At Halston’s

We would very much like to arrange a party at one of the most iconic townhouses in New York, the Paul Rudolph-designed building at 101 East 63 Street. In 1974 the property was bought by American fashion designer Halston who turned it into a playground for the likes of Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, all sorts of fashionistas and rentboys and Liza Minnelli.

It would be fitting to start the event with music illustrating the early years of the decadent N.Y disco scene, first with fast beats and tracks with luxurious orchestration. Then, during Bolly and hors d’oeuvers, we could play something more relaxed. The fast section contains the great, very long half-instrumental version of the often injustly ignored Claudja Barry tune “Why Must A Girl Like Me”.

The house is currently for sale. The price is 40 million dollars.
