Why is this woman in 59J?

We don't know much about MiMa, the new tower on West 42nd Street that Curbed refers to as "the Magical Island of Many Amenities in Hell's Kitchen."

But we are enjoying the ads for it, such as this one on East 13th Street near Broadway...


The ads don't make it clear that this actress actually lives there. She's currently in 59J. Is she visiting? What is she doing there, aside from carrying her shoes and flashing some thigh? Does she still make movies and plays? Or is she retired? So she retired from acting and is now carrying her shoes in 59J? We just need more to go on here.

Right now everyone reading this under 25 is asking "What's a play?"

Maybe they're positioning MiMA as a large-scale brothel.

She's in there updating her facebook status to say: "I'm currently in 59J!!!"

I wonder, too, if she has done any TV. Maybe "Law & Order" early on in her career?

I'm no expert in real-estate advertising, so please excuse my ignorance but - is this the first instance of explicitly marketing a property through the promise of celebrity neighbors? Not including word-of-mouth from eager brokers/sellers etc.... I've just never seen this type of advertising in print before.

@Grieve From the looks of her underweight body I'm guessing she's often cast as the "floater."

Clang. Clang.

Smacks of desperation. If these apartments are so great they wouldn't resort to this chintzy kind of advertising on the side of a pay phone.

We should be able to easily identify her — how many one-armed actresses can there be?
