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.
