    Area Man Threatens To Out-Toilet Stevie Cohen

    Trouble in hedge fund land. Greenwich residents are terrified that would-be new neighbor, Russian millionaire Valery Kogan, will make them look bad (read: poor) by building a proposed 54,000 square foot mansion with two wings, “extensive” subterranean space, and room for up to 300 guests, which will clearly dwarf their own homes, relative shacks compared […]

    Report from the Greenwich Bureau

    More from Nina Munk’s Greenwich piece in the July issue of Vanity Fair (on newsstands next week). The setup: With its undisturbed views of Long Island Sound and a comfortable commute to Manhattan, Greenwich has long attracted men with brand-new money. A few months ago, one of the main pieces of the original Simmons estate […]

    Tearing Down Greenwich

    To the left is a picture of the man identified by Vanity Fair as the Patient Zero of hedge fund violence against Greenwich architecture.
