2/–/1977 – ‘Began meetings with Peter Strauss on new building.’

The building that Jim purchased at 117 East 69th Street to house his company took some time to renovate and furnish. The result was satisfying to Jim – he enjoyed hosting meetings and parties there and seeing his staff busily at work on the odd-shaped floors. The decorating efforts were lauded by all who visited and the final product was featured in a multi-page spread in Interior Design magazine three years after Jim started the plan with architect Peter Strauss.
