Yale Law grad Vanessa Selbst (center, the highest-earning female poker tournament player) joined Herrick Feinstein women lawyers--including real estate attorneys Stephanie Sklar, Lenora Boney, Dena Cohen, partners Belinda Schwartz and Gina Mavica, and Christina Ying--Thursday night at Manhattan Penthouse on 14th Street. Vanessa tells us she plays poker anywhere from zero to 80 hours a week, averaging 50. What's in NYC's hot hand, according to Belinda? Public transportation is driving development, more debt and equity are available, hotels are coming back, big retail names are leasing in edgier locations, and design is focusing more on amenities than square footage.

Our biggest-winning poker night was $80. Please tell us you can beat that. Email
