Pocket squares bulged and heels clicked last week at a soiree celebrating Luxury Listings NYC recent cover story profile of NY1 society reporter George Whipple and his Columbus Circle penthouse.
In his characteristically foppish style, Whipple arrived dressed in a brightly patterned silk scarf tied like a cravat into his overcoat and a Homburg hat.
Topcoat securely on its hanger, Whipple posed for photos with guests from the media, real estate and financial industries, as a camera crew from NY1 captured the gathering.
The evening went down in a full-floor model unit at Tribeca’s 88 Franklin Street. Brokers and potential buyers poked their nose around every corner of the 4,500-square-foot, five-bedroom loft apartment, which is on the market for $8 million with Platinum Properties’ Daniel Hedaya, Cash Bernard and Teresa Stephenson.
Hovering near the crowded bar, Vanity Fair celebrity interviewer George Wayne — armed with a vodka and a conspicuously retro CD Walkman — chatted with The Real Deal’s Editor-in-Chief Stuart Elliot.
As the evening waned, spirited guests continued to mingle long after the music was silenced and the lights dimmed.
