“In New York State they have a strange law that says you can’t get a divorce unless you can prove adultery. And that is weird because the Ten Commandments say, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery,’ but New York State says you have to. It’s like a toss-up between God and Rockefeller.”
John D. Rockefeller was as close to being the god of New York as it gets. He got way rich because of oil. But he didn’t stop there. He produced a family that went on to become even more powerful. We New Yorkers should be thanking them for being responsible for building icons such as Rock Center, The Cloisters, and MoMA. They’re even responsible for a show you either loved or hated, 30 Rock.
This family donated to and created prestigious universities, founded Chase Manhattan Bank, and is widely considered to be the most powerful family the United States has ever seen. While they have so much power, they have one flaw: none of them look their best. They wear designer clothes, $400,000 shoes, and have haircuts so precise they could tell you the exact length of every strand of hair on their heads.
However, they don’t own any Gramercy Bags. Unless one of them has purchased one under a pseudonym, but we will never know for sure if that’s the case. The point is, while John D. Rockefeller was successful, imagine how much better he could have done had he had an elegant, yet professional, Gramercy Bag over his shoulder to hold his legal documents, building blueprints, and oil.
(Please note that we do not advise you to transport oil in your stylish Rockefeller Bag, but it is, in fact, capable of doing so.)
