Michael Gross is padding the staff of Avenue with two high-profile contributing editors.
Anthony Haden-Guest, the well-known British journalist and raconteur about town, will contribute a weekly cartoon to the Avenue website and a monthly one to the magazine.
Although more famous for his columns and books such as “” and “,” he has also been a noteworthy — if less-publicized — cartoonist, with two books of cartoons and verse to his credit.
Nina Griscom, the former Ford model well known in society circles, will pen a dishy last page of the magazine beginning in January.
She’s the stepdaughter of legendary investment banker Felix Rohatyn and spouse of real estate agent Leonel Piraino. The couple’s Central Park duplex has been featured in Architectural Digest.
