The entire Deanna Kory Team sincerely hopes that you, your family and friends are in good health and staying safe. It is now more than a month since our great City has shut down and for many of us, the sudden shift overtook every aspect of our lives.

That said, New Yorkers are perhaps some of the most resilient people on earth and no doubt we will work hard to rebuild our lives in the city we are proud to call home.
