This week is the Voice‘s Best of NYC issue, our annual opportunity to bestow awards like Best Ex-Prisoners’ Publicist and Best Reason to Put a Ring On It on our favorite things. In turn, we asked a few of our favorite New Yorkers to name their favorite local things.
Alex is the only real housewife not hailing from Manhattan. Here the well-known Brooklyn resident picks the borough’s bests.
New York phobia?
I’m not afraid of anything, which you already knew because I signed up for a reality show.
Favorite fellow New Yorker?
Besides my husband Simon? Cowboy Randy from the Village People.
Best restaurant in Brooklyn?
Jolie on Altantic Avenue or Convivium Osteria on Fifth Avenue.
Best place to shop in Brooklyn?
Epaulet on Smith Street.
Best place to spot a Real Housewife?
Any literary agent’s office, as we’re all writing books. Ours is Little Kids, Big City due out March 31. And we actually wrote it all by ourselves. What a concept!
