Published in 2017 New York Metro Super Lawyers — October 2017

FAVORITE BUILDING  -  Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, a.k.a. One Hanson Place.

BEST RESTAURANT  -  The River Café in Brooklyn Heights.

WEEKEND GETAWAY  -  Always love a Sag Harbor/Hamptons weekend.

FAVORITE QUOTE ABOUT BROOKLYN  -  “It’s ironic that no matter where I go, I meet people from Brooklyn. I’m proud of that heritage. It’s where I’m from, who I am.” — Howard Schultz

FAVORITE HISTORICAL RESIDENT  -  At the moment, Alexander Hamilton.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR OFFICE BESIDES THE PEOPLE  -  The panoramic views of Brooklyn, New York City, New Jersey, the bridges. It exhilarates you.

BEST VIEW  -  Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge—the views are amazing!

FAVORITE PARK  -  Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s Central Park, one of the few remaining indigenous forests in the city.

GO-TO SPORTS VENUE  -  Barclays Center. How did we live without it?

GO-TO ARTS VENUE  -  The Brooklyn Museum.

FAVORITE COFFEESHOP  -  Any Dunkin’ Donuts. I’ll take an almond milk latte anytime.

FAVORITE PIZZA JOINT  -  Lucali in Carroll Gardens: best pizza ever. No reservations, BYOB, always a line. Worth every minute.

MOST FAMOUS RESIDENT  -  Maybe not most famous but my favorite famous resident: Barbra Streisand.

FAVORITE LESSER-KNOWN TOURIST ATTRACTION  -  If you don’t make it to the iconic cyclone roller coaster in Coney Island, I would have to recommend Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

WHERE TO GO AFTER A WIN?  -  The Queen Restaurant: my good luck charm when I’m on trial.

WHERE TO GO AFTER A LOSS?   -  We don’t lose.
