J Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons’ Park Slope home sold in November 2011 beyond its listing price of $3.75 million to Vincent and Tracy Martin. The house at 178 Garfield was truly spectacular as these images convey.
Curbed NYC share the “brokerbabble” about the property:
An open double parlor, beautiful (but not fussy) plaster cornices & medallions, aged pine floors, and 7 restored limestone mantels are just a few of the special details of this magnificent house. The casually chic home boasts 7 bedrooms, 3.5 luxuriously appointed baths, an eat-in cook’s kitchen with top of the line appliances, large private terrace off the master bedroom and a cellar that has been converted to a media room for entertaining.
Reports are that Lyons then moved to Tribeca’s American Express Carriage House into one of two shared units which she rented until finding a new permanent residence. Lyons divorced artist Vincent Mazeau for business executive Courtney Crangi Daily Mail UK featured one of the units, decorated in Jenna Lyons style. Lyons has since moved.
Last month Jenna Lyons was honored at Glamour’s ‘Women of the Year’ ceremony in New York. After being named 2012’s ‘Fashion Original’, she stepped onstage to say:
“Nothing worth having is easy.” The executive went on to offer some special thanks to her son Beckett “for reminding me that the world revolves around him every day,” her “mentor” J Crew CEO Mickey Drexler and “Courtney, who has shown me new love.”
“You see a polished girl with a fancy title, but my start was not so fancy,” she said, recounting her start as an assistant to an assistant, working in a hallway without a proper desk. She spoke about wanting to make women feel special because she felt awkward and “ugly” growing up.
Tweets went out under the hash tag #pinktoenailsforever, a reference to Dr. Keith Ablow’s furor over Lyons painting her son’s toenails pink for a day or two.
