Recently in mid-March The New York Observer Newspaper launched their new monthly magazine, NYO Magazine.  It is slick and elegant and truly luxurious.  Bravos to Piers Parlet (Creative Director), Rachel Morgan (Senior Editor), Ivylise Simones (Creative Director), Robyn Weiss (Publisher) and of course, Jared Kushner (Publisher - Observer Media Group).

The launch party was held at the Aldyn, a luxury complex by the Extell Development Comp., and is on Riverside Boulevard in the W.60's overlooking the Hudson River. 
It has more than 40,000 sq. feet of amenities including
La Palestra, an uber athletes club and Spa that features a
75 ft. indoor pool, a rock climbing wall, a basketball court,
a squash court, a bowling alley and a state of the art gym.  This March 2011 premier issue has Benjamin Millepied, the N.Y.C. Ballet choreography director, on the cover.  He trained and choreographed Natalie Portman in her Academy Award winning "Best Actress" role in the "Black Swan".  They are engaged and are expecting a child this year.

The party was well attended by the top of the N.Y.C. corporate community with NY Observer publisher, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in attendance.  Guests included Albert Maysles*, the legendary documentary film maker of such classics as the Beatles in '64, the Rolling Stones in '69 and "Grey Gardens" in '76,  Patricia Watt, theater producer on Broadway and London and producer of the annual Astaire Awards** in N.Y.C. which honors the best dance and choreography on Broadway and Film.  There will be a private nomination announcement reception Thursday,
April 26th at the sumptuous Firebird Restaurant on Restaurant Row (it is one of Natalie Portman's favorite restaurants), followed with The Astaire Awards Gala on Sunday, May 15 at N.Y.C.'s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

Other guests included Hamptons mega-builder, Richard Novak, Don Gewelke, owner of the Hamptons' Galerie Bel Age, Sara Johnson, actress and theater producer, Kristofer Ambrose***, composer and singer, who recently created the song "Esperanza" (Hope) for the 33 chilean miners who were trapped under the earth for 69 days, Susan Rush, curator and corporate art consultant, Rachel Koblic of the American Sommelier Society and Paul Kornblueh, Sales Executive at NY Observer.

Also attending were Elizabeth Spiers, Joan Barlland, George Oliphant, Sloane Crosley, John Willey, Hilary and Wilbur Ross, Michele Gerber Klein and Tristan de Terves.

For NYO Magazine it is full speed ahead in N.Y.C. and on to the Hamptons ... Accelerando! 

"On with the dance!  Let joy be unconfined,
no sleep 'till morn, when youth and pleasure meet to chase the glowing hours with flying feet." 

Lord Byron (1828).
