At Rivers’ behest, the condominium board of 1 East 62nd, over which she presided, tried to kick out Hazan, accusing her of squatting in her own apartment after she defaulted on more than $200, 000 in condo fees.

Hazan bought the apartment in 2005 for $1.85 million and then fell behind on her mortgage payments. So in 2011 she transferred ownership of the condo which is now controlled by Real Estate Holdings Group LLC. That organization had filed a $15 million suit against 1 East 62nd Street’s board.

Located in Lennox Hill near the corner of Fifth Ave, 1 East 62nd Street is a 42 foot wide limestone mansion, designed by Horace Trumbauer, America’s great classical revivalist architect. Originally built in 1903 for John R. Drexel and his socialite wife Alice Troth Drexel, the house was converted into apartments in the 1930’s. Ernest Hemingway wrote The Snows of Kilamanjaro when he lived there.
