LAST NIGHT IN NEW YORK

With David Patrick Columbia

Directed by Matthew Miele 

A LOVE LETTER TO NEW YORK & ITS SOCIETY

BEGINS STREAMING ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS

VALENTINE’S DAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2023

(What Could Be Better)

Meet social arbiter and historian David Patrick Columbia. If you are an avid reader of “New York Social Diary” you already know him. If you just enjoy gossip about the powerful, the rich, the famous, and all those who aspire to be part of ‘society,' he is the man for you.

            Last Night In New York is the story of David (or DPC) and his journeys through the ballrooms and mansions; benefits and buffets; restaurants (Michael’s) and private homes of New York, the Hamptons, Palm Beach and all around the social globe, to bring us each morning the comings and goings of the social elite (c’mon I know you’re captivated). But it’s not just a travelogue, this fascinating documentary examines what society is, how it has changed and how it continues to evolve; but it's also about social mobility, achieving one's dreams, self-reliance, and self re-invention. It's the American dream via a circuitous route.

            And, what a dream it is. What other story can bring you the likes of an Aston, Rockefeller, Ford, Roosevelt, Griscom, Gutfreund, DeWoody, Loeb, Lord, Roehm, Steinberg, Gross, Palermo and so many other movers and shakers of the social power elite. It’s so much fun listening to the chatter and patter about David and his nightly adventures from those he is chronicling.

            New York Social Diary — created in 2001 — serves as a social, historical, and cultural chronicle of life in New York City, and receives approximately one million unique visitors per month from all over the country and overseas.

            Here’s just a hint:  https://vimeo.com/251669754

            David Patrick Columbia’s own compelling life story is the thread that runs through the film.  His patrician looks and demeanor belie the fact that he had a troubled upbringing.  His handsome father was chauffeur to “Black Jack” Bouvier, Jackie Kennedy's father. David's childhood in Western Massachusetts was mired in near poverty. And his family history is marked by numerous tragedies, but through it all David was determined to lead a better life.  With a combination of sheer will, hard work and serendipity, he propelled himself forward via a series of incarnations:  actor, stockbroker, seller of drug paraphernalia and women's clothing, author, magazine editor and finally, social columnist.

Through all the black-tie events, David, who embodies the essence of New York society with his clever wit and positive attitude, still feels like a bit of an outsider. As DPC said in a NY Post story, “I didn’t feel like I didn’t belong, but I never felt like I was quite good enough to be part of the group.” He continued, “I’m an observer and have always been an observer. I realize that everybody is really interesting, particularly if you get to know about their lives.” 

This past November, David was honored as a Living Landmark by the New York Landmarks Conservancy alongside Tom Wolfe, Robert A.M. Stern and Frank Stella among others "who make New York 'New York’”. In a way, things have come full circle.

Last Night In New York is directed by Matthew Miele, director of Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, Always at the Carlyle and more recently, a film about renowned photographer Harry Benson (Harry Benson: Shoot First), among other acclaimed documentaries. The producers are Delia von Neuschatz, also featured in the film, and Jeffrey Hirsch, himself an author and chronicler for New York Social Diary.

Last Night In New York has a similar sensibility as "Bill Cunningham New York" with a bit of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” I hope you are intrigued and interested in a review, feature, interview, and the opportunity to step out into the New York night with David Patrick Columbia.

I look forward to speaking with you about Last Night in New York and David Patrick Columbia. David, the filmmakers, and many of the ‘society’ folk in the film are available for interviews.
