The front doors to 214 Lafayette St in the village are funky pieces of plywood painted black with silver hinges holding them in place. Go past those doors and you are in a 13,000 square foot 5-story house requit with an indoor pool full of nubiles swimming in synchronization. A Nissan GT-R sit’s in the foyer, and if you want to venture up to the fifth floor you can hang out around the fire pit and drink whiskey from Kentucky, or New York City, on the 900 square foot rooftop with a skyline view of Manhattan.
The big draw after a full day of unveils, including the Nissan Murano, was the great food made by one of New York’s finest chefs, and one of the stars of the FoodNetwork TV show, Chopped, Marc Murphy. Murphy was taking pictures with anyone that asked and chatting with everyone.
