Angele Renee Simmons, Queens native and daughter of Rev Run, that borough’s hip-hop poet laureate, might spend more time in Manhattan and Saddle River, New Jersey than Hollis these days. But the Pasty footwear co-founder and reality TV starlet still keeps it real with her favorite city venues for eating, dancing and primping.
