Mallory MacDonald is the vice president at BPCM, a global public relations and communications agency with offices in New York, London and Los Angeles, and glamorous clients including Jennifer Meyer jewelry, Hermès watches and Gucci eyewear. Yet MacDonald remains undeniably down-to-earth. When her husband suggested they move from Tribeca to the decidedly sleepier town of Greenwich, she says, “I was delighted,” she tells Rima Suqi in Elliman Magazine. MacDonald grew up in this tony enclave, just a 40-minute train ride from New York City. “It’s close, but feels very far away, with beautiful old homes and rolling green lawns,” she explains. MacDonald is living proof that, contrary to popular belief, you can go home again.
“I love Terra for dinner. It has really delicious, fresh Italian dishes and a fun, family atmosphere. My go-to is the grilled salmon or the Parmesan-crusted halibut. I also love Le Penguin. I go to Paris several times a year for work, and it is one of my all-time favorite cities. This little French bistro is as close to Paris as you can get. It’s quite cozy—perfect for date night.”
“Copious Row has a well-curated selection of cool, young clothing brands like Brock Collection, Monse, and Ryan Roche. The owner, David Chines, has a great eye. Even though I work in fashion, I find things that I haven’t seen elsewhere! And JPapers is the best stationery store. I get my notepads there, plus Christmas cards, birthday cards and more. They also have great hostess gifts.”
OFF THE CLOCK
“On the weekends my husband and I love to go to the beach at Tod’s Point. We are so lucky to live close to the water. On Sundays in summer we go early and sit on the beach and read—it’s my happy place. There is also a great park with a long bike/ walking loop. The views of Manhattan and Long Island are stunning.”
“I’m involved in the Greenwich Historical Society, headquartered at the Bush-Holley House Museum, a historic landmark site on Greenwich’s waterfront. It was one of the first American impressionist art colonies, where John Twachtman and Childe Hassam both painted.” Today it’s a cultural center that offers a variety of programs and exhibitions.
