The tiles, installed in the lobby of God’s Love We Deliver, serve as a model of how the strengths and resources of the private and public sectors have combined to support God’s Love We Deliver in its critical work.

|The Cinema Society and Nicole Miller co-hosted a screening of the film “Married Life,” the film by director Ira Sachs which stars Patricia Clarkson, Chris Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Pierce Brosnan. The film is a clever and poignant look at marriage and adultery and relationships in the 1940s, in the days when it was never spoken of except when it was about movie stars.
The stars -- Clarkson, Cooper, McAdams and Sachs – also joined Cinema Society founder Andrew Saffir and Ms. Miller for the screening at the Tribeca Cinemas. There was a party which followed in the Penthouse of the Soho Grand Hotel.
Among those attending were Morgan Freeman, Stanley Tucci, Helena Christensen, Lindsay Price (“Lipstick Jungle”), John Schneider, Judd Hirsch, Candace Bushnell and Charles Askegard, Beth Ostrosky, Milena Govich (“Law & Order,” “K-Ville”), Zuleikha Robinson (“New Amsterdam”), Neil Burger (director, “The Illusionist”), Ben Shenkman, Hana Soukupova, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Irina Pantaeva, Sandra Nilsson, Alexandra Kerry, Daniel Benedict, Valesca Guerrand-Hermes, Olivia Palermo, Meredith Melling-Burke, Debbie Bancroft, Tiffany Dubin, Lucy Sykes and Euan Rellie, Sessa von Richthofen, Ghislaine Maxwell, Jamee and Peter Gregory, Jerry Della Femina and Judy Licht, Helen and Tim Schifter, and Sony Pictures Classics’ Tom Bernard and Michael Barker.
|James McBride and Lynn Wyatt hosted a launch party for Assouline’s new book “The Carlyle,” held in the Empire Suite of the posh Upper East Side hostelry.|
|Long before the Upper East Side came into its own there was a Carlyle. In 1929 when Walter P. Chrysler was watching the finishing touches put on his building, and John Jacob Raskob broke ground for the Empire State Building, uptown on East 76th Street, amidst both farmhouses and townhouses, rose a haven for high society, artists, royalty and world leaders.|
|Michael Bolla & The Accompanied Literary Society presented Forward: Readings by Arnon Grunberg and Victoria Redel. Guests joined Emmy Award-winning author and architect James Sanders for an introduction to Jewish New York past, and celebrated two authors looking forward with the launch of The Jewish Messiah and The Border of Truth. There was a live klezmer band, flowing cocktails, and dancing against the lights of Lower Manhattan all at the Forward Building Penthouse.
