I'm the one who helped crash through Victor Maitland's window, who helped disable an unmarked unit with a banana, who helped lured Taggart and Rosemont into a gross dereliction of duty at a strip tease establishment, and who helped ruin the buffet at the Harrow Club.

Save Rizzoli: “Since 1985, Manhattan’s Rizzoli Bookstore has occupied a spectacular six-story limestone townhouse on Fifty-Seventh Street—their Web site aptly goes in for a bit of self-congratulation, touting the “cast iron chandeliers, ornately decorated vaulting, and a luminous Diocletian window.” You can learn more about the history of the building here. It’s the sort of place that inspires breathless exaltation in book lovers, or even merely book likers; if you were to publish a magazine of bookseller porn, Rizzoli would be the centerfold. Put more baldly, it’s magical.
Alas, in a plot turn that seems ripped from a bad movie, realtors have designs on the building—they want to demolish it and build a high-rise.”
