My favorite place in the U.S. to visit is…New York City.

The first thing I do when I go to New York City is I go to… The St.Regis Hotel. It reminds me of Paris.

Everyone should visit…New York City… at least once…because of the excitement in the air all the time.

North Carolina…is a pleasant surprise…Fabulous trees and waterways for sailing.

My favorite restaurant in the U.S. is…“21” in New York because they seat me at my husband Rod Steiger’s table, which was Humphrey Bogart’s table before Rod!

The best place to find…Chinese food…is…Shun Lee Palace in New York.
