The Gatekeepers of Fifth and Park Avenues

Page Six Magazine published a handy little charticle on some of the most powerful co-op boards in town and the board members who stand between you and that $20 million co-op.

820 Fifth Avenue, Jayne Wrightsman
"Jayne has rejected fashion designer Valentino, as well as billionaires such as investor Ron Perelman and casino developer Steve Wynn."
740 Park Avenue, Charles Stevenson
"Barbra Streisand was rejected because the board thought 'she'd give too many parties.' Others denied include Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbara Walters.
950 Fifth Avenue, Mort Zuckerman
"950 Fifth could be the city's most notorious bachelor pad. Robert Hurst and Mort Zuckerman are reportedly single, and ex-residents Loews Hotel CEO Jonathan Tisch and former Tyco head Dennis Kozlowski were bachelors when they resided here."
834 Fifth Avenue, Woody Johnson
"Who Gets Rejected: Corporate raider Asher Edelman, said to be the inspiration for the Gordon Gekko character in Wall Street, was turned down because the board thought his lifestyle was too 'flashy,' according to brokers."
2 East 67th Street, Arthur Carter
"Who Gets Rejected: One woman was allegedly turned down by the board because she was friends with Arthur Carter’s ex-wife, actress Dixie Carter, says an inside source."
4 East 66th Street, Ezra Zilkha and Ace Greenberg
"Who Gets Rejected: 'They don't want people from the arts.' They want business and industry types.' Ezra's a major Republican donor and McCain supporter, so a loudmouth lefty probably has little chance of endearing himself here.
