Margo Catsimatidis welcomes us into an apartment that spans the entire floor of a classic Fifth Avenue building. The apartment is cozily reminiscent of a home that has been nurtured by a family for generations. Knick-knacks and framed photographs line the walls and daintily stand atop a grand piano as well as next to rows upon rows of encyclopedias on bookshelves. His two children are featured in most.  As we wait for John, Margo offers us snacks and shares tidbits of the couple’s days on the campaign trail.

To many, Bermuda is the “Jewel of the Atlantic.” With pink sandy beaches, limestone cliffs and turquoise-colored water, it makes for the perfect vacation getaway. Because the sun and Gulf warm the atmosphere, Bermuda is free from the dreaded tropical heat. A rich and diverse culture is evident with West Africa and West Indies slave ancestors, English colonialists, Irish rovers and Portuguese seafarers. You can experience all that Bermuda has to offer when you book your stay at The Reefs Resort & Club.

One of my favorite games growing up was Word Association. Everyone knows the rules and they hardly bear repeating. I think of myself as quite good at the game so it came as a surprise to me during my visit at Sedona, Arizona the word most frequently on the tips of everyone’s tongue and most linked to this beautiful city is vortex. Everywhere I went – a national park, canoeing, hiking and even when I went out to eat, the residents were enthralled with the idea of positive energy.

Central Park’s real estate dominance is known worldwide; the neighborhoods surrounding this legendary park supply luxurious residential properties with price tags surpassing the $20 million mark.  Today, a trophy penthouse on Fifth Avenue is on the market for an astonishing $125 million. These high-priced trophy residences are fixtures in the luxury real estate market and bold-faced buyers are willing to pay exorbitant prices for residences with panoramic views of Central Park.
