Located atop a limestone mansion at 1 E. 62nd Street (off Fifth Avenue, in the Upper East Side’s Lenox Hill sub-neighborhood) that was designed by architect Horace Trumbauer and built in 1903 for John R. Drexel and his socialite wife Alice Troth Drexel (1865-1947), Rivers’ three-bedroom condo includes what once had been a double-height ballroom.
Rivers, 76, has renovated the unit, the Times noted, hiring artisans to strip away layers of paint and grime from elaborate paneling, recreate gilded molding and paint “the ballroom ceiling pale blue with white clouds.”
On a personal level I feel about Joan's apartment pretty much as I feel about her - completely over-decorated and charmless!
Even though you cover the walls with gold and paint the sky in the ceiling... doesn't make it beautiful! But that's just my opinion...
