It is the winter of 1992 in New York City, and everyone is talking economic doom and gloom. Macy's has just declared bankruptcy, Citicorp has lost almost a billion and a half dollars in the last six months, local unemployment has topped 10 percent, and shuttered storefronts dot local shopping districts.Into the midst of this dismal situation comes yours truly, trying to find (of all things) a location for a film shoot. I am representing Weekend at Bernie's II, a Hollywood feature film with a week's shooting in middle May. One of the locations I am searching for is a high-level corporate boardroom with a spectacular view of the New York skyline.
