LAST NIGHT’S  ULI BASH
Last night may have been cold and rainy, but the weather didn’t dampen the annual Urban Land Institute holiday party. Members from the New York, Northern New Jersey, and Westchester/Fairfield district councils convened at the Yale Club on Vanderbilt Avenue to be merry after what they say was an “interesting” year.

Speaking of being merry, here’s ULI New York chair Merrie Frankel of Moody’s Investor Services flanked by Westchester/Fairfield programming committee vice chair Andy Sternlieb and Northern New Jersey past chair Greg Senkevitch, both of AGN.

Robert A.M. Stern Architects’ Kevin Fitzgerald; FTI Consulting’s Sean Donohue; Integra Realty Resources’ Jeffrey Rogers; and Renaissance Real Estate’s Tom Bronner.

ULI member Glen Vetromile, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Paul Mas, and Patterson Belknap’s Andy Herz. Winter must be on its way—we’re hearing less about the green and more about the white. Andy is one of many who will be hitting the slopes this holiday season.
