01-At Home With | Joan Rivers

THIS WEEK’S AT HOME WITH features the late comedian, Joan Rivers’, 5,000-square-foot Upper East Side penthouse in New York City. Designed by the architect, Horace Trumbauer, the 11-room condominium triplex is located on 62nd street, just off Fifth Avenue. Built in 1903, the limestone building was originally a single-family mansion built for John R. Drexel and his wife, the socialite Alice Troth Drexel. The seven-story mansion was converted to apartments in the 1930s, and it is said that Ernest Hemingway lived in one of these apartments for many years. There are pillars and chandeliers, a grand ballroom and 23 foot ceilings, gilded details and crown mouldings, five fireplaces, stripes, florals and leopard print . . .
