Arty Party

This building on East 6th Street used to belong to millionaire artist Walter De Maria:

Millionaire artists's building.

When he died back in 2013, the building was sold to billionaire art collector Peter Brant. These days, art collectors don't just collect the works of artists, but their residences as well!

Recently, there's been a lot of activity setting up for a big party.
I'm not sure what the occasion is, but it must be important, since they erected barricades to prevent parking — for delivery trucks now, and limousines later!

No parking here.

East Village Today was the first to publish pictures of the inside of
this building, and now I am the first to publish photos again, ahead of the party:

Entrance, ahead of the party.

Dom Perignon — pretty swanky! It's sure to be full of A-List art glitterati!

More artsy, less fartsy… that's the East Village Today!

      Oh well, I'm not looking to be a social climber — I just like showing how cool the East Village is!
