Brooke Astor was the immaculately dressed grande dame of New York City, a philanthropist, taste-setter and host extraordinaire, at ease with kings and queens and world leaders.
Jewelry and artwork from the estate of philanthropist Brooke Astor will go on the auction block next year.
NEW YORK (AP) — Brooke Astor, the civic leader, philanthropist and high-society fixture who gave away nearly $200 million to support New York City's great cultural institutions and a host of humbler projects, died yesterday. She was 105.
