It doesn’t look like Marc Jacobs‘ apartment woes will be over anytime soon. He was hoping to move back into his West Village apartment at Superior Ink after hiding out uptown at The Mark to escape Hurricane Sandy, but that could actually take longer than he expected.
Page Six reports that owner’s told residents that corrosive seawater got into the pipes, and that the building “could be unlivable for months”. But it gets worse, and a source tells the paper: “Owners will not get help to relocate and should call their insurance provider.” Ouch.
The situation is definitely less than ideal, but seeing as how the residents include Hilary Swank and Lily Aldridge, we’re pretty sure they’ll have no problem finding alternate accommodations. Perhaps Diane von Furstenberg has a guest room or two to spare?
