As it turns out, Adam and Jessica are émigrés from Hell’s Kitchen. They lived in a loft for a decade in the mid-West 50s. 

Regarding this, she said to New York Times,

“We bought when Hell’s Kitchen wasn’t quite happening yet, and it was great, but we decided that having all that open space wasn’t so good as our children were approaching their teen years,”

The couple is blessed with two children. Their first child is their daughter Stella Bernstein, who is in her early twenties now. Jessica and Adam have another child, their son, Carlo Bernstein, who just stepped into his twenties in 2022.
