Through the window of C. David Heymann's 14th-floor apartment on Central Park West, the tender green leaves of spring sag under the weight of a heavy rain. On the other side of the park's verdant expanse, on fashionable Fifth Avenue, lives a woman named Jackie. Whether Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis likes it or not, C.
