As careers go, Audrey Gelman should be a case study for how to be a successful "multi-hyphenate": she's the press secretary for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, an actress on HBO's hit series Girls (she plays the headband-sporting rival to Allison Williams' Marnie), and a Downtown for Democracy board member who helped re-launch the PAC of choice for NYC's arty, young progressive set. (And this is to say nothing of her personal life, which includes being the girlfriend of celebrity photographer Terry Richardson and the best friend of Girls creator/star Lena Dunham.) But, the way Gelman sees it, her many-layered life is not unusual for the born-and-bred New Yorker. "I think my range of interests and the pursuits I'm involved in are just a reflection of the dynamism of New York," Gelman says. "All city kids are really comfortable being eclectic."
