An inside account of the high-stakes world of Manhattan residential real estate. Gaines takes us from New York's most expensive condominiums and co-ops to the offices of its most powerful real estate brokers to reveal the displays of ego, bad behavior, and status hunger that come into play when the best addresses in the city are on the line. Gaines weaves a gossipy tapestry of brokers, buyers, co-op boards, and eccentric landlords and tells of the apartment hunting and renovating adventures of celebrities. Here, too, is a chronicle of the changes in Manhattan's residential skyline, from the slums of the nineteenth century to the advent of the luxury building. Gaines describes how living in boxes stacked on boxes came to be seen as the ultimate in status.--From publisher description
Fool's paradise : players, poseurs, and the culture of excess in South Beach by Steven S Gaines( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revealing profile of the Miami Beach no one knows--a tale of fabulous excess, thwarted power, and rekindled lives. Created from a mix of swampland and dredged-up barrier reef, Miami Beach has always been one part drifter-mecca and one part fantasyland, simultaneously a catch basin for con men, fast-talk artists, and shameless self-promoters, and a Shangri-La for sun worshippers and hardcore hedonists. In Miami Beach it's often said that "if you're not indicted you're not invited." But the city's mad, fascinating complexity resists easy stereotyping. This is more than just a present-day profile of a dark Eden: Gaines journeys back into the city's social and cultural history, unearthing stories of the resort's past that are every bit as absorbing--and jaw-dropping--as those of its present.--From publisher description

One of these things first by Steven S Gaines( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From New York Times-bestselling author Steven Gaines comes a wry and touching memoir of his trials as a gay teen at the famed Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic. One of These Things First is a poignant reminiscence of a fifteen-year-old gay Jewish boy's unexpected trajectory from a life behind a rack of dresses in his grandmother's Brooklyn bra-and-girdle store to Manhattan's infamous Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic, whose alumni includes writers, poets, and madmen, as well as Marilyn Monroe and bestselling author Steven Gaines. With a gimlet eye and a true gift for storytelling, Gaines captures his childhood shtetl in Brooklyn, and all its drama and secrets, like an Edward Hopper tableau: his philandering grandfather with his fleet of Cadillacs and Corvettes; a giant, empty movie theater, his portal to the outside world; a shirtless teenage boy pushing a lawnmower; and a pair of tormenting bullies whose taunts drive Gaines to a suicide attempt. Gaines also takes the reader behind the walls of Payne Whitney--the?Harvard of psychiatric clinics,? as Time magazine called it--populated by a captivating group of neurasthenics who affect his life in unexpected ways. The cast of characters includes a famous Broadway producer who becomes his unlikely mentor; an elegant woman who claims to be the ex-mistress of newly elected president John F. Kennedy; a snooty, suicidal architect; and a seductive young contessa. At the center of the story is a brilliant young psychiatrist who promises to cure a young boy of his homosexuality and give him the normalcy he so longs for. For readers who love stories of self-transformation, One of These Things First is a fascinating memoir in the vain of Susanna Kaysen's Girl, Interrupted and Augusten Burroughs's Running with Scissors. With its novelistic texture and unflagging narrative, this book is destined to become one of the great, indelible works of the memoir genre
