My Offices at the Starrett-Lehigh Building

Readers of my blog seem to really enjoy the behind-the-scenes tours
that are posted from time to time.  I thought it would be fun to show
you some of what goes on at my offices located in the landmark
Starrett-Lehigh building overlooking the Hudson River in the Chelsea
section of Manhattan.  Dating from 1932, this amazing and massive
structure occupies an entire city block and was constructed so that
freight trains and trucks could enter the vast ground-floor freight
yard to load and unload freight for the businesses located in the
floors above.  Natural light floods each floor through large,
continuous bands of windows.  With the eventual decline of New York
industry, and the freight lines long since gone, the upper floors have
been reconfigured to house many new businesses, including my own up on
the ninth floor.  This is where much design and creating work is done,
where many photo and television shoots take place, and where the
Internet Department is located.  It’s a most inspiring place to work!
Visit my blog later this week to see more photos!   


This is my corner office facing north and west.  I really love this
simple and open space.  Here I am with my executive assistant, Julia
Eisemann going over about 1,000 different things!

This is the west view from my office – beautiful sunsets – beautiful
Hudson River.  That’s New Jersey across the way, where I was born and
raised.  Nutley is just a 15 minute drive._o7j2283_2
