Our annual 40 Under 40 feature is like a box of fine chocolates: full of discoveries that are unique, outstanding and hard not to love. The talented and inspiring young people from our state that make up the Class of 2019 includes artists and musicians, entrepreneurs and political players, community activists, professional athletes, journalists and more. One of them, Charlie Ebersol, is about to launch a brand new football league (but he's not competing with the NFL). Also in the February issue, we take a look at some stunning new homes built by acclaimed architect Paul Harris and some new body-shaping treatments that can help eliminate unwanted pounds without surgery.
In This Issue:

Two new adjacent, multi-million-dollar spec houses on Darien’s Brush Island represent a new venture for Harris.
