As previously discussed, Goldman Sachs MD Richard Kimball is known for throwing great parties. And at the request of his firm for employees to keep a low profile, he's taken care to keep his bashes, private, whether they're topless pool parties in the Hamptons or naked themed get-togethers in the elevator. Still, the stiffs in his building at 99 Jane Street decided they were too good for the Kimballer and have not renewed his lease, which ends on Halloween. Luckily, Rick has found a new home, not run by buzz kills.

After touring many hot properties, new Knick Amar’e Stoudemire has scored a coveted $37,500-a-month, five-bedroom penthouse rental in the West Village. The condo, once listed for sale at $16.5 million, is 4,500 square feet inside, with another 4,500 square feet of terrace space. Stoudemire, we hear, loves the high ceilings and river views. Stoudemire nabbed the plush pad after the current tenant’s lease wasn’t renewed, says broker Michael Bolla. That tenant is Goldman Sachs exec Richard Kimball Jr., a divorced dad whose ex-wife is Holly Peterson, author of “The Manny” and daughter of billionaire Pete Peterson....Kimball he has found a new place and that Stoudemire is slated to move into the penthouse in January. “Kimball found another place to live,” one source says. “It wasn’t hard to do. He has a lot of money.”

Greg Smith: Goldman Sachs Interns Taught Harsh But Important Lessons By Demanding But Affable Managing Directors

Lesson 1, according the first chapter of Why I Left Goldman Sachs to leak online: the difference between a sandwich and a salad. You needed to be very entrepreneurial and creative. Adding value as an intern often began with getting coffee for the desk every day; frequently, interns also did breakfast and lunch runs. You would literally take a pen and pad and go around to the ten or fifteen people on the desk and take everyone's order. It's a strange concept, but Wall Street looks at attention to detail as an indicator of how people are going to do in their job. If a kid keeps messing up the lunch order, he's probably going to mess up something else down the line. I remember one managing director-- a few years after I'd started working at the firm-- who was very sensitive about his lunch orders. He didn't eat onion or certain other things. One day he asked an intern for a cheddar cheese sandwich, and the kid came back with a cheddar cheese salad. The kid handed it to him so proudly: "Here's your cheddar cheese salad." I was sitting next to the MD, so I remember the incident well. He opened the container, looked at the salad, looked up at the kid, closed the container, and threw it in the trash. It was a bit harsh, but it was also a teaching moment. The managing director joked about it with the kid afterward; he didn't make a big deal about it. The lesson was learned.

Moody's Attempts To Ruin Dick Handler's Good Time

Until recently, being chief executive officer of Jefferies was an exercise in getting shit on. As the man in charge for the last 13 years, Richard Handler has had to put up with a lot of hurtful remarks that, while nothing to the person tossing them off, undoubtedly stung quite badly. "Third-tier bank." Place "I wouldn't let my maid's kid work." "Poor man's Morgan Keegan." So you can imagine that after a string of victories over the last several months that included getting involved in the slaughterhouse business and paying all-cash bonuses unlike some people, Handler and Co. would be feeling pretty good about themselves and that after announcing to the world they were getting paid more this year than their counterparts at big kid banks, they'd be feeling REALLY good about themselves. That payday, however, did not go over well when input into Moody's proprietary just-make-it-up credit-rating model, and now Handler's plan to gather everyone up to watch as the board shoots his compensation out of a tee-shirt gun in hundred dollar bills is completely ruined.
