Most of my life I have lived in New York City where I have known and sold wonderful houses. Unable to resist, I recently bought one in Greenwich Village. It is fantastic to live with my husband and our daughter in this wonderful historic neighborhood. I have learned that owning a house can transform one’s life, like a great book or a fine piece of art”.
