Jeff Koons’ Diamond In The Roof at NYC’s Swanky Sutton Place

August 25, 2009

Hedge-fund mogul Richard Perry has distinctively placed one of Jeff Koons’ famous “Diamond” sculpture on the roof of his $10.9 Million luxury penthouse in Manhattan’s swanky East Side at 1 Sutton Place. Having paid 2.3 million dollars in 2005 for the piece, he installed his flashy green diamond on the roof using a crane in 2007. There is also a wall behind the diamond encrusted with gemstones. That’s when the complaints started coming in. “The 5ft tall stainless steel metallic sculpture apparently reflected the sun into “laser beam” rays into the surrounding neighbors’ windows. The diamond has since been adjusted and angled in an effort to be more conscious of nearby residents”. Another neighbor have also commented “I think it’s as ugly as it comes.”
