Jeezis, Mary and Joseph.
As many of you may have heard or already read, one of New York’s finest celebrity real estate agents was found bludgeoned to death in her Fifth Avenue aerie. Once upon a time Linda Stein managed the proto-punk band The Ramones. Later she became a real estate agent who helped rich and famous luminaries like Steven Spielberg, Angelina Jolie, Madonna, and Calvin Klein find palatial pads in New York City.
Miz Stein was a larger than life presence who could swear like a sailor and counted Sylvester Stallone and Elton John as pals and clients not to mention Demi Moore and Bruce Willis and Andrew Lloyd Weber. Miz Stein, an agent with the Prudential Douglas Elliman juggernaut was the lucky lady who listed artist Peter Beard‘s $26,000,000 cottage compound in Montauk that Your Mama discussed back in August.
Children, it’s very rare for a person to be murdered in their own home on Fifth Avenue. The buildings along that rarefied corridor crawl with doormen, elevator operators, and often the buildings are fitted with a closed circuit television camera security system. Whomever it was that had an axe to grind (or a blunt object to clobber with) is likely to be discovered, revealed and prosecuted to fullest extent of the law.
Your Mama offers our sincere condolences to Miz Stein’s family and friends.
