About the Book

This is a gossipy account of billionaires, movie stars, and corporate giants and the white-gloved, million-dollar penthouse apartments they inhabit.¬†High Rise Low Down¬†divulges the lifestyles of the rich, famous, and wildly successful people who are able to afford such dwellings, going inside these private realms. In addition, the authors reveal what lies behind the guarded portals of Manhattan’s most aristocratic apartment houses. Each chapter describes the culture, history, tone, and tenor of each of the 23 featured buildings, revealing the motivations of snobbish co-op boards that screen applicants. Also included are the details of the selection process, with heartbreaking social, racial, and political stories of prejudice and privilege, where only the elite are accepted and the majority of applicants are blackballed from certain buildings. This book can serve as a blueprint for how to handle the application process, supplying advice on whom to ask for letters of recommendation, what to wear to the co-op interview, how much to reveal to the board, and much more.
