Penelope "Pepper" and Rick move into New York's beautiful and wealthy Carnegie Hill neighborhood. Their apartment building is the Chelmsford Arms where the Board strives to hold onto their nearly all-white, childless, non-eccentric tenants. Pepper's parents are opposed to her marrying Rick, and she has her suspicions that he has been cheating on her. She goes through with the wedding anyway, and turns to her long-married neighbors George and Birdie and also Francis and Carol. Instead of encouragement, she learns their lives aren't so perfect either and money definitely cannot buy happiness.
