East Village Love Story: Chris and Dan

This Valentine’s Day, The Local is celebrating East Village couples. We’ve heard the stories of Doug and Bryan, James and Veronica, and Jimmy and Lexi. Today: meet Chris and Dan.

In 2007, Daniel Altman began dating his boss, jewelry designer and East Village resident Chris Habana. He worked as Chris’s assistant (and eventually moved in with him) during the two years they were a couple. Watch The Local’s video to hear how the old adage about mixing business with pleasure eventually proved true, and why Dan, 27, decided to keep working with Chris, 37, after their romantic relationship faded.
