The UES Diet: No Food, Nice Apartment

New, 2 comments

Following up on yesterday's report that claimed Manhattan is the skinniest county in New York State, the Times speaks to some spindly citizens about their motivation: "'My mom always says, The smaller the dress size, the larger the apartment,' said one lifelong Upper East Sider, who said she did not want to be named because she disapproves of the maxim. What better place to test that hypothesis than the Exhale gym and spa, looking out on Madison Avenue from the banklike Carlyle Gallery building. (As if to prove the point, the gym sits directly above the Douglas Elliman real estate office advertising a 'Trophy Mansion Townhouse' for $22 million.)" [NYT]
