Social Circle ’Round Again
THE New York social whirl is back to full force.  Hurricane Isabel is nothing compared to the social whirlwind of New York now that the glitterati season is back in full force – with 10-20-30 events every evening, and it gets better as we get deeper into the season.  So, here's a few of the best.

Oasis In The City

HE 150th celebration of Central Park: There has been an almost endless celebration of the greatest city oasis in the world.  Larger than Monaco, visited by some 12 million people very year, everyone was primed to celebrate.

The most glam event were the 150 dinners circling the park, which raised some $1.5 million (where else in the world would this happen?).

As the parties were private, we have no pix, but we can celebrate with the art exhibition created by Denise and Larry Wohl to celebrate the talented photographs daughter Joselyn made over her lifetime.

As a lifelong New Yorker, Joselyn has a special perspective on the grandeur, majesty and joy of the Park.  Joined by some of the world's most famous photographers, including our own Rob Rich, it was an evening of magic.
