Save Venice, but trash our $52 million Central Park co-op!
A billionaire blue blood financier let guests vandalize his fancy Upper East Side pad with graffiti while playing beer pong following a swanky society gala.
The glamorous Save Venice masquerade ball has become a hotter ticket than the Met Gala among New York’s elite.
Masked guests this year included Sienna Miller and too many princesses to count, including Maria-Olympia of Greece , Marie-Chantal of Greece and Saudi royal Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz.
But while an official Save Venice after-party was held at high-end eatery the Pool, we hear the place to be was a fun-filled bash at Wall Street investor Chase Coleman III’ s apartment at an East 66th Street co-op near Central Park, where guests were invited to vandalize the French plastered walls with cans of spray paint as they partied into the early hours.
Coleman III — who’s a descendant of Peter Stuyvestant — and his wife, Stephanie, purchased the pad in 2016 for $52 million.
It is vacant, waiting to be redone by hot architect Peter Marino.
The couple will reportedly combine the 15-room abode with the two units they own a floor above.
Demolition starts this week, so they offered the walls as canvasses for the arty crowd.
“A select group migrated to this vacant apartment,” a source told Page Six. “All the lights were off, and people were spray-painting the apartment and playing beer pong all night.”
The guest list also included Paris Hilton, Theodora Richards, and a host of art insiders and collectors.
Partygoers were seen on social media tagging up the walls, but their work was far from a masterpiece.
One woman in a sparkly gown sprayed “F – – k u,” while a tracksuited man posted a selfie captioned, “Talents include $100 million in property damage.” (Banksy won’t be losing sleep.)
Other residents of the tony co-op include Paul Allen and Mercedes Bass.
Coleman — whose firm just led a $17 million investment round in a cannabis startup, Green Bits — didn’t comment.
