RESTAURANTS: Au Cheval Burger Lands in Tribeca It’s a good time to be a burger fan in NYC: Tribeca welcomes its own location of Au Cheval, an incredibly popular Chicago diner whose burger has ascended to national acclaim. Just opened at 33 Cortlandt Alley, the modernized diner is destined to draw lines down the block — in Chicago, it’s one of the toughest restaurants to get into, with diners waiting hours to get their hands on that burger. It’s a simple American classic, made of two griddled four-ounce patties with American cheese, dijonnaise, and pickles on a toasted bun. Some say it’s the best in the country, I'd argue in favor of Chumley's but have yet to try this beautiful specimen. CLICK HERE to check it out.
ART: Basquiat at the Brant Foundation The new Brant Foundation Art Study Center in the East Village is located in the 16,000-square-foot building at 421 East 6th Street (between First Avenue and Avenue A). With four floors of exhibit space covering 7,000-square-feet, the foundation will also include a landscaped roof terrance and two gardens. Their debut exhibition will solely include works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, “reconnecting the East Village to a seminal figure of its past.” Brant goes on to say that “Basquiat has been a cornerstone of the East Village art scene for decades, and to bring his work back to the neighborhood that inspired it is a great privilege.” This exhibit will run until May 12 of this year, with free tickets available. However, even though there is currently a waitlist for tickets, many will still be able to attend. CLICK HERE to join the waitlist.

RECENT PRESS: David is quoted by Apartment Therapy in an article titled "8 Things Real Estate Agents Zero In On when they walk through your door."
“The first thing I notice about a property is how well the floor plan flows. I look at whether the rooms are functioning as they should be and if the home is livable. If the functionality is less than ideal, we then have to figure out what to do to make it work. After all, a home can have an array of great qualities like charm and views but layout issues shouldn’t be overlooked.” —David A. Palmieri, licensed real estate salesperson, Citi Habitats
