ONE EAST SIXTY-SECOND STREET
The home of the late Joan Rivers is a testament to her style. The exceptionally glamorous 5,100-square-foot penthouse atop a pre-war building in the heart of Manhattan between Madison and Fifth Avenues is a short walk from Central Park. An exclusive elevator landing opens to the home’s centerpiece, a ballroom and adjoining music room distinguished by 23-foot ceilings, ornate fireplaces, gilded antique boiserie paneling, and soaring columns. The music room’s trompe l’oeil blue-sky ceiling is elegant and magnificent. The spacious dining room opens to a terrace through three French doors for more intimate alfresco affairs. The wood-paneled firelit library affords mesmerizing views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. On the second floor, a mezzanine overlooking the ballroom leads to both a sumptuous master suite with French doors opening to its own south-facing terrace, and to a separate two-bedroom guest suite with an independent living room, fireplace, and eat-in kitchen. The glowing romantic heritage of this abundant treasure will shine for generations.
