Would be a good place to house those with Electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

On a side note, I surely hope Park Lane would be of similar height or greater to CPT. Somewhat balance the Central Park East skyline.

Billionaire Harry Macklowe celebrates marrying Patricia Landeau with Park Avenue installation





By Ian Mohr
March 6, 2019


Quote:
Mega-developer Harry Macklowe has found the perfect wedding present for the beautiful French woman he’s marrying Thursday — a towering portrait of the two of them, smiling side by side.

And it’s plastered all over the very same Park Avenue building where his ex-wife was once buying an apartment.

The billionaire’s sky-high proclamation of love for Patricia Landeau — and of something less-than-love for the former Mrs. Macklowe — was erected on Tuesday and Wednesday at Park Avenue and East 56th Street.

Visible for blocks, the polyester-mesh installation graces the northwest corner of Macklowe’s landmark condominium complex at 432 Park Ave., billed as the tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere.

The portrait of the two lovebirds stretches 42-feet-by-24-feet, and is a photo by the famed Parisian firm Studio Harcourt.


It’s in black and white, as is its unwritten message to 432 Park Ave. resident Linda Macklowe, 80, who will not be on any of the guest lists Thursday.

The big day for Macklowe, 81, and Landeau, who is in her early 60s, will begin with a wedding ceremony at “Weylin,” the event venue inside the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank in Brooklyn.

Some 100 guests, including a number of bride’s closest pals from Paris, will then head to the French Manhattan hotspot, Le Coucou.

On Thursday evening, 200 guests will attend a reception — where else? — on the 78th floor of 432 Park.

It’s the very same floor that Harry and Linda had fought so fiercely over the last couple years, as they contentiously divvied up their assets.

But Linda reportedly walked away from closing on a 78th-floor posh pad at 432 Park amid a legal skirmish.

The wedding on Thursday morning will be officiated by presiding New York Supreme Court Justice Alan Scheinkman. For the reception, the entire 78th floor of Macklowe’s Park Avenue tower has been gutted to be transformed into a “massive ballroom” by events guru David Monn, we’re told. Monn’s creating a white-themed bash, complete with all white chandeliers, candles and flowers. (His clients have included David and Julia Koch, Lizzie Tisch and Martha Stewart.)

Top caterer Olivier Cheng’s is teaming with Paris’ Caviar Kaspia on the food, and the French pop act Gypsy Queens will perform.

The bride’s wearing Chanel at the ceremony and Chloe at the reception, we hear, while Macklowe’s opting for Brioni.

Over-the-moon groom Harry told us of the wedding plans and Park Avenue installation: “Our smiling faces will be on a building that I built — and I am proud of my wife, my life, my friends and colleagues.” He said, “It gives me a great thrill” to “share this moment of joy and happiness.”

Linda filed for divorce in 2016, livid that for as long as two years, Harry had been secretly keeping Landeau in another of his properties, at 737 Park Ave., as The Post revealed at the time.

The unhappy spouses sparred contentiously over their waterfront East Hamptons home, and over their $700 million art collection, including paintings from Andy Warhol’s “Nine Marilyns” series, a Mark Rothko, and an Alberto Giacometti statue.

The two also fought at length over their adjoining apartments at 432 Park Ave., which together comprise the entire 78th floor of the luxury skyscraper.

In court, Linda’s lawyer accused Harry of “dirty tricks” — saying he’d sneakily tried to break through a wall and annex a third of her unit to increase the size of the space he intended to share with Landeau.

Harry’s side, in turn, accused Linda’s side of using her interest in the property “as a kind of a weapon” in the divorce.

Now, it’s Harry who appears to have weaponized the property.

“I’ve never seen something like that before,” said one agog tourist, Robbie James, 33, of Chicago.

Not sure if this is in bad tastes or not, so I'll just post links...but you can clearly see a shower here. So is someone watching J-Lo and A-Rod shower?

A viral photo of Alex Rodriguez on the toilet has many upset over privacy violation

When it comes to “watching the throne,” this probably isn’t what Alex Rodriguez was hoping for.

A photo of the baseball-star-turned-broadcaster sitting on the toilet in the $17.5 million New York City home he shares with fiancee Jennifer Lopez is making the rounds on the internet, causing many to say that it’s an example of prying eyes going too far when it comes to infringing upon privacy.

The photo shows Rodriguez sitting on the toilet in his luxurious, white-marble lavatory. Wearing a blue shirt, Rodriguez is seen looking at what appears to be his phone as he sits by the open shade, with customized “A” towels hanging alongside.

While the person who took the photo hasn’t been publicly identified, the photo was clearly taken from inside the Park Avenue building next door.

Why anyone would want their toilet right next to a massive floor to ceiling window is beyond me.
