Ashley K. Barnes was flattered to be chosen as the lead photographer for, Made in NY 2012. This was an event held at Gracie Mansion in Manhattan and honored the amazing performers who have come out of New York City. The evening included an intimate cocktail party with celebrities such as Meryl Streep, Robert de Niro, Ben Stiller, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Ripa, Joan Rivers, and the guests of honor, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. After the gathering inside Gracie Mansion, the group headed outside to the backyard where an elaborate award ceremony took place. It was a magical night.
