“Profile of George Glazer”

The New York Social Diary serves as a social, historical, and cultural chronicle of life in New York City. In July 2012 they visited George’s apartment as part of their ongoing “how they live” series. They found lots of globes and other intriguing antiques. The beautifully composed photos and entertaining interview where they talked about globes and collecting were on their web site:
“As you may or may not know, what I’m mainly known for is globes,” said George Glazer in what was possibly the best understatement we’ve heard as we stood in delighted silence taking in his Harry Potter living space filled with what is probably the world’s most extensive collection of American globes as well as a stuffed hornbill and much else besides. And he then he apologized for the dust, which we also loved but he didn’t seem to believe us and continued what had obviously been a massive clear out in honor of our visit. “Stop dusting,” we instructed him. A very serious and passionate collector, he was once a corporate lawyer and he was tremendous fun to talk to.
