In 2000 we moved next to the legendary Florent Restaurant in the Meat Packing District. Gansevoort Street is a short street where the fictitious Samantha of "Sex and the City" fame lived. It was fun to watch Chris Meloni from "Law and Order" and Sarah Jessica Parker from "SATC" film outside my window. It also was an exciting time for us professionally working on Brice Marden's Duplex loft in the West Village and Tan Dun's townhouse in Chelsea. I still remember being mistaken for the renowned composer and being congratulated for winning the Academy Award for the movie, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". It was a bitter sweet time. I remember stepping out for lunch after 9/11 and not being able to get back into my office after lunch.
