Busy New York days and nights

After JH got his shots we headed uptown to the Museum of the City of New York at 103rd Street and Fifth Avenue, just to get some shots of scene, the UES version of “New York After Dark.” This is the world of The Director's Council of the Museum. They're a crew that is always well turned out, the once-upon-a-time junior crowd that has gained seniority and turned up the heat in supporting the museum. The evening was sponsored by Graff, the purveyors of the world's most astonishing diamonds, and J. Mendel. This is one of the first parties of the autumn season and for a lot of the guests it was a kind of first back-home-for-school (for their kids now) reunion.

Chairmen for the evening were Sara Ayres, Phoebe Gubelmann, Heather Mnuchin, Valesca Guerrand-Hermes, Celerie Kemble, Jill Roosevelt, Kristina Stewart Ward, and Eleanor Ylvisaker.
