FEATURES
Living Single

In the city that never sleeps, everyone wants to know whom you’re sleeping with. New York’s exclusive Penn, Schoen & Berlund poll of the unattached, straight and gay: what they’re looking for, where they meet people, and what they do once they’ve met. Plus: Chris Smith talks to Julia Louis-Dreyfus about Seinfeld’s icon of urban-single-woman-hood; Nancy Jo Sales recounts dating tales that (trust us) even you haven’t imagined; Lily Burana on the tyranny of New York dating standards; and a guide to the next great spot to meet a mate.

BY NINA BURLEIGH

She’s manicured and blonde, but defendants had better not mess with Judge Leslie Crocker Snyder. Because if they do, this “unabashed fan of law enforcement” may well send them away for 200 years. Her toughness has won her criticism -- and a lot of fans who think she’ll be the next Manhattan D.A.

Tone Poem
BY VINCENT BOUCHER

Fall’s collections, full of bulky sweaters and slim suits, stuck to classic colors -- blacks, grays, whites, browns. But don’t get the wrong idea: These are not your father’s overcoats.
