WEEKENDEDITION Some might say this $25,000 a month rental at 1 East 62nd Street in Lenox Hill could probably afford to tone down the décor.

Within this French neo-Classical two-bedroom duplex, intensely patterned walls battle against equally elaborate floors and a superfluity of fainting couches, according to Curbed. Sule Haskell of Douglas Elliman has the listing.

The building’s condo board is presided over by none other than Joan Rivers, the self-described “scary lady upstairs.” Rivers recently won a lawsuit against a squatter in the luxurious building. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
