A piece of New York City history has become (just slightly) more affordable to own yourself. The mid-century home at 101 East 63rd Street on the Upper East Side, known as the Halston House, is one of only three residences in Manhattan designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph. Not only is the architecture iconic, but after designer Halston moved in in 1974, he spent the next 15 years hosting parties attended by the likes of Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli and Bianca Jagger. The former carriage house turned party destination turned luxury residence first hit the market for $40 million last year when it was said that contemporary art dealer Jeffrey Deitch was “angling” to make a deal. It must not have worked out, because it’s back on the market at a discount, asking $28 million.
In the 70s, there was Studio 54 and then there was the Halston House at 101 East 63rd Street. According to the Post, the mid-century modern gem where famous names like Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli and Bianca Jagger danced their decadent disco-glamour nights away has quietly been put on the market for $40 million.
