Luxury Places To Entertain Family & Friends

By AP Connolly

There was a time in the past when you had large celebrations planned, it meant making reservations at a favorite restaurant. Space was always at a premium. Today, it’s a far different cry. Call it converting old buildings into lofty spaces—with plenty of room to spare.

Our friends at the Fox Residential Group brought us the best Manhattan has to offer. Contact them at foxresidential.com. Now let’s look.
