Tenants at a $26,000-per-month three-bedroom apartment at the Gramercy Park Hotel have filed suit against their landlords for allegedly not following through on promised amenities and furnishings. Paolo Zampolli, the former head of ID Model Management, is suing landlords Jon Johannesson and Ingibjorg Palmadottir at 50 Gramercy Park North, a married pair well-known as one of Iceland’s most posh couples, for $52,000. Among the claims in the suit is that the high-end kitchen they were promised turned out to be an Ikea-quality particleboard mess that broke down after eight months and that the landlords didn’t make necessary fixes to a cracked window and malfunctioning heating and cooling system. The landlords have not yet commented on the suit.
