For a fashion photographer known for neon sets, nude ladies, and provocative posing, David LaChapelle sure picked a classy 'n' classic apartment for his New York move. The celebrity photog-turned-artist just closed on a chocolate-hued 1BR, 1BA parlor-level co-op on West 21st Street for $1,739,500. Architects Povero & Company worked with interior Joseph Picardo to kit out the interior with Italianate detailing, hand carved plaster moldings, massive wooden doors, marble fireplaces, etched glass, custom cabinetry, built-in audio and visual systems, electro-gadgetry window treatments. "Seminary Block," interesting choice for one of fashion's more outré, envelope-pushing image makers.
