We are excited to present this brand-new, totally gut-renovated pre-war two-bedroom top-floor home. An oasis of calm, it is peaceful and bright, with open South and West exposures, city views and an efficient and gracious layout. The entry foyer leads to a spacious and light living-dining room and windowed eat-in kitchen, with angled city views. Beyond the living room, a separate hallway leads to the two sun-flooded bedrooms with open views, and one and one half beautifully finished baths. There are high ceilings, tall windows, hardwood floors, recessed lighting throughout the living areas, and three closets. The kitchen has granite counters, lovely wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher.

222 East 82nd Street is a neighborly, well-run coop with extraordinarily low monthly maintenance fees, doormen from 11 AM to 7 PM, recently renovated lobby and hallways, laundry facilities, bike room, and storage room. There is also a beautiful roof deck. Small pets are welcomed, and 80% financing is permitted. Guarantors, co-purchasers and pieds-a-terre are allowed on a case-by-case basis. The building is situated on a lovely block in the heart of the Upper East Side, close to Central Park, and very convenient to transportation, including express subways (one block to Second Avenue subway, three blocks to Lex), surrounded by great restaurants, shopping, schools, culture, and nightlife.

Asking price $1,100,000

Monthly maintenance $1,360

Council for Canadian American Relations (CCAR) Gala 2017


Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney

Two weeks ago I attended the gala with my husband Stanley, who is the Secretary of the organization, at the Metropolitan Club.  This event marked Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation.  Honorees were the American artist Frank Stella, filmmaker Norman Jewison (originally from Canada), and Hilary Weston, a Canadian businesswoman and former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.  Former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney also spoke and was quite entertaining.  CCAR is an organization whose purpose is to foster and encourage awareness, understanding and appreciation between the peoples of Canada and the United States through the arts.


The Hon. Hilary Weston

We were seated at a table of Americans and Canadians, and had lots of interesting conversation.
