Inspired by the phenomenal reporting by Jessica Pressler and brought to life as a limited series for Netflix by Shonda Rhimes, Invent Anna follows Anna Delvey, a 25-year-old woman who has posed as a German heiress and made her way through a world full of bags of cash. In real life (and on the show), Delvey (née Sorokin) manages the tabs for a group of luxury New York hotels, including Le Parker Meridien, the W, and the Beekman. She also steals an entire ass squirt at one point and bends over for a cool $20 million loan.
Anna Delvey (Julia Garner, building an enigmatic and unforgettable character) also wears the most shocking clothes and has excellent taste in art. (She was right; that photo of Cindy Sherman was captivating. In fact, she’s currently hanging out at MOMA.) In her quest to start an ambitious arts business at 281 Park, Anna schmoozes with the arts elite and ends up at an event at the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, New York.
Featured in the hit Netflix series Inventing Anna, the Storm King Art Center is a must-visit if you’re in the New York area.
