Have you see the movie Grey Gardens? If you haven’t yet you must. It is story about Jacqueline Kennedy’s cousin and aunt, Little and Big Edie Bouvier Beale, who lived at Grey Gardens where at one time were the toast of the town, rich, glamourous and beautiful and how they ended up living in squalor with hundreds of cats. It is a fascinating story. Grey Gardens has been purchased and totally renovated by Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee.
