Making An Entrance

Area on Hudson was one of New York’s most popular nightclubs in the 80s.

Every night hundreds of people waited beyond the velvet ropes for entrance.

Admission wasn’t a given.

But in this photo the baldish man in the foreground was headed to the bar to order a cognac and coke. It was his drink. I know, because later Jack Lesko was part-owner with Scottie Taylor at the Milk Bar. He loved the nightlife.

“Ah, the magic of Studio.”

He was a little magic himself and I was glad to hear recently from a diamond client that Jack had survived a bout with the Big C.

“Give him my best.”

And I meant it.

We are the nightlife.
