what NY socialites do in 10021

A New York Socialite is brought up to be cultured, educated and to love and be passionate about the arts. There is no greater appreciation than support and patronage of museums. While it does not always require a wing be named after a socialite family, love of art can be expressed in a multitude of ways. This blog is an expression for the love of art in New York Museums. You can even call it a passion.
