The Butler Got It

The Independent has a story about a butler in New York who has just inherited one of the best apartments in the city, from his longtime employer, the actress Ruth Ford.
  • The Dakota, like most pre-war residences in Manhattan, is a co-operative building where residents own shares, not bricks. A co-op building has a co-op board that sets the rules; in the case of the Dakota it is going to be conservative and pernickety. Is it about to allow a former butler actually to occupy either one of the apartments in the building he has come to control?
