GARBO.  The Hollywood Legend…………lived here for 40 years. Three bed, three bath, sprawling rooms……….windows in every direction……..the apt sits on the East River.

Her heirs are selling the apartment for a mere $5.95 million.  It is a resplendent apartment filled with grace and sophistication that you would imagine Garbo living in.

The apartment takes up the entire 5th floor of the exclusive CAMPANILE at 450 East 52s street.  Garbo enjoyed the water views………..now you can too.

For years, Galeries Lafayette sold Tom’s art……….on placemats for the dining table.

My friend, Michael, was at DIFFA on Sunday and took these photos.

The show on PIER 92 is a 5-day showcase of extraordinary tabletop designs for a worthy cause.

DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS raises awareness and grants funds to organizations that fight HIV/AIDS by providing treatment and direct care services for people living with the disease.

DIFFA…..Dining by Design…….on the pier in the Hudson River.  After the show…….donors can dine in one of the dozens of room settings.

It is a wonderful way to raise awareness of individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS.

The event raised over a million $$$.

The apartment is FOR SALE…….$75 million……..but the furnishings are sold separately.  Each room has only one window………except the corner bedroom which has two.  As you can see the rooms are quite small……BUT $75 mil does not buy a lot in New York City.
