The Award-Winning Community Continues to Raise the Bar on What Senior Living Can Be

New York, NY – October 17, 2023 – Fall is off to a great start for residents at Inspīr Carnegie Hill, an Upper East Side luxury senior living community, who enjoyed an all star line-up of top-tier talent in recent weeks. Hosting Broadway stars, a culinary prodigy, a famed United States military intelligence officer, and more, Inspīr continues to reaffirm its status as the premier destination for luxury senior living in New York City.

First up for the fall programming was Zak Malamed, the leading Democratic candidate for New York’s 3rd Congressional District, up against the controversial incumbent George Santos. “Political events are among the most popular with our residents, as many of them were activists in their younger years,” said Evan Rossi, Senior Director of Resident Experience at Inspīr. Malamed, a Great Neck local and advocate for education reform and gun control, spoke candidly with residents about the current state of politics, his Jewish identity, and more.

Julie Benko, Talia Suskauer, and Ari Axelrod were next on the roster, delighting residents with an intimate conversation about Jewish identity followed by a stellar musical performance by the Broadway trio. With Benko playing the role of Fanny Brice in the revival of Funny Girl, Suskauer as Elphaba in WICKED, and Axelrod at the helm of award-winning A Place For Us: A Celebration of Jewish Broadway, this event underscores Inspīr’s mission to regularly bring world class talent through its doors, and make Broadway experiences accessible to their residents, many of whom can no longer attend performances in person.

Another fall favorite was Malcolm Nance, a U.S. Navy terrorism intelligence collector, code breaker, interrogator, and New York Times bestselling author, who was on hand to discuss his book, “The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election,” and deliver an exciting announcement about his upcoming memoir. Rossi continued, “Nance’s work as a Middle East policy advisor to the U.S. and international governments on special operations, homeland security, and intelligence was of great interest to our well-informed community.”

And most recently, food was the hot topic, as Inspīr Carnegie Hill had the privilege of hosting Flynn McGarry, often hailed as the “Justin Bieber of food,” for a highly anticipated culinary talk. McGarry is, at just 24 years old, a truly remarkable culinary prodigy and the owner-operator of the world-renowned luxury restaurant GEM. Residents enjoyed hearing about his extraordinary journey to culinary stardom, and his insight into the vibrant NYC restaurant scene.

Inspīr has no plans to slow their social, theatrical and culinary programming anytime soon, with a roster of exciting October events already underway. Later this month, residents will welcome Jim Obergefell, lead plaintiff in the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court case, Obergefell v. Hodges, to celebrate gains made in marriage equality and champion social progress in honor of LGBTQ+ History Month – an important observance for the community, which was recently recognized for its excellence in LGBTQ+ senior care.
