashes aren't always so fun, but get prepared to laugh at ArtsConnection's 2016 Celebration this May.

While Donald Trump basks in the golden glory of his $100 million penthouse in New York City, his biggest democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, lives a relatively humble life, somehow surviving in an 11-room colonial worth only $1.7 million. How does she do it? She and former President Bill Clinton purchased the 5,300-square-foot home at 15 Old House Lane in Chappaqua, New York back in 1999 (you know, so she could claim residence as a New York senator), and although they've apparently been looking to upgrade, still come back here when they're not on the campaign trail.
Peddlers of all things nautical-chic (Jenna Lyons is basically our modern day equivalent of a pants wearing, yar-spouting Katharine Hepburn after all), J. Crew's summer kick off could not have had a better locale than everyone's favorite champagne sipping, oyster shucking schooner, Grand Banks. A more than fashionable crowd teetered their heeled selves down the comically steep on-ramp to enjoy an evening of views - from the sunset and city skyline to, the far more aesthetically pleasing, J. Crew's swim collection.
New season, new things! We've all been to our favorite stores, excited to spruce up our street style, but don't forget about your home's style. After a long exhausting day, all you want to do is get back home and curl up in bed with your favorite food and Netflix.

Here are 10 ways to brighten up your home this season.
Oh, fuckbuddies. Can't date them, can't date without them. We don't know about you, but when it comes to having someone in our life who is essentially just a human vibrator, being seen out in public with them, or even holding a whole conversation with them, just seems impossible. While that 2 am booty call is an absolutely necessary part of being a single youngin' in New York, they are, sorry to say, just a placeholder until you find someone you actually like.
Central Park may have always been your favorite picnic spot, but you didn't know about the secret garden that has been closed to the public since the 1930s. Lucky for us, the Manhattan oasis is reopening to the public this summer, clearing the path for what is sure to be the most idyllic picnic perch ever. So how should you make the most of boozing-in-the-grass season? Glad you asked...
Ask any twenty-something if they feel totally secure about where they're going in life and prepared to get a wishy-washy answer. When you turn 20 you get so excited that you are no longer a teenager but hit 23 and it's like you're suddenly in no man's land. Lost, insecure, feeling like you're going nowhere anytime soon. Thank goodness for adults who have written books that can motivate you to get your life back together.
There is nothing worse than that pit in your stomach telling you that you should absolutely bail on your date. Unless you have a really good excuse, it is usually poor form to cancel last minute. Luckily we've come up with some slightly bitchy but totally foolproof ways to get you out of that date without any question or hassle from that unfortunate lad you're standing up. Let's just hope you don't jinx yourself by telling this little white lie...
The real estate mogul, IRL television villain, and presumptive GOP nominee for president, Donald Trump lives like a king. Who would have guessed? 58 stories above New York City, Donald, Melania, and Barron Trump reside in the penthouse apartment of Trump Tower, located at 725 Fifth Avenue. Valued at $100 million, the three-floor mansion in the sky is decorated with all of the over-the-top 18th century French embellishments you'd expect, including Louis XIV chairs and golden cherubs.
