Back to the Future: 535 West End Avenue


An ongoing showhouse featuring top-name designers inspired a Prestige magazine-sponsored cocktail party last week. The exhibited rooms, in turn, were inspired by the theme of "celebrating extraordinary women," icons like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Peggy Guggenheim, Ingrid Bergman and Dorothy Draper.

But the dramatic setting for all this, Extell Development's Company's shiny new offering at 535 West End Avenue, inspired something else among attendees: jealousy. Cause we don't live at 535 West End Avenue.
