Jerry In The Beale's Bedroom


I am a native New Yorker, a Brooklyn Italian.  I am perhaps best known for my appearance in the Maysles brothers’ 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, as well as the 2006 follow-up entitled The Beales of Grey Gardens.  During my time at Grey Gardens I was given the nickname “The Marble Faun” by Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale.  I was later portrayed in the musical adaptation of Grey Gardens on Broadway as The Marble Faun.

I have traveled the world and have had many rich experiences during the course of my life, including working alongside Walyand Flowers and his puppet “Madame” during their cabaret acts in the 70′s, as well as working for the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.  I later went on to drive a Taxi Cab for twenty years in New York City.

I’m now a sculptor and spend my time pursuing my lifelong ambition, carving stone at the Art Students of League of New York.
