Why do you live in NYC? Because I love its addictive energy, both positive and negative and it's irresistible ability to stimulate us in every fact of live imaginable.

If you had one day left to live in NYC what would you do? Stroll through Grand Central Station, stop and dine at the Oyster Bar, make my way to Central Park, and then over to the Hudson River, jump in and take a swim.
What is your favorite work of art? It is difficult to have a "favorite" anything as there are to many to choose from. For what it's worth... Picasso "Figures on a Beach," 1931, Rothko, "No. 14," 1960, Seurat's "Les Poseuses," 1888
