Name/Title:  Niki Carlini, Receptionist/Administrative Assistant to Jacquie Tractenberg

Favorite Places in New York City: Central Park is my idea of paradise in the city, especially in the spring. It’s the perfect place to find a “Zen moment” whenever I need it. I also can’t live without Bloomingdales. I LOVE the friends and family discount and it’s the best place to find new wardrobe staples.

Must-Read Blogs: I’m addicted to: TMZ, Buzzfeed, Gawker, Gothamist, People, and DListed.

Things I Love Right Now: I’m having a rag & bone moment this season, so that’s my current fashion go-to.  I also love non-fiction stories right now. On my nightstand is Escape from Camp 14: One Man’s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West. It’s a true story from a North Korean prison camp and incredibly moving. Then, I’d have to say that my all-time favorite piece of jewelry, that I can’t live without, is my Cartier watch. It’s a classic.
