Who is Anna Delvey, you ask? Great question! To some, she is a blue-chip con-artist who scammed hundreds of thousands of dollars from New York City’s elite including Michael Xufu Huang, Aby Rosen, and Nadine Johnson, among others. To others, she is a case study on the psychological affects of late capitalism, the current state of the American Dream, and the unchecked excess of the super-wealthy. To a few, she is an emerging artist on the scene, hawking her pencil drawings for $30,000 a pop.
To me, she’s my new neighbor, who has been on house arrest in the East Village since last October and invited me to her New Year’s Eve party. Naturally, I brought along a few disposable cameras and plopped them in her hands, and here’s what she got back to me with. But first, a brief introduction from Ms. Delvey/Sorokin herself:
