Resident Joan Rivers Tried to Kick from Coop Seeling Apt for $6 Million

The apartment belongs to Elizabeth Hazan, whom Rivers had worked to evict from her home.

1 East 62nd Street

An apartment that belongs to a woman who feuded with her neighbor the late Joan Rivers and was at the center of a $15 million lawsuit is now on the market for $6 million, the New York Post has reported. The condominium apartment is located at 1 East 62nd Street in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

The apartment belongs to Elizabeth Hazan, who Rivers had worked to evict from her home there. It has one bedroom and 1, 100 square feet. Hazan paid only $1.85 million for it 10 years ago.

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.
