Rohatyn and Charles Renshaw she grew up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Following a traditional education at Miss Porter’s and then Barnard she broke out to become a model working for Eileen Ford while still in college. ‘I wasn’t discovered I walked right in demanding work!’ She moved on to a position as a television presenter, working from 1990-1993 on Entertainment news on HBO and followed up as the presenter with Alan Richman Of Dining Around, which ran from 1993 to 1998. Later she ran home décor stores in Southampton and Manhattan. A patron of the Ballet, Ms. Griscom was a familiar face around Manhattan. In her later years, as she fought the debilitating effects of ALS, she battled with grace and courage until the last.
