Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Spencer House at 1 East 62nd Street is a limestone, 42-foot-wide, mansion designed in 1904 by Horace Trumbauer for John and Alice Troth Drexel and its triplex penthouse with a curved bay window facing Central Park in the master bedroom was later the home for many years of Joan Rivers, the famous comedian who died in 2014 at the age of 81.

The canopied entrance of this very elegant building, which has 12 condominium apartments, leads to a very spacious lobby but nothing prepared a visitor for the lavishness of Ms. River’s huge 23-foot-high, living/dining room several floors above.  For the brash entertainer, her domestic elegance bordered on the truly incongruous but was unquestionably genuine.  She and her apartment were the real thing."
