A History of Olympic Tower and Apartment 46/47C Olympic Tower has a history worthy of a book; a biography or a pop culture/fashion lesson of a bygone era. Perhaps this book could have been published by Joni Evans, the publishing executive in charge of Simon and Schuster and Random House who lived in the building for several years. Olympic Tower was built in 1976 by developer Aristotle Onassis and partners, and designed by architectural company, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Not only was it one of the first condominiums in New York City, but it was the first all glass tower in the city. The Onassis family was only one of many prestigious families to live in this glamorous building, which also included the Gucci, Ferogamo, and Camerino families. Known as the Studio 54 of apartment buildings, it is not hard to believe that Liz Taylor would sneak into the building through the back entrance, to avoid the paparazzi that would always be outside, to enjoy the many glamorous parties hosted by Halston in his showroom which included a runway. Many of those parties were frequented by A-Listers such as Liza Minnelli, Carol Channing, Eartha Kitt, Truman Capote, Bianca Jagger and Martin Scorsese. Scorsese even brought some of his new up and comers at the time, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. 46/47C has been owned by the Onassis family, and Adnan Khashoggi. Most recently, the notorious Rafaello Follieri and super star Anne Hathaway leased this apartment during their storybook romance. Available for short term and long term, starting August 1st, 2015.
